NOBLE STEED MUSIC AND JLS ARTIST MANAGEMENT OFFER WORLD-CLASS SERVICE TO RECORDING ARTISTS
Noble Steed Music: an imprint offering record label service to independent artists, with distribution through Downtown / DashGo
JLS Artist Management: a full-service entertainment management company, built to represent a music-centric client base that is active worldwide
JLS Artist Management and Noble Steed Music were founded in January of 2013 by entertainment industry veteran Jason Spiewak with a deep appreciation for the company’s slogan and mantra: great music will always find an audience. It is his unblinking passion for artist development and embracing of new technologies that has guided Spiewak for over two decades in music.
Spiewak learned the music business on the independent side of the record company world, with early work experience at Artemis Records, Studio E Records and TVT Records. At Artemis, Spiewak ran the company’s college radio program, scoring high-charting records for Warren Zevon, Steve Earle, Sugarcult, and a number one with “Loose Screw” by The Pretenders. At TVT Records, Spiewak executed online marketing campaigns for artists including Pitbull, Ying Yang Twins, 213, Sevendust, and the double platinum “Crunk Juice” by Lil Jon and the Eastside Boyz.
Spiewak co-founded the Warner Music (ADA) distributed-label Rock Ridge Music in 2004, later to be named that company’s President. While at Rock Ridge, Spiewak’s A&R credits included artists as diverse as Reel Big Fish, Kittie, Ingram Hill, Tony Lucca and Pat McGee. The company’s online marketing clients included Atlantic Records, J Records, RCA Records, RUN DMC, Twisted Sister, Barry Manilow and Better Than Ezra. Under Spiewak’s leadership, the label enjoyed the success of high-charting releases by Sister Hazel, Rachel Platten, Five.Bolt.Main, Psychostick, Reel Big Fish, and a #1 jazz record by former baseball great Bernie Williams.
Spiewak has been a NARAS (Grammy) voting member since 2003, and is an accomplished producer, pianist, studio musician, and songwriter. He has been writing a song a week since November of 2011, sparked by joining Bob Schnieder’s “The Song Game” at that time. Additionally, Spiewak donates his time to the Music Is Love Exchange, a charitable organization that leads groups of musicians and fans to Guatemala annually for week-long service trips.
