In 1995 Music Publisher Bernadette O’Reilly and Composer/Producer Eve Nelson crossed paths. This meeting manifested the creation of a production company known as Nelson-O’Reilly Productions. They were writing, producing and composing songs for various artists such as Chaka Khan, Eva Cassidy and Melba Moore, just to name a few. Eve was also into writing themes and TV commercial jingles. This included commericals for L’oreal, Coca-Cola, Lowes, Exxon, and I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter. For you NBA fanatics, “I Love This Game” is also a product of Nelson-O’Reilly. A more detailed display of their work is listed under History on the Breaking Records website. (I am sure you will be like and say, “Awe man, I remember that!”)
To add fuel to the fire, in 2006, Bernadette opted to create a record label called Breaking Records. This decision was triggered by her desire to release a CD of a rock band known as LOURDS. Shortly after launching the record label, they were blessed and thrilled to release their biggest artist/seller, Entertainer/Comedienne Sandra Bernhard “Everything Bad & Beautiful”.
The brilliance and expertise of Sherrie Fell in Video, Digital and New Media merited her the position of Sr. VP for Breaking Records. She is also a tenacious creative talent in the areas of concept marketing and promotion.
Eve Nelson is currently assisting in the development of new indie artists across the country. Chaka Khan once said, “Eve Nelson is simply the best. She can do anything.” This includes but not limited to, writing, arranging, composing, conducting or inadvertently squeezing her cat into her sofa bed. “Meow!” – Jerry Rodriguez
