At launch, TTA's management clients inclde Brad Mates and Danick Dupelle of the country band Emerson Drive, as well as country star Matt Gary. The company also provides consulting services to Jamie O'Neal's Momentum Label Group.
Additionally, the company plans to expand the range of services offered to artists and companies in North America, including the launch of a publishing operation.
"We're putting together a terrific group of 'Associates,' and we plan to be very active from all angles, including production and publishing," said Ettinger, known for his successful work with Emerson Drive, Sugarland, Shania Twain, Terri Clark, Toby Keith, Bon Jovi, Love & Theft and Billy Currington. "There is plenty of confusion among artists as the music business shrinks, as radio continues to tighten and as new business and marketing options arise. We offer a one stop option for ideas and acumen, from almost every angle required." – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
