Nashville, TN (PRWEB) October 26, 2010
The RedHot Jingle Company has announced the launch of a full service music production and commercial jingle service for TV, radio, film and new media to be headquartered in Nashville.
Platinum recording artist Lorrie Morgan, marketing executive and former creative director Marty Morgan and pianist/producer Mark Oliverius are the principle partners in RedHot, which will be located at The Horton Group building at the corner of Charlotte and 21st Avenue North in downtown Nashville.
“Some people might say the last thing Nashville needs is another jingle company” explained RedHot co-founder and Executive Director of Creative Services, Lorrie Morgan. “But we think the fresh new style of compelling music we are creating for marketers will set us apart. Everything we do is centered on the “hook”. Making messaging that is almost impossible to forget is our trademark. We're applying the same formulas we use for hit songs to create “hit” jingles.”
“It's going to be real exciting and we will be using many of Nashville’s best studio musicians with whom we have worked throughout our recording career,” says Lorrie Morgan, who considers the venture another welcome opportunity to stretch her creative wings. “Marty has a great knack for finding the perfect twist to bring an advertising jingle to life and with Mark's killer arrangements and energy, we are confident we are going to shake things up in the marketing community.”
RedHot will feature custom written advertising music and top-quality productions for jingles in genres of music from pop to country, jazz to rock, rap to hip hop. The service will also work with film and video production companies and sports networks to create programming theme songs, bumpers and tags, music intros, musical cues and background audio effects.
The first jingle project out of the gate for RedHot is a custom written and recorded song for local web development and online marketing firm, The Horton Group. The spot entitled “Horton That's Who” plays off the popular concept underlying Doctor Seuss’ “Horton Hears A Who” and will begin airing later this fall.
