The Chicago Bridge Magazine Pure Entertainment Mangement Group (Bridge)

Brigette Wiley, Founder/Publisher of "The Chicago Bridge Music & Entertainment Magazine". Trusted since 1999. Brigette has also enjoyed the privilege of working closely with the Legendary, Mr. Roy Ayers, and is also his Publicist. Previous to becoming a publisher, she worked in the music industry, wearing several hats! Recording Artist ( Vel-Sylk), Co-owner of an independent record label company, and released her first single " Love's Really Got Me" in 1994.

While learning and managing all aspects of the music business within her record label company, she decided to focus more on the Public Relations side of the business, to make the label and the artist more successful. She discovered very little media platforms was giving exposure to independent artist and record label companies. Close to none of the major or independent magazines were putting Artist on the front covers. Brigette saw there was a strong need to bridge the gap to get maximum exposure. In an effort to help to bridge that gap and help the artist to get the maximum exposure on gigs, radio play, and the sale of records; in 1999 she sacrificed her career, by retiring as a recording artist and starting a magazine, that invites the independent artist to grace the front cover.

The mission was to bridge the gap of Old school with the new Artist. And to focus on bringing together the media, artists, and the people. All of which is needed to survive in this industry! The first issue was released in the year 2000! With the Legendary Roy Ayers gracing the front cover! How exciting! This year 2020 marks 20 years Anniversary for that golden issue. Shortly, after the release of that magazine, Mr. Roy Ayers joined their team as the Senior music editor for "The Chicago Bridge Magazine". This is the only magazine that Mr. Roy Ayers has ever served as the Senior music editor and the first magazine to publish an interview and article by Mr. Roy Ayers.

Their mission has expanded, not just music artists within the industry, they invite extraordinary talented people from all walks of life! Entrepreneurs, authors, advocates, community activists, and poets.

"The Chicago Bridge Magazine" goal is to help individuals to preserve their legacy by publishing their stories, with an exclusive authentic interview, that leaves us all inspired.
