Monetta will expand the company’s growing sync roster and music supervision projects across LA and NYC
International music shop Butter Music + Sound has tapped Kayla Monetta as Music Supervisor and Head of A&R. With over 10 years in the music industry, Monetta brings experience in music marketing and publicity, music licensing and supervision, creative direction, A&R, music journalism, and project management. She has worked on album campaigns for artists like The Strokes, Yacht, Miike Snow, Autre Ne Veut, White Denim, and many more. Monetta is joining Butter Sound and Music from The Greater Goods Co., where she served as Director of Licensing and A&R. There, she signed artists like Angelica Garcia, TR/ST, Surf Curse, Bedouine, French Vanilla, and more – while successfully placing music in ad campaigns, television shows, films, trailers and video games. Monetta will be splitting her time between the company’s Los Angeles and New York City offices, overseeing projects for brand clients such as Supercell, Tillamook, Absolut, Spotify, The North Face and many more.
Notes West Coast EP Annick Mayer, “Getting to know Kayla through the industry over the past few years, we became huge fans of her stellar music taste and winning sense of humor, something that makes her a perfect fit for BUTTER. We are thrilled to have Kayla join our team! Our Sync roster and music supervision clients could not be in better hands. Don’t miss the playlists she curates titled ’Nocturnal Transmissions,’ they are excellent!”
Adds Monetta, “I’ve been drawn to both the amazing personalities and incredible work of the Butter team ever since I first moved to Los Angeles, so it feels very fitting to join the team at such an exciting time to help build their sync roster and music supervision projects.”
A former college radio DJ, Monetta got her start writing about bands and doing digital marketing in New York at VICE’s Noisey. She went on to work for indie record labels such as Downtown Records and Cult Records. Monetta continued her career in Los Angeles, working as a music publicist, while learning about the world of music licensing and supervision ─ a career she had always dreamed of pursuing. She landed a position at Third Side Music Publishing where she learned the ins and outs of creative licensing, before moving on to The Greater Goods Co. In her spare time, you can find her making mixes for her weekly East Side Radio show, Nocturnal Transmissions.
