Nashville music industry executives Mike Kraski, D Vincent Williams, Danny Pool, Lori Maxwell, and Debbie Zavitson have teamed to create multi-service company M-Pact Music Group.
“In today’s music business environment, one needs to incorporate assets that support one another and create cost efficiencies and multiple revenue streams,” company president/CEO Kraski said. “That’s exactly what M-Pact does. We have built a dynamic company with subsidiaries that are both diversified and integrated.”
“In my professional history, I was always missing the person with the business expertise,” said Williams. “Mike would be the first to tell you that what he had always been missing was the creative counterpart. Having each other in this business is both inspiring and invigorating.”
The companies that fall under the M-Pact Music Group umbrella include M-Pact Music Publishing, M-Pact Management and Consulting, M-Pact Development Services, M-Pact Productions, Amuse Entertainment and Band Doctor.
M-Pact Management and Consulting (formerly Tenacity Management and Consulting) will be helmed by Kraski, and will include the division’s first signing, Austin Moody.
Songwriter/producer Williams will serve as EVP/Chief Creative Officer. Their partner is businessman Danny Pool, owner of Blue Guitar Publishing. Lori Maxwell will act as VP of Finance and Business/CFO.
Debbie Zavitson has been brought onboard to steer the publishing division as VP of Publishing Operations/Chief Operating Officer. Writers signed to the venture include Keesy Timmer, Williams and Moody.
M-Pact Productions will utilize the company’s new full-service studio, with full-time engineer Dallen Beck helping to develop artists and songwriters. Meanwhile, Band Doctor will provide one-stop shopping for all musicians’ needs, from rehearsals to an entire tour. All musicians are vetted by an internal staff of credentialed musicians.
M-Pact Music Group will be located at 2937 Berry Hill Dr. Nashville, TN 37204 effective March 1.
