The Dream Adopters is a multifaceted media company with a foundation firmly rooted in talent management for award-winning recording artists, music producers, and songwriters. Founded by respected industry veteran Justin Garza, this roster has already powered a series of smashes to the tune of 75 billion global streams in addition to contributing either songwriting, music production or live instrumentation to GRAMMY® Award-nominated and Latin GRAMMY® Award-nominated records from the likes of Dua Lipa, Chloe + Halle, Drake, J Balvin, Olivia Rodrigo, Camila Cabello, and many more.
Among many recent highlights, clients Melanie Fontana and Lindgren co-wrote the rising R&B hit “Honey” [with Muni Long] for EGOT-winning superstar John Legend. Other successes include a co-writing credit on Anne-Marie’s “I Just Called” for client Bekah Novi and co-production on Hunter Hayes’ “Missing You” by Lindgren & mixing by client Curtis Douglas. The firm recently orchestrated a co-publishing deal for Fontana between a trio of powerhouses—Universal Music Publishing, Tommy Brown’s Champagne Therapy, and legendary producer David Foster. They also aligned Lindgren under an innovative deal with Sony Music Publishing, Tommy Brown’s Champagne Therapy, and iconic powerhouse Ryan Tedder. Speaking to the sustained impact and influence of both Fontana and Lindgren, the notable duo co-wrote the RIAA platinum-certified award-winning BTS smash “Boy With Luv” [feat. Halsey]. The latter scaled the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 and achieved three Guinness World Records, including “most-viewed YouTube video in 24 Hours.”
Regarding the company’s vision, C.E.O. and Founder Garza commented, “At our core, our foundation is firmly grounded in doing integrity-based business. I know that if you ask around the industry, we have a distinguished reputation for being reasonable and fair, all while drawing boundaries to ensure our creatives self-value and worth is never, ever compromised. While some management companies' sole focus is business, we always prioritize the creative and art over commerce. It’s paramount to us as a company to nurture art and creative freedom, all while ensuring we’re setting up our clients with general knowledge of how the music business functions so they can in turn make the best, informed decisions for their careers.”
Garza actually launched his career as an artist, gaining invaluable experience and perspective in the recording studio and on the road. Following this chapter, he worked on management teams for the likes of Black Eyed Peas, Will.I.Am, Ty Dolla $ign, Afrojack, and more before introducing The Dream Adopters. Next up, he will personally be Executive Music Producer and Supervisor for the upcoming feature film Singing In My Sleep, directed by Nick Wilson, starring Malin Akerman, Jessica Belkin & Gavin Leatherwood, which will feature new original music from Fontana and Lindgren.
Meanwhile, the company notably minted a partnership with inventive tech startup Studiotime best-described as “the Airbnb for music studios.” It has emerged as the largest marketplace for booking and renting studios and was acquired in July 2021.
Other artists under the company’s purview, namely Kid Quill, Tess Henley, and Soaky Siren, are gearing up for new original projects out soon. Producers and writers have also been hard at work on upcoming music from Ava Max, John Legend, TWICE, Hunter Hayes, Aidan Martin, ENISA, Idina Menzel, Bam Bam, James Reid, Destiny Rogers, Lexy Pantera, Steve Aoki, HRVY, Sophie Meiers, Galantis and many more.
At the same time, The Dream Adopters endeavors to give back at every turn, supporting organizations such as Inner City Arts, The Project Matters and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, among others.
“I hope that people can see that the standard of professionalism and greatness we hold ourselves to is gradually growing day in and day out,” adds Garza. “I hope others see that we truly are fulfilled by investing in others, through adopting our clients' dreams as our own, all while setting the example that success in this business does not have to come at the cost of others. I hope people see that we are the good guys - we are reliable, fair, innovative and passionate about music, building lasting careers and legacies.”
The full Dream Adopters roster is as follows: Bekah Novi, Brian Justin Crum, Curtis Douglas, Erick Serna, Gino Barletta, GG Ramirez, Jacob Munk, Kid Quill, Lindgren, Melanie Fontana, Omega, Prince Fox, Soaky Siren, and Tess Henley.
