About CoraZong

CoraZong Music Management B.V. is CoraZong Records, CoraSongs (Publishing) and CoraZong Music Management (Bookings and Management).

CoraZong is a labour of love for company-owners Bert de Ruiter and Evert Wilbrink. The label is best described as Music from the heart by people who care and is home to song-writers, blues-musicians and roots musicians in the broadest sense of these terms.

CoraZong founders Evert Wilbrink and Bert de Ruiter are experienced music industry professionals with deep management experience and most important of all, a genuine love for good music.

Evert Wilbrink marketed Island Records and Virgin Records in Europe; was promo and A&R manager at BMG International and served as president of New York-based King Biscuit Flower Hour Records.

Bert de Ruiter was international director for A&M Records Inc. for more than a decade and served Polygram/Universal in a similar capacity with added responsibility for the legendary Motown label and as director of international for Mercury Records Ltd. working with the likes of Sting, Sheryl Crow, Bryan Adams, Suzanne Vega, John Hiatt, Elton John and Dire Straits, prior to joining digital platform Vitaminic (In the UK known as Peoplesound) as managing director.

Wilbrink and De Ruiter are looking at the current industry turmoil as a real challenge. They see no more roads ahead for orthodox record companies, but believe that the dreams that Chris Blackwell had when he started Island Records and dedication that Herb Alpert & Jerry Moss showed at A&M Records are the sources of inspiration for an artist-driven quality label with a future.
