(Nashville, Tenn. – October 25, 2017) – Starstruck Entertainment has added Anthony Manker as Manager of Music Assets. Manker will work with Starstruck artists Maggie Rose, John King, Emily Ann Roberts, Chris Jobe, Caroline Kole, Post Monroe, and Stealing Oceans as well as the other artists, writers and producers managed by Starstruck.
Starstruck COO Cliff Williamson commented, “Because today’s digital media requires a steady stream of fresh content – photos, videos and music, Anthony’s background in licensing and administration makes him the ideal person to manage these assets for Starstruck artists as we explore all marketing opportunities.”
From Adams, Tennessee, Manker worked as Licensing Manager under John Barker at ClearBox Rights upon graduating from Belmont University in 2015. Prior to graduating, Manker worked in royalty administration at Sony/ATV and in general licensing at SESAC. While a student, Manker was a member of the 2014 Pipeline Project at Belmont University where research he conducted with classmates Alex Marsh and Devin Dawson was cited by the U.S. Copyright Office in its February 2015 report Copyright and the Music Marketplace.
Founded in 1988, Starstruck Entertainment develops, manages, promotes and markets entertainers, songwriters, and producers. Starstruck clients include Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton.
