He brings amazing curation and unites his own roster, A Suit of Leaves, which is now available in DIVER - our newest division representing record label releases for active touring mid-major level bands and artists. Palmer will be focused on presenting artists for entertainment and advertising placements. He’s a very welcome new player in our creative team.”

Adds Palmer, "I'd been seeking a powerful ally for my company, A Suit of Leaves - I've found that in Riptide Music Group, a company with a rock-solid track record that values the creative side of our business. I'm excited to expand my partnership with the team here, creating new music moments in film, TV, advertising and beyond."

Rich Goldman, President of Riptide, said, “Jonathan is one of the few people that I’ve had the pleasure to know who combines his broad musical knowledge with an enviable level of taste, to execute on the work that he loves to do - syncing great music with picture. His over-all chops are exemplary, not to mention the wide respect he enjoys from the community. We couldn’t be happier to have Jonathan and A Suit of Leaves partner with Riptide.”
