“My career as a media and technology lawyer started in 1996 with Orange, followed by a move to Turner Broadcasting in 2002. I am a big fan of live music, it is by far the best way to experience music. Fezah’s mission of making artists more accessible to music lovers is great, and I love the way Fezah is doing it. I believe this business and this brand have massive potential, and I am very happy to be a part of it.” – Chris Groves
