Publishing Admin & Creative Services – Terrorbird Publishing | | Josh Briggs was raised in the wilds of Western Massachusetts. Not the Pixies part, or the Dinosaur Jr part, or even the New Kids in the Block part. It was the Staind part. Luckily, that has very little to do with what happened next: He went to Emerson College in Boston, where he played music, and produced two WERS radio shows: One for children, and one, presumably (given its timeslot), for grown-ups. Rest assured, he had terrible on-air aliases for both. Upon graduation, he moved to Los Angeles, California where he interned, temped, assisted and scouted at Capitol Records, which led him, circuitously, to the American Society of Composers, Authors...

Producer, Songwriter – “Gucci Shoe Shoppin',” “Self-Made Man,” “Les Sex, “Boomerang”  I grew up in Boston & NYC, went to Skidmore College and studied Music Technology, English, and Business. Although most of my time was spent smoking weed, drinking, fucking, and making hip hop beats on an Akai MPC 2KXL. I graduated in 2006 and moved to NYC where I earned shitty money recording 50 Cent, Cam'ron, Ghostface and many other prominent rappers from 2006-2010. Eventually (when I realized that rap $ sucked), I switched focus to Pop music and songwriting. I traveled often to Europe w/ my production partner MGI between 2009-12 and learned a lot about writing great melodies, crafting a hit song, and working w/ labels. I was always pretty good with lyrics because of my interest in English... Read More →
