NEW YORK CITY — Music and sound boutique Nylon Studios, with offices in Manhattan and Sydney, Australia, has hired Deb Oh as senior producer. Oh is a classically-trained musician with nearly a decade of experience in the commercial music space, where she has worked as a music supervisor and producer on both the agency and studio sides. She comes to Nylon from Y&R, where she spent two years working as a music producer for clients that include Dell, Xerox, Special Olympics, Activia and Optum.
A lifelong musician, Oh grew up learning classical piano and singing at a very early age. She began writing and performing her own music in high school and kept up her musical endeavors while studying political science at NYU. Following graduation, she made the leap to follow her passion for music full time, landing as a client service coordinator at Headroom. She quickly learned multiple aspects of the commercial music industry and was promoted to music supervisor, working with a wide range of clients on commercial and branded content. She simultaneously continued to perform with her band throughout New York City. After five years with the audio shop, she made the leap to the agency side to broaden her skillset and gain perspective into the landscape of vendors, labels and publishers in the commercial music industry.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled and excited to have Deb join the New York team,” says Nylon Studios global executive producer Hamish Macdonald. “Not only is she an experienced producer and a talented musician, but music is her absolute passion, driving force and happy place, which she now shares with our whole company. I also believe it’s the ultimate testament to the incredible work we’re producing, when a previous client has a real desire to join the team.”
