Heritage Music Group Launches Seven New Divisions
Heritage Music Group (HMG) Widens Entertainment Industry Footprint By Launching Seven New Creative Divisions
On the heels of his Five Grammy debut, Jovan Dawkins continues to elevate Heritage Music Group’s creative impact across all entertainment platforms
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fresh from Heritage Music Group’s staggering five-Grammy debut at the 2018 Grammy Awards, Founder and driving force behind HMG, Jovan Dawkins, is proud to announce the launch of seven full-service divisions operating under the Heritage Music Group umbrella.
While HMG’s already established Publishing
HMG’s Music Division is one of the most dynamic new developments for Jovan’s team. Aligned with powerhouse distribution partner, Universal Music Group Distribution, HMG’s Music Division is comprised of a full-service label for marketing and promotion, an entire faith-based arm featuring the most prominent artists in the genre, a legacy artist arm for legends throughout history, and a new artist arm breaking the legends of tomorrow.
HMG’s CEO, Jovan Dawkins, said, “It is pure heart, soul, and passion that drives every drop of energy that fuels Heritage Music Group’s artists and projects across the board. Having an opportunity to expand the ways we can share that pure passion and energy across platforms is what makes our brand, vision, and sound one-of-a-kind.” Dawkins continued, “while the past year has brought unimaginable success to the entire HMG family, what we are building with our HMG expansion is intended to share that joy and success with new audiences, new artists, new brands, and most importantly, those in need of a helping hand.”
As this new chapter unfolds, each division has already hit the ground running. The HMG Production Division is already recognized as one of the most potent production forces in the industry today with Jovan and HMG currently celebrating 6 number one (#1) records this year alone. Working closely with the Production Division is HMG’s Studio Division, which is growing rapidly with more rooms being added by the day. Each room is equipped with the most powerful tools and teams in the industry today.
HMG’s new Film Division is preparing to announce one of the most profound biopics to hit the industry since “Ray”, and is already hard at work on several scoring and production projects in 2018. Working closely on the production side is HMG’s Tech Division, which helps incubate developing tech-driven projects, while establishing creative platforms where the new HMG tech can make an immediate impact.
As HMG’s Marketing Division has already made quite an impact throughout the music industry, Jovan and his HMG team have been contributing to the development of new campaigns for brands like Microsoft and Beats for many years. While Marketing is a powerful force, it is the Purpose/Cause-driven Division that incorporates the most emotionally charged projects designed to give back to the community and beyond. While Jovan and his team have been rewarding audiences with hits, it is the current cause driven projects that will create and inspire meaningful change.
As Jovan Dawkins and the Heritage Music Group continue to change the music industry for the best, it is the teams and projects behind each of HMG’s new divisions that will change virtually everything in entertainment for years to come.
About Heritage Music Group (HMG)

Jovan Dawkins and HMG impacted the industry immediately by taking home 5 Grammys in 2018. As word of HMG’s success spread, Jovan recognized the need to add several new dimensions to the original HMG footprint.

Heritage Music Group Debuts With Five GRAMMY Wins
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Heritage Music Group, started 2018 with a resounding boom taking away five GRAMMY wins this year from its recently acquired publishing catalogue. Among those wins are R&B Album of The Year (Bruno Mars “24KMagic”); Song of The Year (Bruno Mars “That’s What I Like”); Best R&B Song of The Year (Bruno Mars “That’s What I Like).
Heritage Music Group is the brainchild of Jovan Dawkins, a member of the celebrated three-man production company the Co-Captains whose credits include multiple currently charting songs, including the title track of Tank’s new album “Savage”, Tamar Braxton’s”My Forever”, and Gospel Music’s Tye Tribett and his #1 album entitled “The Bloody Win.”
Heritage hired GRAMMY-winning engineer and producer Paul Ring as their President of Business Operations. Ring has had a long tenure of success as President of two prominent record companies that have been distributed exclusively through Universal Music Group over the past 23 years.
Ring’s tenure began in 1995 as President of Private Eye Records that had legendary artists such as Rick James, Cameo Gap Band and James Brown. In 2000, he launched Bungalo Records, which has sustained a rich and diverse history of great artists and producers including Rodney Jerkins, DJ Quik and Patti LaBelle.
Heritage’s GRAMMY wins are the fruit of a major catalogue purchase by Dawkins, the CEO. The acquisition included award-winning titles from Bruno Mars and Rihanna, “No Air” featuring Chris Brown and Jordin Sparks, the new single “Filthy” from Justin Timberlake, and “How You Gonna Act Like That” from Tyreese. The full slate is touted as one of the most significant collections acquired in recent times.
Heritage is launching their record division with several high-powered signings that will be announced next month.
Heritage CEO Jovan Dawkins stated that “Heritage has been set up to bring their artists tremendous success by integrating high-end branding opportunities along with movie soundtrack placements along with top of the line distribution through Universal Music Distribution.” Heritage will afford their artist synch placement opportunities with vehicles that are controlled by Dawkins and the company as part of their music supervision operations.
