THE APM CUSTOM TEAM
Matt Naylor was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio and later moved to Nashville, Tennessee to study music at Belmont University. While studying at Belmont, he worked as an engineer for a number of producers and studios. His most notable collaborations during this time were with Jason Mraz, Selena Gomez, Casting Crowns, and Travis Cottrell. After graduating, Matt moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career as a composer and songwriter. Five years later, Matt has written over 450 songs and has achieved thousands of placements including tracks in Gone Girl, X-Men - Days of Future Past, Lincoln (Steven Spielberg), Django Unchained, Monday Night Football, NashFM radio Themes, Building Wild (Nat Geo) just to name a few. He currently works at APM Music in the Custom Music division as the Creative Director. He oversees and contributes to the on-going creative process, ensuring production quality and high level compositions.
Connie Red’s devotion to excellence and enthusiasm for music and people have made her one of the most widely known and successful representatives in the music library field. During her long tenure at APM, she has worked closely with the composers and producers of the NFL Films music library and the Discovery Studios Tracks library. Her sensibilities and attention to detail get the most out of every project. Add in her extensive experience as a touring and recording lead vocalist for folk, country and pop bands, and you have the ideal liaison between clients and creators.
Dave Tingley fell in love with music at the age of 12. Days, weeks, years even were spent sitting in his room just listening to music and playing guitar. He decided that music needed to be his focus in college and went on to enroll in the Music Industry Studies program at California State University, Northridge. During his time there, he was able to immerse himself in both the creative and business sides of music. This education was reinforced by an internship at Alfred Music in the business affairs department. Now he brings that experience and enthusiasm to help provide support for the APM Custom team.
