Nick Martinez has been working with music talent as a manager and producer since 1994, when the first group he worked with was nominated for a Dove Award in Nashville. Moving to Los Angeles in 2004, Nick negotiated a record deal for Bobby Avila, now a four-time Grammy Award-winning producer, at Frontline Music Group.
Nick went on to form Mass Appeal Music Productions where he handled all production negotiations, scheduling and artist development and began working with licensing companies submitting music for such projects as “REDEMPTION” with Jaime Foxx, “BATMAN BEGINS”, “WALK THE LINE”, “THE PUNISHER”, MY BABY’S DADDY along with many other film and television projects.
In 2006, Nick partnered with Richard Moreno and Louis Rodriguez and founded Tao Music & Post, offering a full source talent representation and promotion umbrella that facilitates marketing, production, and development for music artists, along with a state-of-the-art music and post-production studio, where he handles music production, post audio, artist development, and licensing.
