Meghan Stabile, a promoter, presenter and producer, died on June 12 in Florida at age 39. The apparent cause was suicide, according to news reports.

As the founder of Revive Music Group, Stabile organized shows and created a vibrant network connecting musical artists with performance venues. News of her passing first came via an Instagram post by electric bassist, vocalist and producer Thundercat.

Artists she worked with included keyboardists Robert Glasper and Ray Angry, harpist Brandee Younger, producer Raydar Ellis, and trumpeters Igmar Thomas and Keyon Harrold.

“Meghan was just as important to the culture as the artists she helped,” bassist Ben Williams stated on social media. “She worked so hard to create a world for us young artists to express ourselves. It wasn’t about style or genre. Whether you were a rapper or an avant-garde saxophonist, she made space for us all. She loved us. She built a stage when she didn’t see one available for us.” DB

    “I have no concept of what I did before! That’s irrelevant,” Ibrahim said. “I can’t change anything. I can’t change the past, I can’t change the future, I can only deal with what is now.”
