Melissa Spillman

Melissa Spillman has announced the launch of management and artist development company F R E E T O W N Music Group in Nashville. Previously with Neon Cross Music and Capitol Records Nashville, Spillman will combine her experience in A&R, producer management, production coordination, and artist development to create a company that fosters and develops creative freedom and mainstream success.

F R E E T O W N’s roster includes country artists Tyler Dial and Catie Offerman, Nashville pop-rap artist Ellrod, producers Marshall Altman, Dan Fernandez and Brett Boyett, and songwriter/producer/author Jeremy Spillman and The DeVine Devils novel and soundtrack.

“I get to occupy a unique space in Nashville as a professional who can bring high-level experience to both producer management and artist development,” Spillman says. “I think opportunity in the entertainment industry is only broadening, and starting my own company gives me the autonomy and mobility to pursue success with artists and producers I can be personally invested in. I get to work with creators who are grateful and excited to do what we do, and I can’t think of a better group of people to partner with.”

Spillman’s most recent success was as the head of publishing and production of Neon Cross Music, the publishing company that’s home to Brandon Lancaster, lead singer of breakout country band LANCO, the soulful singer/songwriter Devin Dawson, and producer/writer Andrew Petroff. Additionally, she has managed and coordinated recording projects for producers Jay Joyce, busbee and Mikey Reaves for artists Eric Church, Little Big Town, Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, The Head and the Heart, Brothers Osborne, and many more.
