    Derek Luff

    CEO

    With more than 30 years experience as a composer, producer, and in audio production, Derek knows a thing or two about sound!

    Richard Gelles

    Richard Gelles

    President

    Over 25 years in the music business … and still searching for that perfect song!

    Dave Zumsteg

    Dave Zumsteg

    Director of Operations

    Originally from the music megapolis of Delaware, David left the First State for California, lured by the bright lights, big city, and the opportunity to play at the Whisky A Go-Go and rock on the same stage as his favorite band, Van Halen. Whether he’s composing, playing or touring, he freely admits to being addicted to music.

    Annette Fernandez

    Annette Fernandez

    Financial Administrator

    While Annette was a big fan of Supertramp when she was a teenager, nowadays she is more into artists such as Rod Stewart, Phil Collins, Elton John, and Harry Connick. When she is not busy with accounting at DL Music, Annette loves to cook, play tennis and most of all to travel.

    Marisol Zucker-Luff

    Marisol Zucker-Luff

    Business Devlopment

    Marisol started in Client Services at M.T.I. in NYC back in the 80s before relocating to Los Angeles. For the next 18 years, she served as Billing Manager / Head of Sales & Development at Sunset Post. After a short stint at 2G Digital, she moved on to DL Music and its family of companies in Client Relations and Business Development.

    Hal Stephens

    Hal Stephens

    Composer/Engineer

    Hal is the in-house composer and engineer. He provides top-quality custom music for any client request, is constantly composing new material for the catalog and handles all of DL’s audio engineering needs.

    Nola Lowy

    Nola Lowy

    Creative Director, Sync & BizDev

    Born and raised in the rolling hills of sunny Los Angeles, Nola spent her formative years addicted to all things music. A true emo kid at heart, you’ll (still) rarely find her without a pair of headphones on, turned up to 11. Despite a life filled with music playing arguably too loud, Nola has managed to grow into a true audiophile with a sharp ear for the right sound; immersed in the magically weird world of Music, Media, and Entertainment since before she can remember. Nola brings the same level of passion, enthusiasm, dedication, creativity, and vision that she put into her life-changing Middle School playlists, to everything she does.

    Alex Curiel

    Alex Curiel

    Music Publishing Admin/Jr. Music Cordinator

    Alex is the music publishing administrator for the team. Coming right out of Cal State Northridge with a degree in entertainment media management, Alex knew she wanted to be in the entertainment industry. She is a firm believer in the magic of potatoes and the many forms they can take and is constantly trying to attend as many concerts as humanly possible. Her music style ranges from pop to punk rock to classical and anything in between.

    Adrian Olesnyckyj

    Adrian Olesnyckyj

    Sales

    After years of corporate sales experience in NYC, Adrian brought his east coast sensibilities and business development talents to Los Angeles. As a fan of Hip-Hop, Disco, Classic Rock, Afro-Beat, and Romantic-Era Preludes, you can catch Adrian listening to everything from Sade to Chaka Khan to Chopin. He also loves music production, the New York Yankees, puppies, and ice cream.
