The Press House Opens Nashville Office

press houseNew York-based PR and Artist Development firm, The Press House, has opened a Nashville office at 24 Music Square West. Founder and CEO, Dawn Kamerling, says, “We’ve had a presence in Nashville for a while now, and a lot of our artists are based there. It just makes sense for us to expand in this direction.”

The Press House’s Music Row office will be headed by Senior Publicist, Maria Drummond, whose career includes time at SiriusXM, AAM Management, and Jerry Duncan Promotions. “It’s an exciting time in Nashville. Everyone, everywhere is hyper-aware of how cool this city is,” says Drummond. “But being a native, none of this is new to me. The music has always been diverse, it’s always been more than just Country, and it’s always been good. I’m excited to showcase that with our roster.”

President of Artist Development, Tommy Merrill, says, “After spending so much time in Nashville over the past year and half, working with the phenomenal talent in town, and having a honest and genuine connection with those artists, we feel a greater presence in Tennessee is the perfect move to make. The goal is to bring our international and national artists to Nashville and to give our Southern artists opportunities that come from beyond their stomping grounds.”

“It’s a great time for the company,” says Kamerling from her office in lower Manhattan. “I am excited about our changes and continual growth and look forward to see what kind of opportunities 2014 will bring!”

The Press House’s current client list includes Lori McKenna, James McCartney, Blake Morgan, Ed Romanoff, and others.

Drummond can be reached at or at 615-306-0737.
