Get your music published!

As a music enthusiast, I gravitate toward innovative concepts. I recently happened upon a super cool company called Neko Music Group. What captured my attention were the eclectic sounds they encompass and the passion and commitment to support and stay true to the artist. Some of the Neko tunes I like include the genres of Rock, Hip Hop, Blues, Country, Pop and Classical.

Neko Music group is a cutting edge, music publishing and licensing company.

The management team is made up of established artists, musicians, engineers, producers, and business professionals. They work together to help you develop your sound and establish your musical identity.

Neko has worked with some of the biggest names in the business including Ray Parker Junior and Smokey Robinson.

I asked a few questions of CEO, Jeremy Goldsmith:

How did the concept start?
Lon Miller originally came up with the concept; He has been involved in the music industry for the last twenty years as a producer, and musician. We now have five partners who are working to bring NEKO to the songwriting audience. We are currently revamping our website, but it can be seen at

What does Neko do?
We sign songwriters (not necessarily performers) and promote their songs to organizations, such as TV and Movie companies for use in their productions. We also have access to our own recording facilities so if we like one of your songs, we are able to record a quality demo of it and re-arrange it as needed.

From the beginning to the end, our objective is to successfully convey your message, develop your sound, and establish your musical identity. While our facilities are located in Hollywood, our approach aspires to produce sophisticated music that remains true to the artist’s and/or band’s style and sound.

Is there anything that you would like the public to know?
We are a fairly new company looking for songwriters, so please send us demos. We promise we will listen to every single one!


The muse struck at a young age and began with Ernie’s Record Shop on Lankershim Blvd. In North Hollywood where I purchased my first Beatle record “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” and a record by Major Lance titled “Um,Um,Um,Um,Um,Um”. From there I saw the Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl and I was hooked…on Rock N’ Roll. At the age of 13 it seems as if the magical world of Rock N’ Roll opened up and welcomed me. A trip to Indio with Frank Zappa and possee, and subsequent gigs as a dancer at The Teen Fairs at the Hollywood Palladium sealed the deal. As a trained journalist, I’ve written for magazines, newsletters,newspapers and blogs. In addition, I have run a nightclub by the name of The Cave. Music is the thread that weaves a patchwork quilt of genres, venues and experience out of my life and in the process have introduced many fine acts to my followers. For the rest of my story dear readers, read my articles and it will unfold like the petals of a lotus flower. Sometimes you’ve gotta wear the hat to remind people who they are dealing with. LOL
