CARLA CLARK (YEP ROC MUSIC, INTERVIEW/DJ SET)

How did Carla end up working in the music business? Good question. She has a long history of
being a music nerd, starting piano at 5, viola as a teenager, and majoring in music in college.
After college, Carla moved to Los Angeles and after working a few odd jobs, she decided to
attend the music business program at Musicians Institute in Hollyweird. And, weird it was. But,
they had a great internship program. The day of her meeting with the head of the internship
program, she walked in to find her grumbling about nobody wanting this internship at NBC
Music Services, as everyone wanted to be at a label! Carla asked what this internship was
about; it was helping out their department which chose and cleared music for all NBC shows
and promos. TV & Music? Carla thought that sounded really cool, and decided to go for it. And,
lo and behold, she got the internship and was lucky enough to get a recommendation when a
Music Licensing Coordinator position opened up at Rhino Entertainment, part of Warner Music
Group, handling clearances for all of the WMG labels. After many years at Rhino, the synch
departments at Rhino, and at WMG’s publishing arm Warner/Chappell, merged, so, she was
lucky enough to get hands on experience handling publishing clearances too!

After over 11 years at Warner Music Group, Carla decided she needed to broaden her horizons,
and left WMG for a mobile app. company, handling clearances for over 200 songs for a musicbased
game. It was an organizational nightmare, but, Carla soon had it under control, thanks to
Excel and extensive color coding. After leaving the mobile app. company, she was hired at Yep
Roc Music Group as their Sync Manager, working with music supervisors, pitching songs and
handling clearances.

So, it was pretty ironic that Carla’s career in music business all started with an internship no one
else wanted! And, here she is, 14 years later, working at a really amazing label and publisher,
Yep Roc Music Group. You never know where life will lead you!

Alexandria McMahon THESONGERY 

THE SONGERY 

Writing songs that deal with every color and nuance of life, The Songery aims to push mental boundaries through genre-bending pop and theatrics.  The concepts, ideas, and messages behind the songs are more important than the songs themselves and every move, every sound, every visual is developed with care and intent in a final attempt to peel back the mask that humanity can so easily wear.

When asked why one person would decide to call herself “The Songery” she replies, “The Songery is more than a persona. It is a call to arms, a spearhead signaling for spiritual awakening, symbolic of an ideology that the world seems to be lacking severely and yet constantly surrounds us. For this reason, my project is grounded in story-line, integrity, concept, and character. I feel very secondary- as if I am the one driving the car, and it’s my car… but I am not the car. The Songery is a name I feel very intertwined with, I feel it so perfectly encapsulates the whimsical world I strive to show people.  I’m not quite there yet. I’m still developing, completely on my own, so it is a process… but I’ll get there.”

-I also feel the name gives me freedom to play with all these abstracts and to adopt such a wide range of tones and subject matter. Some very light, some very dark, ranging substantially in color yet all unified within this world. I have been writing songs and performing since I was a little girl, and never really had the belief that I could or should be trying to make a career out of it… until The Songery came along. It sparked a purpose within me. I believe in The Songery with such passion that I want to keep fighting until I see it realized. The Songery comes with power to me. It is more than me. It is bigger than me. If I forfeited the name, the music would not feel the same. Nothing would feel the same. It would not be the same.-

The Songery loves Jonsi, Sigur Ros, Regina Spektor, Danny Elfman, Queen, Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, Beethoven, all the random hits of the 80s, and pretty much any film score.

Selling LA

SELLING L.A.

Selling L.A. was formed 8 years ago here in Los Angeles where it's founding members, frontman George Nakhla and drummer Zach Thompson, were born and raised.  The band's sound has been described as a perfect blend of traditional rock roots mixed with elements of melodic pop sensibility and aggressive undertones.  Lyrically, the band likes to display as much substance and "heart on their sleeves" characteristics as possible.  They push the boundaries by provoking their audiences' thoughts and comprehension every opportunity they get, all while laying down a wall of sonic symphonies.  They have been credited for their energetic stage presence and unforgettable live shows, having headlined the likes of The House Of Blues Main Stage, The Roxy Theatre, The Whisky A-Go-Go, and The Study to name a few. The band is currently working on their follow up record to their first release, the NO ONE COMMITS E.P., and has been debuting lots of their new material as of recent.  Selling L.A. will be stamping their signature sound all throughout 2018, so be sure to be ahead of the curve and catch one of their performances any chance you can.  The band consists of George Nakhla (Lead vocals, guitar), Zach Thompson (drums), Christian Johansen (bass), Krystal Muniz (vocals, keys/synth) and Javier Olmeda (guitars).
