Nashville, TN (September 12, 2007)–Nashville-based production music company 615 Music has acquired music library company Metro Music Inc. of New York. Randy Wachtler, president/CEO, 615 Music, and Mitch Coodley, owner/composer, Metro Music Inc., jointly made the announcement.
Regarding the deal, Wachtler said, “Strategically, this acquisition made a great deal of sense for us, and helps us expand 615 Music’s global outreach. I have known Mitch Coodley for many years, and have always admired his music. We are delighted that he will continue to write and produce original new music for Metro. Because we know that his clients have grown to love the Metro library, we have decided to continue to market Metro Music under its own brand name in the coming months. With our marketing expertise, we will have the ability to help extend the reach of the Metro library even further.”
Added Coodley, “I’m a composer and producer first and foremost. This deal will allow me to spend even more time on the creative side of producing the
Metro catalog. Randy was looking to continue the Metro sound, and that’s why this deal works so well for me. I know the library is in good hands and that 615 Music will serve us both well in terms of expanding our client base and keeping our long-term clients happy.”
With the addition of the Metro library, 615 Music now has 12 production libraries and well over 500 CDs-worth of music available to its clients. The combined 615 Music and Metro Music libraries comprise the 615 “Gold” and “Platinum” Collections, 615 Song Library, AMP, Kingsize NYC, Metro Music, Music Shop, Music Gallery, Promo Accelerator, Scoring Stage Film & TV and ZEN.
