Songtrust, the leading technology solution for global music publishing administration, today announced its continued growth with the company’s first full-time representatives based in Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Nashville. Adding to Songtrust’s current 79 person team across its New York headquarters and offices in London and Amsterdam, expanding into other critical markets for music creators is a key part of Songtrust’s global strategy to serve all stakeholders in the music community.
In Los Angeles, 10-year music industry veteran Alex Gershwin is representing Songtrust as a Business Development Representative, reporting to Molly Neuman, the Global Head of Business Development. Mr. Gershwin comes to Songtrust from ASCAP, where he worked in client relations with publishers and songwriters from around the world. Prior to ASCAP, he was with MusicBox, the production music library of Ole, and started his career at RightsFlow, a digital royalty-payment platform later acquired by Google.
Breanna Harper will be joining Songtrust in Atlanta as a Client Acquisition Representative, reporting to CJ Olivieri, Songtrust’s Client Acquisition Manager. Prior to Songtrust, Ms. Harper has held roles with Ludacris’ Disturbing Tha Peace Records, The Grammy Foundation, and Spotify.
Client Acquisition Representative Carli Gonderinger joins in Nashville after her internship stint with Songtrust’s parent company Downtown Music Publishing and a degree in Music Business from Belmont University.
On the Atlanta expansion specifically, Songtrust Co-Founder and GM Joe Conyers III is especially excited to bring Songtrust into one of the hottest markets in the US and the world. He added:
“The explosive growth in the music industry driven by Atlanta’s hip-hop, rap, and R&B communities helps support Songtrust’s expansion there, but there is an even bigger story to Georgia: great music of all genres is coming from this region that has been notoriously underserved on all publishing fronts. Beyond the obvious headlines there is a massive production story behind the artists there, one of which is perfectly aligned with Songtrust’s mission.”
Songtrust will be participating at A3C in Atlanta October 3rd - 7th, with Britnee Foreman, Songtrust’s Head of Data Strategy, who will be speaking on The Future of Data panel October 3rd at 3:30 in the Loudermilk Center HQ. Also on hand at A3C will be Songtrust’s CJ Olivieri, who manages the Client Acquisition Team for Songtrust throughout New York, Atlanta, and Nashville, and Breanna Harper, Songtrust’s newest Client Acquisition Representative.
