Ron Pope (Nicole Mago) - 2.jpg

RON POPE IS A MUSICIAN, PRODUCER, RECORD LABEL OWNER, AND MENTOR TO COUNTLESS ASPIRING ARTISTS. HE WENT FROM SINGING IN THE NEW YORK CITY SUBWAY TO SELLING MILLIONS OF SINGLES, TOURING THE WORLD, AND CREATING A GLOBAL FANBASE - ALL WITHOUT ANY ASSISTANCE FROM THE CONVENTIONAL MUSIC INDUSTRY.  POPE’S BEGINNINGS WERE DECIDEDLY HUMBLE. HE WAS ONCE TOLD BY A TEACHER THAT TRADE SCHOOL WAS IN HIS FUTURE BECAUSE SHE DIDN’T THINK THAT HE COULD WITHSTAND THE INTELLECTUAL VIGORS OF HIGH SCHOOL. IN AN EFFORT TO CHASE HIS DREAMS (AND PROVE THE NAYSAYERS WRONG), POPE GRADUATED FROM NYU, BUILT A MUSIC CAREER FROM THE GROUND UP, AND WENT ON TO LAUNCH A RECORD LABEL BUOYED BY THE SAME DIY PRINCIPLES THAT BROUGHT HIM SUCCESS AS AN ARTIST. DESPITE THE ODDS, HIS RECORDINGS HAVE GENERATED MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN REVENUE DURING AN ERA WHEN THE BULK OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY IS IN A STATE OF SEEMINGLY ENDLESS FREEFALL.

POPE HAS BEEN A GUEST SPEAKER FOR UNIVERSITIES AND CORPORATIONS AROUND THE WORLD, FROM TRINITY COLLEGE IN DUBLIN, IRELAND TO VANDERBILT UNIVERSITY IN NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE. HIS METHODOLOGY IS APPLICABLE TO THOSE WITHIN OR OUTSIDE OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY.  RELENTLESS HARD WORK, POSITIVE THINKING, AND A WILLINGNESS TO FIND CREATIVE SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS ARE HALLMARKS OF RON POPE’S PHILOSOPHY. THOSE IDEALS ARE OF VALUE TO ANYONE, NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO FOR A LIVING.
