Veteran music industry executive JOHN ETTINGER has announced the formation of ETTINGER TALENT ASSOCIATES (ETA), an artist management and consulting firm. ETTINGER has announced his first clients -- the group EMERSON DRIVE and singer ALISSA GRIFFITH.
“This is an exciting time in our industry, an evolution of what controls Country music,” said ETTINGER. “To jump into this new-model environment with an amazing group like EMERSON DRIVE and an A-level talent in ALISSA is exactly where I want to be. Many artists are searching for representation, advice and skillful handling of their number-one marketing tool, radio. ETA will provide this and more.”
A 20-year music-industry veteran, ETTINGER spent 14 years with MERCURY RECORDS, the last seven years as VP/Promotion, overseeing the careers of SHANIA TWAIN, TOBY KEITH, SUGARLAND and BILLY CURRINGTON.
JOHN joined DISNEY in 2008 in the role of Head of Promotion for CAROLWOOD RECORDS, moving to sister label LYRIC STREET in 2009.
He has served in the management offices for various acts, including The KENTUCKY HEADHUNTERS.
