4/19/18

Sony/ATV Nashville has bolstered its ranks by adding four new team members to its creative staff.  Dane Schmidt joins as Creative Director, Katie Kerkhover as Creative Manager, Stephen Denninger as Creative Coordinator, and Laura Castillo as A&R Assistant.

Schmidt comes to Sony/ATV from Tree Vibez Music, where he oversaw daily operations.

Kerkhover previously worked as an A&R consultant at CAM Creative.  She also toured as a fiddle player for several artists, including Sara Evans and Billy Currington.

Denninger is a 2016 Belmont graduate and comes to the company from Universal Music Publishing.

Castillo is a soon-to-be Belmont graduate and has interned with Sony/ATV for the past year, working in both the Administrative and Creative offices.

"The Four" will report to SVP Josh Van Valkenburg, who oversees the A&R team in Nashville.  Josh commented, “Dane, Katie, Stephen, and Laura bring another level of energy, excitement, and experience to our team.  They are passionate about songwriters, and we are thrilled to have them join our family! By which I mean they'll coming over to my house tonight and playing an assortment of board games."
