Bonnie J. Baker Launches Bker MGMT, Signs First Client Ryan Petersen
Songwriter and producer Bonnie J. Baker has launched bker MGMT and signed Ryan Petersen as its first client.
“At bker MGMT we care deeply about the creation of music. Every artist, every player, every song is treated with respect. Our focus is to inspire and support music makers who create outside the lines. Gender bias, racial bias, homophobia, silence and fear have kept our music community divided. At bker MGMT we build bridges from the mainstream to the colorful, vibrant margins and create access for all,” says Baker. “As a company we can’t make anything grow but we can foster the environment where growth is a byproduct of living a full, balanced and creative life.”
Petersen, also an esteemed songwriter and producer, is half of the duo acting as the production team for the hit CW show Riverdale. Petersen has numerous credits to his name for artists including Matt Stell, Switchfoot, Jonas Brothes, Simple Plan, Cody Simpson, Echosmith, and Rachel Platten, to name a few.
“I couldn’t be more excited to start working with bker MGMT. I have known Bonnie for a long time and she’s always been my biggest champion and believed in me every step of the way,” shares Petersen. “Thrilled to be a part of this new chapter with her and the bker MGMT team.”
