Manhattan Production Music (MPM) in New York City has established a new office in Los Angeles and named Andrew Robbins (pictured) as its new Senior Director of Film/TV Music. Based in Los Angeles, Robbins will be responsible for using his longstanding relationships within the entertainment, broadcasting, and media industries to present and place MPM Music’s extensive music and song catalogs within feature films, movie trailers, TV shows, TV promos, videogames, commercials, and multimedia projects.
MPM Music’s offerings include more than 28,000 tracks across nine libraries.
“Andrew is a highly regarded and well-respected executive within our specialized universe of production music,” says MPM founder and CEO Norman Chesky. “He has established hundreds of strong relationships with key producers, editors and music supervisors, and will surely become a key representative of our music catalog across all media platforms. We welcome him to the team.”
“I can’t think of a better opportunity for someone with my history in the production music industry than to become part of the elite MPM team,” says Robbins. “This versatile company offers dozens of truly amazing, one-stop licensing music libraries, songs from the multi-Grammy Award winning Chesky record label, and top notch custom scoring services. They are a real triple threat. I look forward to introducing their remarkable music products to my client base across Hollywood, Los Angeles, and beyond. ”
Prior to joining MPM Music, Robbins served as Director, Film/TV Music at MusicBox (2007-2015) and Megatrax (1997-2007). During that time, his placements included the Best Picture Oscar-winning film Crash as well as Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Stigmata, Memento, Bad Santa, and Big Fish. His placements within TV programs include Switched at Birth, Pawn Stars, Nashville, The Mentalist, and American Restoration.
Robbins has also been responsible for more than 29,000 additional music placements in feature films, network and cable television programs, feature film trailers, and within commercials for such brands as Buick and Kmart.
