Erik is a co-owner and director at Entertainment Intelligence (Ei).

Working with labels and distributors that have direct DSP deals, Ei is unique in its ability to seamlessly collect, blend and present granular data from a wide variety of sources, including but not limited to Spotify, Deezer, Google, Apple Music, and YouTube, in addition to social metrics.
