Herter’s mandate will include working as a music supervisor on some Butter projects,a s the company continues to provide original compositions for brands including Ragu, DirecTV, Samsung, and Duracell.

“This is a golden opportunity to work with the pros at Butter to further my belief that music has a transformative power,” said Herter in a prepared statement. “I’ve long since admired Butter’s ability to work outside the perimeters of the average music company. Working with this team — especially to develop Haystack as a well-known resource for awesome sync music — is going to yield some magical results.”
