Ohio Alum, Marcus Meston moved to Nashville in 2017 after finishing up his degree in Audio Production to begin work as a Music Composer. Past projects have included teaming up with Producer/Composers like Matt Mahaffey and Keiffer Infantino on a variety of shows like Transformers: Rescue Bots (Discovery Family), Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Nickelodeon), Nella the Princess Knight (Nick Jr.), Total Bellas and Total Divas (E! Channel). In addition Meston has worked for the sync licensing company/publisher Position Music along with producing artists around town.
Recently, his work is being featured in the promo for an upcoming digital series staring Nashville Predators player, P.K. Suban. Marcus shared with NashvilleBobcats.com about the experience. “A lot of times when my songs get synced, I don’t know about it until much later. In this case, I was just watching the pregame for the Chiefs vs. Colts and then I heard my music being used for the show’s trailer. Afterwards, I did a little research and saw that P.K Subban premiered the promo during an interview with Mike Tirico during the Winter Classic about a week and half earlier. “
Marcus continues that, “It was such a rush to find out that the Winter Classic had about 3 million people tuned in during the broadcast, so in that regard it felt rewarding. But all in all, I was just extremely grateful for the opportunity and I’m glad that the editors thought that it was a great fit for promoting the show!”
Looking back on his time spent at OU, Meston says it was a great experience and prepared him in a lot of ways. “It was very valuable to learn about the business side of the music industry and to gain experience in their studio. I also learned a lot outside of the classroom. I had the opportunity to travel to Austin twice for school trips, produce artists for the student run label (Brick City Records), and meet other driven students with the same interests! Marcus is extremely thankful for the “Bobcat connection” and always lights up when he crosses paths with a fellow Bobcat Alum. “It has been very cool to see more and more graduates head down here for work opportunities!”
The P.K. Project premieres January 25th as part of an All Star Game Special, following the 2019 SAP NHL All Star Skills show on NBC Sports Network. Fans will get to see Subban enjoying places in Nashville during the promo (especially Loveless Cafe!) and furthermore in the series on NBCSN.
