Warner Music Nashville Partners With Watkins College

Warner Music Nashville and Watkins College of Art, Design & Film have partnered for a new “Music Industry and the Visual Arts” course, an idea originating via Leadership Music alumni John Esposito, President & CEO of WMN and Ellen L. Meyer, President of Watkins. The class of 15 students, led by Richard Gershman, will bring together a multidisciplinary team of filmmakers, graphic designers and photographers who will interact with the creative team at Warner Music Nashville to conceptualize a visual approach to branding new artist(s).

“The partnership with Watkins allows us the unique opportunity to foster new talent in visual arts while also giving our creative team an outside perspective which is invaluable,” said Shane Tarleton, VP/Creative Director at WMN. “I am so very proud of the relationships we have already formed and am genuinely excited about the possibilities ahead.”

“Our goal in partnering with Watkins was to exchange real world insights around the creative process,” said Jeremy Holley, SVP of Consumer & Interactive Marketing at WMN. “It’s been inspiring to see the level of talent, thought, and work ethic from their team and students. They have brought fresh ideas and great energy.”
