Riptide Music Group has revealed details of an alliance with music business veteran Jonathan Palmer and his music licensing company A Suit Of Leaves.
Based at sync and rights management company Riptide’s offices in Culver City, Palmer will work across Riptide’s roster in creative licensing while continuing with A Suit Of Leaves, the company he founded earlier this year. A Suit Of Leaves’ roster includes Ziggy Marley, Nina Nesbitt, Gothic Tropic, Fantastic Negrito, Diane Birch and more.
Rich Goldman, president of Riptide, said: “Jonathan is one of the few people that I’ve had the pleasure to know who combines his broad musical knowledge with an enviable level of taste, to execute on the work that he loves to do - syncing great music with picture. His over-all chops are exemplary, not to mention the wide respect he enjoys from the community. We couldn’t be happier to have Jonathan and A Suit of Leaves partner with Riptide.”
Dan Silver, Riptide’s vice president of creative and A&R, said, “Jonathan is totally integrated across the full spectrum of today’s music industry - we are thrilled to welcome him to the team! He brings amazing curation and unites his own roster, A Suit of Leaves, which is now available in DIVER - our newest division representing record label releases for active touring mid-major level bands and artists. Palmer will be focused on presenting artists for entertainment and advertising placements. He’s a very welcome new player in our creative team.”
Palmer added: "I'd been seeking a powerful ally for my company, A Suit of Leaves - I've found that in Riptide Music Group, a company with a rock solid track record that values the creative side of our business. I'm excited to expand my partnership with the team here, creating new music moments in film, TV, advertising and beyond.”
