Groove Guild, Founder & Head of Music Supervision

Dave Roberge�s career in the music industry began when he launched Everfine Artist Management and Everfine Records to support the career of then emerging recording & touring artist O.A.R. In 2001, Everfine Records signed a Distribution Agreement with ADA releasing three albums under the deal. That relationship led Everfine into entering a strategic label partnership with Lava/Atlantic Records in 2003. This venture allowed Everfine Records to maintain its independent spirit while gaining access to greater resources in order to reach a broader audience. Everfine released 3 albums independently and supported the release of 4 albums on Everfine/Lava/Atlantic Records between 2003 and 2012 all debuting on the Billboard Sales Charts. During this time, Roberge and his team developed, produced and promoted �The Feeling Better than Everfine� Music Festival in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006 which showcased developing & emerging artists.
