It was announced today by Andrew Patton, President of  Patton House Entertainment, that the company will expand its operations and launch two new divisions, Patton House Booking and Patton House Music Publishing.

Patton House Booking will focus on providing unique opportunities in non-traditional venues for established and independent clients.  In this role, Patton House Booking will work side-by-side with high-profile booking agencies in order to add an extra layer of services for their artists, which includes: Jimmy Needham, Echoing Angels, National best-selling author and “American’s Health Coach,” Dr. Asa Andrew, and the youngest Top 10 finalist from “America’s Got Talent” and Disney movie actress, Kaitlyn Maher.  Michael Hare will head up the new division and will provide daily interaction with clients, promoters, churches and existing agents.  Hare will also be responsible for the booking of the educational and inspiring Sessions Conference, a national one-day seminar for independent artists and those entering the music business.  Hare hails from Charleston, West Virginia and is a Music Business Major at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville.

Launching Patton House Music Publishing will be Adam Edelstein, who was recently promoted to Director of Business and Strategic Development.  Edelstein’s responsibilities will include securing new publishing clients, acquisition of existing music catalogs and handling daily business and logistical affairs of Patton House Entertainment.  By cultivating and developing relationships and opportunities, Edelstein will help expand the size and scope of Patton House operations in management, music publishing, booking and live events.  Edelstein graduated from Belmont University with a degree in Music Business with an emphasis in Finance.  Before joining Patton House Entertainment, Edelstein worked as a Business Manager for BriBiz Business & Financial Management, in the royalty department of Warner Music Group’s New York office, Nashville’s copyright administration company, Big Loud Bucks and Word/Warner Bros. Records’ A&R Administration.

Also receiving a promotion at Patton House Entertainment is Tiffany Rockhold, who has been with the company since 2007.  In the newly created role as Director of Content and Brand Management, Rockhold will be responsible for the overall brand implementation and development of each client, along with the development of content for social media, social networking and online retail development.  Rockhold will also handle all administrative needs for media, corporate events and travel for all Patton House divisions.  Rockhold is originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico and graduated from the University of New Mexico with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication.  Rockhold’s background includes serving on staff at Calvary Chapel in Albuquerque and as events coordinator for Velocity Student Ministries.  Upon moving to Nashville, Rockhold worked for nine years with KLYT and KNKT radio stations and Carolyn Rush Concert Promotions as promotions marketing assistant and artist liaison.

“It’s an exciting time at Patton House Entertainment as we expand our operations with two new divisions,” says Andrew Patton.  “By developing these new opportunities for our artists, we’ll be able to offer them a well-rounded approach to their careers that will expand their opportunities.  Of course none of this expansion would be possible without the incredible talents of the Patton House Entertainment team, which includes: Adam Edelstein, Tiffany Rockhold, Michael Hare and Matt Ingle.  Matt has done an incredible job with our promotion and marketing division and in one short year has achieved five Top 10 singles, seven different songs being the most-added record for eleven weeks and working with Michael W. Smith to promote the Music City Haiti relief effort for Come Together Now.”

We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
