Patrick Joest

About Frankfurt legends, successful synchs and champagne on the fax machine.

Patrick Jöst started at Sony Music and then in his hometown of Frankfurt in marketing and promotion for 3p in the music industry. During this time he accompanied, among others, Sabrina Setlur and Xavier Naidoo in their enormous successes. He then moved to the media side and as Talent & Artist Relations Manager for the then popular music channel MTV. He later set up the Song Marketing & Synch Licensing department for advertising, film and video games for Sony/ATV Music Publishing, before being responsible for similar areas at BMG from 2009 to 2020 and working in management positions worldwide.

In the Redfield Podcast, Jöst reports entertainingly about his previous positions and explains how diverse he currently advises, invests and works as an internationally networked music expert for synch, publishing and music tech. He explains this often still unknown world and also allows personal insights into his own career and family history. These range from the legendary Frankfurt Jöst houses to his German-Argentinian roots.
