Maria Egan Joins Splice as Chief Music Officer Following Pulse Exit

Former Pulse Music Group president and head of creative Maria Egan has joined music creation platform Splice, where she will serve as its first-ever chief music officer.

In her new role, Egan will connect Splice with the commercial music industry by identifying new talent and developing initiatives and products to support the songwriting, record label and publishing communities. Founded in 2013, Splice offers a community of more than four million musicians a platform to find sounds, rent gear and collaborate on projects.

“At Pulse I used Splice as an A&R tool, signing new writers that built their brands on the platform,” says Egan, who exited Pulse after seven years in June. “I’ve watched Splice become a key player in this space and believe they’re positioned to be a leader in the future of collaboration. It couldn’t be a better time to leverage their innovative tech and thriving community to give creators all around the world opportunities they wouldn’t otherwise have.”

Added Splice co-founder and CEO Steve Martocci: “Maria deeply understands the creative process and how Splice fits into creation and collaboration at the top tiers of music. She also understands firsthand how Splice can be a pathway for talented bedroom creators to reach the traditional music industry. Maria joins at a time when the existing team’s contributions have helped put Splice on the music industry map and all over the radio in a major way. I couldn’t be more proud to have Maria leading Splice’s connections with the wider music community.”

Egan will also oversee a new structure for Splice’s music and industry relations department. Jen Mozenter has been promoted to vp of A&R, after bringing A-list creators like Boi-1da (Drake, Rihanna) and WondaGurl (Travis Scott, Lil Uzi Vert) over to the platform for original sample packs as part of its Splice Sounds library.

“Any creator should be able to come to Splice and see themselves represented in our community,” Mozenter says. “I’m honored to share the stories of artists who help drive and shape culture. And that’s the work I’ll continue to do alongside my team.”
