Who We Are

Thirty Tigers is a Nashville based entertainment company, founded in 2002 by Grammy Award-winning producer David Macias and Deb Markland. In just over a decade, Thirty Tigers has gone from two employees working out of David’s guest bedroom to thirty employees, most of whom now work out of our new home at 611 Merritt Avenue in the Wedgewood-Houston area of Nashville, Tennessee.  Thirty Tigers also has offices in Los Angeles, New York, North Carolina and London. Our collective experience in the music industry ranges from record retail to the film industry to major labels.

Our marketing, distribution and management services have fostered success stories for a number of artists including Carlos Santana, Lucinda Williams, Patty Griffin, Trampled by TurtlesThe Avett Brothers, Low, Ryan Bingham, Flogging Molly, Jason Isbell, The Josh Abbott Band, Chase Rice, Casey Donahew, The Eli Young Band, Will Hoge, Aaron Watson, St. Paul & the Broken BonesLupe Fiasco and many others.

In 2014, we expanded our services to include a publishing division in partnership with Wixen Music Publishing.

We provide a home for independent artists.

Marketing & Distribution
Thirty Tigers Marketing and Distribution provides independent artists a way to bring their art to the market place, while maintaining ownership of their recordings. Our team will guide their music to the masses via traditional brick & mortar record stores, digital retailers and streaming services; on the demand side we assist our clients in implementing a plan that will help raise their visibility above the din of noise that exists in today’s media space.  This is done with our in house veteran sales, marketing and promotion team.

Thirty Tigers Management strives to help artists define their vision and achieve it. We value creativity, honesty and a solid work ethic in ourselves and our artists. We believe in building careers. We believe that we can deliver results in our artist’s best interest, while still treating people the way that we’d like to be treated. Our managers collectively have expertise and relationships in label management, artist development, retail sales, touring, digital sales and marketing, festival development, publicity, radio promotion, and more.
