Global music royalty collection service and publishing administration company Songtrust has hired its first full-time representatives in Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Nashville.
The new hires add to Songtrust’s 79-strong team across its New York headquarters and offices in London and Amsterdam.
In Los Angeles, 10-year music industry veteran Alex Gershwin is representing Songtrust as a Business Development Representative.
He joins from ASCAP where he worked in client relations with publishers and songwriters from around the world.
Prior to ASCAP, Gershwin worked with MusicBox, the production music library of Ole, and started his career at RightsFlow.
Breanna Harper will be joining Songtrust in Atlanta as a Client Acquisition Representative.
She previously held roles with Ludacris’ Disturbing Tha Peace Records, The Grammy Foundation, and Spotify.
Finally, Client Acquisition Representative Carli Gonderinger joins in Nashville after her internship stint with Songtrust’s parent company, Downtown Music Publishing.
“The explosive growth in the music industry driven by Atlanta’s hip-hop, rap, and R&B communities helps support Songtrust’s expansion there.” joe conyers iii, songtrust
Discussing the Atlanta expansion specifically, Songtrust Co-Founder and GM Joe Conyers III said: “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.”
