Tony Ferguson

Producer, Executive Producer and Senior A&R Executive

Tony has made a significant impact on modern music having discovered and developed some of our favorite top artists over the last 30+ years. His experience and success is a testament to the PACIFIC NORTHWEST ENTERTAINMENT GROUP'S mission to bring success to a select group of artists yet to be discovered!

Tony started his career in the mid-sixties as a professional musician. A British native Tony was a member of several successful London based bands with a series of top 40 credits.

In the late 70s he joined the business side of music working with a highly successful record label, STIFF RECORDS. This led to a permanent move to the US in 1980 opening the STIFF offices in New York.

Over the following decades Tony's production and artist management contribution as well as his executive role with major labels, studios and management firms has been extensive. His credits include discovering many top artists in the industry to then produce 100s of top selling records.

Scott Stimpson

CFO, Executive Producer, Producer, Personal Manager, Radio Promoter
 

Scott brings a unique and critical combination of experience to the table as one of the founders of the Pacific Northwest Entertainment Group.

From the mid-sixties throughout the mid-eighties, he performed as a musician and singer in many of the popular bands within the New Jersey club circuit. Scott soon became a regular fixture in both the live and studio music communities as a session sax player, arranger and producer.

This involvement led to Scott's participation in the building and business development of the Broccoli Rabe Recording Studio Complex. New Jersey's premier multimedia center included recording, rehearsal, television studios, talent agencies and more, all under one roof.

Achieving a B.A in finance with honors brought Scott to Seattle where he again stepped into the recording business working with local artists within the Seattle Grunge Movement.

Post Graduate work brought him to The Chevron Corporation after which he spent 10 years in the Corporate Tax Department of The Boeing Company, invaluable experience he then brought back to the entertainment industry.

Our Mission

Many artists are working very hard performing and recording. The idea of PNWEG is to 'plug' into what they are doing and develop their unique talents to the next logical level. PNW realizes that every artist is different and requires individual attention to all the aspects of their musical career. With this in mind, PNW acts like a small boutique management / record label consulting and guiding the artist to realize their vision, not just locally but globally.

The music business has changed over the last 20 years. Major record labels are unable to effectively develop artists as they did in the past. Their rosters are huge as well as their overhead. Consequently, there's a void created where small companies of professional music business people are able to provide that all important nurturing. PNW has the talent and experience to do that all important work - ARTIST DEVELOPMENT.
