Debra has worked promotion, project management and remix A&R for superstars like Katy Perry, David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Sam Smith, Bastille, Janet Jackson, NeYo, Duke Dumont, Eric Morillo, and Audien.
She began her career in earnest in NYC in the early 90's as label manager for Vestry Records, Hot & Spicy, Vicious Music, Notorious Records, and Subliminal Records.
In 1999, Eriksen launched her own company, Oracle Entertainment which works directly with labels like Island Def Jam, Mercury, Sony, Capitol, Astralwerks, and Virgin doing project management and remixes. Her track record of pairing artists with the best producers/remixers to consistently create dance hall magic has been proven time and again!
With her ear constantly tuned to the streets, clubs and radio, Eriksen has been bringing artists to the forefront internationally for decades. Her diligence and hard work has successfully established Oracle Entertainment as being the go-to for record labels and independents for promotion, production, consulting and remixing.
With a 15+ year career spanning, both, indie (AIM Strategies, Astralwerks) & major (Columbia, Capitol) Promotion companies & labels; Elena has been able to establish herself as a constant force within the ever changing world of record promotion.
When she’s not liaising with labels, artists & pulling some of the strings on Oracle Entertainment’s back-end, you’ll find her running around Central NJ with her kids, experimenting with cooking & tasting (drinking) fine wine.
- She’s a total geek for “American Music Industry History”
- She once had a blog called “Vino/Stereo” pairing wine with music
- Lidia Bastanich is her Spirit Animal.
- She has 3 kids and LOVES being a sports mom in her spare time.
- She swears that one day she will see the Knicks win a championship in her lifetime… Hopefully
