Downs joined Downtown Music Publishing in 2018 as a member of the LA-based creative marketing team, working on film, television and advertising placements.
Her promotion to VP of Film & Television follows a number of key dubbing licensing agreements, including John Prines I Remember Everything for This Is Us, The War and Treatys Take Me In for Grey’s Anatomy, Hey Mickey for The Chilling Adventures by Sabrina and Yoke Lore’s Chin Up for Council of Dads, Meliis Como Si Na for Insecure and the original by Meghan Trainor I’m in a perfect relationship for Central Park.
