Derrick L. Garrett
Derrick Garrett is the Founder and CEO of MFTPS, DBA Zoundz Music For Pets™. From a separate venture, Round House Multimedia, Inc., Derrick continues to be recognized globally as the creator of Music Architecture™, a new and highly effective approach to assessing all aspects of a brand’s physical environment and target demographic audience. The breakthrough approach was the company’s basis for arriving at perfectly curated music, distinctly appropriate for the designated space, and always backed by fully turnkey ongoing management. This new approach established a new standard for music management in the luxury resort hotel industry and greatly enhanced guest engagement for global hospitality brands such as Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, Nickelodeon, Grand Hyatt, Planet Hollywood, and many others.
Derrick’s experience producing bespoke music for corporate use by Fortune 500 corporations such as American Express, Ford Motor Company, Viacom and others, combined with years of record production for A-List artists such as Vanessa Williams, Elvis Costello and Whitney Houston, allows him a unique expertise and knowledge of using music to influence behavior.
Zoundz was a natural culmination of Derrick’s keen entrepreneurial acumen combined with versatile music experience, all driven by his passion for the well-being of animals. Derrick and his wife of 15 years are the parents of two young boys, Ethan and Andrew. Their family dog is named for the jazz virtuoso trumpeter, “Miles” Davis.
