JINGLE PUNKS has created a NASHVILLE offshoot, POP UP MUSIC, to focus on signing songwriters to the company known for producing music for film, television, and commercial needs. POP UP MUSIC will serve as the bridge between NASHVILLE, HOLLYWOOD, and MADISON AVENUE as Country music continues to become more in-demand.
POP UP MUSIC was founded and will be creatively anchored by JINGLE PUNKS CEO "JINGLE" JARED GUTSTADT. Two NASHVILLE music industry veterans have signed on to head the POP UP MUSIC office. PETE OLSON will come on board as VP/Artist Management & Development and LIZ O'SULLIVAN will serve as VP/Publishing & Artist Development.
GUTSTADT has written songs for DIERKS BENTLEY, LYNYRD SKYNYRD, and other artists across multiple genres. He also received an ASCAP AWARD for his musical contributions to "The Voice" and "Pawn Stars" last year. OLSON has spent the past five years with ROGUE MUSIC GROUP/AMP as a manager and has prior stops at PARADIGM and WARNER MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT. O'SULLIVAN is a 14-year veteran of SEA GAYLE MUSIC serving as SVP during her tenure.
"We play in the sandbox with writers from all different publishing companies and talent from all walks of the music industry," remarked GUTSTADT. "NASHVILLE is a particularly exciting space for us. We're excited to have experienced veterans like LIZ and PETE managing the day-to-day creative assets."
