We Found New Music (WFNM) is a music discovery platform and culture curation brand founded and developed by Grant Owens and (Jonathan) Leonardo Reyes, who have been instrumental in building artists’ careers. Established in 2012, WFNM provides a unique promotional experience for artists to be recognized and discovered bridging the gap between artists and the industry.
As a live showcase, radio show, blog, and content series, WFNM has been the first point of promotion for several of today’s top artists. With early interviews and in studio performances by the likes of Billie Eilish, Yungblud, Kim Petras, Imagine Dragons and Bishop Briggs, WFNM is widely regarded throughout the music industry as a trend-defining brand.
As a USC Thornton School of Music graduate in Music Business, Grant’s curation and personal taste, as well as his experience as an A&R and Creative Director, has established him as a well respected oracle of the best upcoming pop, rock and R&B artists. Grant’s creative prowess is propelled by his co-founder, Jonathan, a CSULB Cole Conservatory School of Music graduate in Voice Performance and a Juris Doctorate Candidate (2020) having an extensive background in music, film and television on matters relating to marketing, publicity, and legal & business affairs.
Together, they collaborate with a powerful team of contributing musicians, sound engineers, writers, publicists, agents and managers. WFNM has been presenting its popular showcases since 2014, converting to a weekly residency format in 2018 at Madame Siam in Hollywood California and recently in 2020 at Bar Lubitsch in West Hollywood, California.
