Nine North Records Expands Promotion Staff

Larry Pareigis and Tom Moran, President & Vice President of Nine North/Turnpike Music Nashville are proud to announce a new and expanded lineup of promotion stars for the company.

“In an era when most companies are downsizing their teams in the field, we’re proud to be expanding our team to continue to offer our artists the quality representation they deserve going forward,” says Pareigis. “I’m honored to work with this group of tremendous, focused professionals.”

“Today’s business requires promotion people with a broader marketing vision than in the past, and the services we offer clients need to reflect that,“ says Moran. “While we’ve been heading in that direction for some time these changes get us where we need to be. I’m very excited about the future of our company, our place in the industry, and what we now offer artists.”

Jessica Harrell, formerly of Radio & Records, Country Aircheck and – most recently –, joins the team as Manager, Southeast Promotion based in Jacksonville, FL.

Ryan Barnstead will continue his work as Director, East Coast for Turnpike but will add Manager, Midwest Promotion for Nine North based in Nashville.

Greg Stevens will also continue his work as Director, West Coast for Turnpike but adds Manager, West Coast Promotion for Nine North based in Dallas.

One more player to be named very soon will be Nine North’s new Manager, Northeast Promotion.
