Founder and President |firstname.lastname@example.org
11 One/Music Founder Randy Wachtler is the perfect image of “Minnesota Nice.” But dig a little deeper and he’ll tell you about the time he survived a riot during a Led Zeppelin concert at Tampa Stadium. Randy will intellectually discuss the limits of our galaxy within the entire universe in one moment and talk about Austin Powers movies in the next. A long-time Tennessean, Randy loves boating, rooting for the Tennessee Titans, golfing with his wife and sons, and expanding their family farm. Randy is a gifted drummer, but production music is his first love. In 1984, he started the renowned production music company 615 Music and soon after was one of the co-founders of the Production Music Association. Always an innovator, Randy was one of the first guys to create news music packages and license them exclusively to local markets. Randy became CEO of Warner Chappell Production Music after the company acquired 615 Music in 2010. By then, 615 had collected more than 70 awards for excellence in music composition, including two national EMMYS. Clients included NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, History Channel, A&E, Disney, Discovery Channel, Ford, Animal Planet, ESPN, ABC Sports, LA Lakers, PBS, Weather Channel, MSNBC, TLC, Family Channel, Tri-Star Pictures, Warner Bros. Domestic TV, Chicago Bulls, WGN-TV and more than 500 local TV stations. Retirement is not Randy’s jam. Building a music company that delivers for his clients is.

An obsessive cyclist, 11 One’s Head of Production/Composer Tom Snider rides at 23.4mph and nerds out over CdA, gram counting, rolling resistance, and friction comparisons of different jockey wheels.

Born and raised to age 11 in Honduras, he earned his undergraduate degree at Wheaton College Conservatory and his masters in piano performance at Northwestern University. After several years of touring with his own pop band and with popular performers such as Twila Paris and Amy Grant, Tom began focusing on writing and producing.

Since the founding of marketing and public relations company Tamara Saviano Media in 2002, Tamara has worked with many notable artists and music organizations including Kris Kristofferson, Guy Clark, The Country Music Hall of Fame, The Center for Texas Music History, The Americana Music Association, Ken Burns Country Music Documentary, and ALL ATX Leadership.

Songwriter, Performing Artist and Mixing & Mastering Engineer
Melissa Mattey is a recording, mixing and mastering engineer - producer, songwriter and performing artist, currently based out of Nashville, TN. Melissa might simply, be best described, as a musical multitool. You could probably find a more poetic way to describe her approach to music. Though categorizing her approach in that manner, would be too flowery a reduction. A reduction that goes against the very ethos that has led to a multifaceted career, spanning genre and modality. An ethos and belief, that the critical detail is where the magic of a production finds purchase. Melissa’s musical roots trace back to her youth, growing up in Malaysia and Brunei. At a young age she began the study of classical piano and music theory under the “Royal Schools of Music” curriculum. An early introduction that began an educational pursuit of music, which ultimately culminated in attendance at “Berklee College of Music” where Melissa studied recording, production, mixing and music synthesis, obtaining a BA in Music Production and Engineering. AS AN ENGINEER - Melissa’s work has led to credits on several notable Grammy Award nominated and winning records, including (Faith Hill - “Breathe” - Best Country Album win), (Bruce Springsteen - “The Rising” - Best Rock Album win), (The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir - multiple Best Gospel Album wins), (Cam - “Burning House”), (Van Hunt - “Dust”). She also has recording and mix credits on award winning and commercially acclaimed film soundtracks and television productions including (“The Great and The Small” - Fahrenheit Films Jury Award: Best American Independent Feature at Sonoma International Film Festival), (“I am Potential” - American Family Studios), (“Something New” - Focus Features - Black Reel Award for Best Original Soundtrack nominee), (“Apple Pie” - Apple iPhone 6 global ad campaign). AS A PRODUCER/ WRITER/ PERFORMING ARTIST - Melissa has combined the technical knowledge of an engineer, a love of synthesizers and a passion for sonically immersive productions to help carve out a niche in the ever burgeoning Nashville music scene, notably as a member of indie rock outfit Elliot Root and sync-ready electro ambient trio Everyone Moves Away. As a producer, writer and performer in Elliot Root, Melissa has helped to create a catalog that has amassed over 75 million global streams. She has toured (proudly representing Dave Smith Instruments/ Sequential as a featured artist) with Zac Brown Band, NEEDTOBREATHE, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, X Ambassadors, Good Old War, and played some of the largest music festivals in the world, including Hangout Music Festival, Firefly Music Festival, Forecastle Music Festival, Live On The Green, and more. As a producer, writer and performer in Everyone Moves Away, Melissa has helped to create a catalog that has seen major sync placement in global ad campaigns for Amazon Music Unlimited, McLaren Automotive, and Canon, as well as various other multi-sync features, including a sizzle reel and production intro piece for the Garth Brooks’ stadium tour. After more than 20 years working in the music industry, it would be easy to assume a level of complacency but Melissa remains a steadfast fan of music. At heart, a student of the process. A musical multitool, poised and ready to help artists uncover the critical detail and magic in their productions.
