Welcome, John G.!

John GetterIntroducing, John Getter, Senior Director, Technology

In the summer of 2003, I met my friend for lunch and he gave me the napkin pitch for what was to become IODA. At the time, I wasn’t so sure digital music would catch on, but I told him it sounded fun and I quickly joined the company. Fast forward to 2012 and IODA became part of The Orchard family. I was part of the integration team and I was very impressed with everyone I worked with. Ever since, I’ve followed the successes of The Orchard and watched it continue to grow and be a big part of the music industry. Now, I’m happy to say, I’m returning to one of my favorite places to work.


For the past few years, I’ve been in publishing with stints at Rumblefish, SESAC, HFA and finally Songspace. Publishing has lots of metadata and licensing challenges across sync, mechanical and performance rights. While I won’t miss that much, I’m happy to discuss the state of the publishing industry with anyone looking to be bored to death.

Im glad to be back and looking forward to working with everyone.
