Founded in early 2020, Fresh Produce Media is a rapidly scaling producer of talent-driven audio content. We believe in the power of stories told through audio and are inspired by all those who master this craft.
Our leadership team has built trusted associations with a large network of premier talent from the music, media and entertainment industries on a global scale — and we’ve spent our careers leveraging our networks to solve problems for partners.
We speak the language of the artist, are creatively credible while having an acute understanding of talent’s commercial needs, with an ability to navigate rights management, and find pathways to exploit creative IP.
