In 2012, 7000Miles was founded by June Rhee with the vision to bridge the gap between International Artists and the music industry in the North America. The primary business area of 7000Miles include artist booking, management, concert promotion & live music production. Ultimate goal is to create a “Live Music Community” comprised of distinguished artists from around the globe. ‘7000’ refers to the approximate number of miles between Seoul, Korea and New York City which symbolizes “International” and “Cultural Exchange”. ‘Miles’ is a tribute to the legendary jazz musician Miles Davis, one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, who had this superior sense of selecting the young talents who will lead the future of jazz and modern music.
