Timothy Trudeau


Timothy Trudeau began his professional journey in the music business in 1997 as a recording artist who toured all over the United States. Since then, he’s written and produced for GRAMMY-nominated artists on major labels, photographed and designed Stellar-nominated album art, released Dove-nominated projects on his record label, and founded a distribution and marketing agency serving awardees of all three.

As the CEO and founder of Syntax Creative—a digital distribution and marketing agency boasting the exclusive worldwide rights to over 70,000 songs—he and his team of experts have the pleasure of working with over 150 record labels and countless talented artists from multiple genres spanning from Bluegrass to Hip Hop, and everything in between.

He’s also directly negotiated deals with some of the largest companies in the world, including Apple, Microsoft, Google, Amazon, and Facebook—and has often been the first in a space to do so.

His ability to adapt and predict trends has led to his quotes appearing in noteworthy outlets such as CNN, Washington Post, ABC News, People, American Express, US News & World Report, Business Insider, Billboard, Yahoo, Rapzilla, and NPR.

As a sought-after leader, he’s spoken at notable conferences such as Music Biz, Americana Music Festival, Long Beach Film Festival, Immerse, Legacy Conference, San Diego Music Thing, and All Eyes On Me.

He also loves to serve. This is why he’s participated in both DOVE and GRAMMY committees, and is an active Board member of the Music Business Association. He’s also spearheaded several unique live event experiences sponsored by SXSW, Microsoft, Toyota, and Rockstar Energy. On multiple occasions, he has designed and led educational tracks for conferences such as Music Biz, Gospel Music Association, Urban Network, and Flavor Fest.
