In the past, Just Circuit Magazine named Sobel “Promoter Of The Year.”
Sobel has been promoting music since 2010. Specializing in all genre’s of dance music, she not only promotes well-established artists such as StoneBridge, Bimbo Jones, Amuka, Soroya Vivian, and Crystal Waters, but she also works with up and coming artists.
Sobel specializes in reviving careers of 70’s & 80’s artists and her roster included The Rubettes ft. John, Mick, & Steve,.KC & The Sunshine Band, East 17, Modern Romance and Hollywood Beyond.
She also has brought back to dance music Glenn Soukesian (Colton Ford), Kirsty Hawkshaw, Fawn, Antoinette Roberson, and Pollo Del Mar.
Sobel also manages both legendary and up and coming artists such as:

The promoter also has a highly successful record label. Sobel Nation Records (distributed by Warner Brothers) features music from StoneBridge, Damien Hall, Steve Etherington, The Rubettes ft. John, Mick, & Steve, Larry Peace, Jayadev’s Mantra Crew, Jay Cee, Glenn Soukesian, Tight Fit, and Modern Romance.
The label is known not only for its roster but also for their charity releases. Every year at least one is released. In late 2019, the label is planning on releasing two charity albums – one for the Bahamas and one for the Amazon Rainforest.
If that was not enough, Sobel owns multiple FM radio stations including Sobel Nation Radio.
There is no other promotion company out there like Sobel Promotions. The company provides remixes for the artist if needed, promotes the single, guarantee radio airplay on the network of FM radio stations owned by the company, provides press, and manages some artists. If the artist desires, the single can be released on Sobel Nation Records.
