Cathi Black

Music Supervisor/Producer,
Beautiful Oblivion Entertainment
North Hollywood, CA, USA
Cathi Black is a Toronto native with a long love affair with music. Since the 90’s Cathi Black has been involved in various aspects of the music industry, gaining her initial experience while still based in her native Canada . It was in Toronto where she got into concert promotion and merchandising with Brokum Entertainment and worked on tours for Lollapalooza, NIN, Sisters of Mercy, Pink Floyd, Van Halen, Metallica….

Her marketing and promotion experiences led to her to the film and music conference circuit, producing in Vancouver (MusicWest and VIFF) at the height of the ‘grunge’ movement, an exciting time for independent film and music.

By early 2001, the sunny climes of California were calling, and Cathi relocated to Los Angeles where she jumped into the studio system and worked in the film/music division at Sony Pictures. She was soon thereafter offered a job at EMI as associate Music Supervisor to internationally renowned Music Supervisor Budd Carr, where she worked on such films as Enemy at the Gates, Rock Star, The Score, Life or Something Like It and Beyond Borders.

In the next step of her career, she was a pioneer of the initiation of music supervision for feature film trailers, and went on to music supervise 100s of campaigns for some of the top trailer houses in Los Angeles.

Cathi continues to be uniquely positioned on both sides of the music supervision and licensing spectrum as both the CEO of Beautiful Oblivion Entertainment and VP Business Development/Music Supervision of proTunes.
