Shelby Yoder is named manager and head of the Music City operation.
Industry colleagues David Hodges, Lucas Keller and David Margolis have opened new offices and studios in Nashville. Located in Nashville’s “Nations” neighborhood, the offices are home to three companies: Milk & Honey, founded by president Keller; My World MGMT, owned by Margolis; and Third and Verse Music Publishing in which Keller, Margolis and songwriter/producer Hodges are partners.
Additionally, Shelby Yoder has been named manager and head of Nashville for Milk & Honey and My World MGMT as well as creative for Third and Verse.
Managed by Keller for the last nine years, Hodges is a former member of the band Evanescence and has written songs for Carrie Underwood (“See You Again”), Kelly Clarkson (“Because of You”), Maren Morris and Vince Gill (“Dear Hate”) and Seth Ennis (“Woke Up in Nashville”), among others. “Nashville’s always been an integral city to the legacy of American music,” said Hodges in a statement announcing the new offices. “I’m so excited to explore the possibilities this city has to offer in country music and beyond with our team here.”
