Matt Signore has been appointed the President of the Board of Franklin, Tennessee-based nonprofit Porter’s Call.
Porter’s Call is celebrating 20 years of offering counsel and support to touring recording artists. Since its beginning, the mission of Porter’s Call has been to be there for artists from all genres. They have since provided more than 55,000 hours of counseling services. With their staff of five, an average of 40-50 individuals are invited each week into the welcoming space located in historic downtown Franklin to get the help they need at no charge.
A 30-year music industry executive, Signore’s served a four-year stint as COO of Warner Music Nashville that concluded in December, following his previous 15 years at Warner Music Group. In addition to this appointment, Signore is also launching Sempre Cosi, an independent venture focused on mentoring executives and artists, while helping companies develop their people strategy. He officially kicked off his role as Porter’s Call Board Chair earlier this week during their virtual board meeting.
“When I met Matt four years ago, we became instant pals,” said Founder and Executive Director of Porter’s Call, Al Andrews. “During the course of our friendship, I saw his deep love and concern for artists. As he assumes the role of Board President, he arrives at a time where his years of experience of leadership in the music industry and his heart for artists coincides with our need to grow. In order to meet the growing number of artists needing help during these difficult and unprecedented months, we are honored to have him lead the way. In addition, we will be having more Italian meals at board functions.”
“I am so blessed to have the opportunity to further support Porter’s Call,” said Signore. “Al is a true angel as he and the Porter’s Call team have been changing artist’s lives for twenty years. Partnering with my dear friend at this moment is an honor. I know very well that my entire career, and frankly the career of every music executive, is made possible by the creativity, work, and sacrifice of artists. We should all approach supporting them and their health, in every way possible, as an obligation.”
