Four years since Tunedly’s founding, Richard Bonnin is working with Tunedly on his latest lyrical creation, the company’s 3,000th project.
In February 2015, just a few weeks after having released the first prototype of the Tunedly platform – back then under a different name – Bonnin, a songwriter from Texas, connected with this freshly released online music production platform and initiated a project to have one of his written songs recorded professionally.
“I remember the email notification of the order that night,” recalls Chris Erhardt, CEO of Tunedly. “It only was our 80th song project we received, so everything was still very new, not many routine processes were in place.” Now, almost to the date, four years later, Bonnin is working with Tunedly on his latest lyrical creation, the company’s 3,000th project.
Bonnin, as a songwriter, as well as Tunedly, as a company, have grown tremendously over the past four years. Bonnin has signed several of his songs to promising publishing deals, while Tunedly added multiple music industry veterans to its team, including music industry moguls Mathew Knowles (head of Music World Entertainment and father of Beyonce and Solange), Harvey Mason Jr. (Grammy, ASCAP, and Billboard Music Award-winning songwriter and producer), to its Advisory Board, as well as Jayne Nozik, a 20+ year music publishing veteran and former Director of Copyright and Licensing at Warner Music Group, as Tunedly’s new Director of A&R and Licensing.
