Platform Music Group


Over the past 4 1/2 years, Julie Shama Stephens and Ryan Gaines have grown Platform Music Group into a successful licensing & publishing company. But alas, Ryan and Julie are parting ways to start new chapters in their lives. With one end, however, comes two new beginnings!

Julie's THINK Music Inc. will continue to focus on the majority of Platform's former roster including The Bones of J.R Jones, Chantal Claret, Desi Valentine, Jasmine Ash, Zachary Kibbee and over 100 others. CLICK HERE for a current list of artists. Julie will be joined by former Platform creative pitching reps, Shannon Quisenberry and Tarik Bradford and can be reached at,,

Ryan's Mutiny Recordings will focus on niche genres of Vintage (1949-beyond, mostly one-stop), chart topping EDM from Europe (Zomboy, The Prototypes, etc.), and Contemporary Retro Rock (blues, folk, soul, Americana, etc.). Artists include The Brevet, Jude Shuma, Mark Kelly, Lindsay Perry, Vintage Trouble, and many more. CLICK HERE for a current list of artists. Ryan can be reached directly at and is joined by Ryan M. Carroll who can be reached at

Thank you for all of your help in growing our company and artists to be both influential and impactful.
