JENNIFER SMITH 

JENNIFER SMITH (CO-HOST)

Jennifer Smith is a Los Angeles-based music supervisor who has worked in the film / tv / media industry for over a decade. She started her career as part of the music teams for major network shows such as Dancing With The Stars (ABC), The Ellen Degeneres Show (WB), and America’s Best Dance Crew (MTV). Her love of music and the exploding media landscape guided her to join the Kobalt Music synchronization team to creatively pitch and clear music with networks, studios, music supervisors, production companies, and new media companies. Her time at Kobalt gave her extensive and broad experience in the synchronization world, dealing with all stakeholders in the creative and business process including record labels, songwriters, producers, musicians, managers, copyright, and marketing teams. 

After seven years at Kobalt, Jennifer went back to her first love of content and storytelling and joined the music team on ABC’s American Idol. 

After that show’s first ABC season, she was inspired in 2018 to launch her own music supervision company, “Rat Dance Party.” Rat Dance Party specializes in Film, TV (scripted and non-scripted), and new media (especially podcasts). With Rat Dance Party Jennifer has worked on projects produced by Showtime, Netflix, Paramount+, Viacom, Shorts TV, Amazon, Pluto TV, NBC, Voltage Pictures, Indican Productions, Gravitas, and many more.

Outside of music supervision, Jennifer has a passion for education and teaching. She is a faculty member in the Music Business program at the Los Angeles School of Music where she teaches music business and licensing as well as Music Supervision at LACM. Starting in the fall, she will be teaching Music Supervision at UCLA Extension. Besides education, advocacy work and volunteering is important for her. She volunteers at the Food Bank of Los Angeles, has helped planned fundraisers for Alliance San Diego (working with immigration rights), active with various Jewish organizations, as well as other organizations.

Jennifer is a Board of the Guild of Music Supervisors (GMS), a member of the Television Academy, Women In Film, Women In Media, Women In Music, and the Recording Academy, and The CCC.

Coyote Eyes 

COYOTE EYES ft. AMANDA RITCHIE

Coyote Eyes is the alter ego of New York bred, Los Angeles based multi-disciplinary artist Jo Eubanks, also known as Lily Graves. The classical singer turned goth pop powerhouse is known for her unusual, emotionally charged voice, as well as her razor-sharp lyrics and eerie hooks. Her music is, like her, equally tragic and seductive. She began training as a classical vocalist at age 11, and by 16 she was sparking label interest for “having the pain of a 30 year old woman trapped in a child’s body”.

In 2018, Eubanks debuted the Coyote Eyes project, and after a gut-wrenching performance at iHeart Radio Live Sessions, quickly became known as the “Sylvia Plath of the Lower East Side”.

She sites her greatest influences as 90s film composers like Nellee Hooper, Clint Mansell, Cliff Martinez, and Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, as well as grunge artists such as Garbage, Nirvana, Bush, and The Cranberries, so in 2020 she retreated to her creative lab with producer to find a way to merge them. Out of this Lily Graves was born. This evocative new project, set to release fall 2022, is filled with lush strings, cinematic soundscapes, and haunting vocals sure to tug at your heart strings and send shivers down your spine. Coyote Eyes is also one half of WTCH, a cinematic pop duo with 4 time Grammy nom Molly Cherryholmes.

Lauderdale Ballet Classique.  But after graduation, her desire to travel the world led her to run away with the circus as a headlining aerialist/dancer with shows such as: Dezire, Cirque on Ice and Four Spirit of the Elements. 

In 2009 until May 2015 she made the bright lights of Vegas her home performing with Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity and Michael Jackson ONE.  Amanda now lives in Los Angeles, California where she teaches her craft to all ages and all walks of life.  In 2020 Grounded in Flight, Amanda’s aerial company and studio, was born.
