John Anderson

John Anderson is the ringmaster of Hunnypot Unlimited, a multifaceted Music Publishing, Artist Representation, Marketing and Film & Television Placement organization specializing in discovering and cultivating fresh music talent.

The Hunnypot Unlimited brand is synonymous with quality music and recognized as one of the premier industry tastemaker sources. Hunnypot provides exclusive promotion, marketing, brand development and placement representation of owned and non-owned copyright and recording assets through expansive relationships within the music, film, television, ad and gaming communities using unique, forward thinking approaches to business and distinct and creative grass roots campaigns. As a tastemaker, Hunnypot provides exposure to cutting edge music and changes the palate of listeners worldwide through endorsement, promotion, packaging and/or planning of live music concerts and events. Hunnypot Radio and the Hunnypot Website provide instant awareness of Hunnypot artist activity as well as contemporary music news and other culturally relevant media.

John spent the first 20 years of his career in the music industry as an integral member of Windswept Music Publishing.  He helped take the company from a fledgling start-up to the largest independent Music Publisher in the world, a feat that recently resulted in one of the most lucrative catalogue sales in Music Publishing history.

In 2008 John applied the A&R/Publisher/Placement model to the branded Hunnypot name and established itself as a leading independent music publishing/placement company representing the catalogues of Far East Movement, Fujiya & Miyagi, The Old Believers, Hollywood Holt, Mic Terror, Tittsworth, The Glass, Clubfeet, The Mae Shi, Hot Pink DeLorean, Dr. Hollywood, The Victorian English Gentlemens Club and These United States.

John’s early track record as a song-plugger boasts hits like Eric Clapton’s “Before You Accuse Me” and Vanessa Williams’ career-defining song “Save The Best For Last.”  Over the course of his industrious Publishing career, John has worked closely with some of the biggest songwriters of all-time including Sean Garrett (Usher “Yeah”, Fergie “London Bridge”), Mike Elizondo (50 Cent “In Da Club”, Mary J. Blige “Family Affair”) and Albert Hammond (Julio Iglesias “To All The Girls I’ve Loved Before,” The Hollies “The Air That I Breathe”).

As Sr. Vice President of Film & Television Music for Windswept, John was essential in the synchronization and licensing careers of such seminal artists as Pete Townsend, John Mellencamp, Nick Cave, The Allman Brothers and Willie Nelson as well as new stars like Corrine Bailey Ray, Snow Patrol, Kings of Leon, Beyonce, Mickey Avalon and Lady Sovereign.  Some personal placement triumphs for John include Snow Patrol “Chasing Cars” in Grey’s Anatomy, The Who songs featured in the entire CSI franchise, Kings of Leon’s “Molly’s Chamber” for Volkswagon, and The Dollyrots “Because I’m Awesome” for both Hewlitt/Packard and Kohl’s Department Stores.

As one of the key A&R representatives for Windswept, some of John’s signings included Fischerspooner, The Dollyrots, Meat Beat Manifesto, The Cramps, Talib Kweli, Blackstar, The Coup, Hi-Tek, The BellRays, Johnette Napollitano (Concrete Blonde) and Shy Child.

John is also on the Music Industry Executive Fundraising Committee for the City of Hope, the premier Music Industry charity organization and is a member of the Academy of Country Music (ACM) Film & Television Task Force.
