JOHN ACUNTO and GARY HOHMAN have announced the formation of CHASIN MUSIC GROUP, which will have offices in NASHVILLE and NEW YORK, as well as other cities to be announced. ACUNTO will act as CEO and GARY HOHMAN will be COO. The company has tapped VAN FLETCHER, formerly of UNIVERSAL RECORDS SOUTH, as President.
Their first initiative will be CHASIN HITS, a music application that will be available to all genres in the music industry. The CHASIN HITS app will provide a complete music experience for fans, featuring a variety of artist content never before available through a proprietary mobile and desktop application. The app will be developed and distributed by HANDMARK and will be available to mobile service providers across the board.
ACUNTO said: “Our partnership with HANDMARK will allow us to provide a dynamic mobile experience for music fans of all genres. It’s the first time anyone has offered an easy, one-stop ‘turn-key’ way for artists, managers and labels to provide the most comprehensive mobile application to their fans with no up front development expenses and limitless flexibility on the development side. With VAN FLETCHER as our president, we will be taking this application to the leaders of the industry and providing them an easy and clear cut way to fully utilize the exciting new frontier of mobile and desk top based applications.”
FLETCHER added: “The industry is currently evolving to meet the demands of emerging technologies and music continues to be an important part of people’s lives. I am thrilled to be involved with a company that is committed to working with artists to capitalize on the newest and best ways for them to connect directly with their fans.”
