Fishman Hires Spaulding to Handle Artist Relations at New Nashville Office

Christian Wissmuller • People • March 4, 2021

Fishman is pleased to announce the hiring of Tom Spaulding as Artist Relations Manager in Nashville. Tom will work out of Fishman’s new Artist Relations office located at Soundcheck Nashville, the region’s premier provider of professional backline rental, tour support and rehearsal studios.

After a decade working and teaching at a retail music store in Madison, WI, Tom relocated to Nashville to take a position with Gibson, eventually ending up at the Custom Shop. During his tenure at Gibson Brands, he also had the role of Product Manager for Oberheim.

Following his time at Gibson, Tom spent the next 12 years on the road as a guitar tech with Wynonna Judd, Trisha Yearwood, Lee Roy Parnell, Keith Urban, LeAnn Rimes, Aerosmith, John Fogerty, and Hall & Oates. For the last 10 years, he was back home in Nashville as an artist relations representative for leading string manufacturer D’Addario & Co.

Tom now brings all of that experience in playing, touring, recording, instrument tech services, and artist relations to Fishman.

In addition to offering an array of artist services, Fishman’s office at Soundcheck Nashville has a full selection of Fishman products, along with an A/V production studio for creating artist interviews, demos and performances.

“We’re exciting to have a bigger presence in Nashville,” stated Chris DeMaria, VP of Marketing & Artist Relations. “Tom has the perfect background to represent the Fishman brand. He’s a longtime Nashvillian and knows everybody in town – artists, managers, venue operators, and other influencers.”
