San Rafael, CA, August 6, 2018 – Audio Story-Tellers Temp Love, currently celebrating their 5-Year Anniversary, have signed longtime music industry pro Marc Mannino to serve as Representative of their music catalog. The announcement was made by Temp Love Co-Owners John McDermott and Christian Hanlon.

A young, up and coming music company built from years of experience, the Temp Love team, comprised of 20 audio professionals nationwide – composers, mixers, music supervisors, and music legal specialists – brings a holistic audio approach to every one of their clients’ productions. Temp Love’s new headquarters is within the historic 32TEN Studios site in Marin, CA.

“We are pretty damn happy and stoked to have Marc Mannino now representing our catalog,” said Hanlon. “He’s the type of guy that understands the value of music across all media, and has a laser focus on forging innovative and lasting relationships between multiple content creators.”

Adds McDermott, “Given his past experience, our approaching Marc to bring the Temp Love catalog to the masses seemed like a no-brainer. But what really sealed the deal for us was his well-kept beard! As a company that prides itself both on great music and meticulous facial grooming, the thinking behind this relationship was, of course, a slam-dunk.”

Regarding his new working relationship with Temp Love, Mannino responds enthusiastically: “I’m thrilled to be working with Temp Love’s John McDermott and Christian Hanlon to represent their strong catalog. In only five years, these guys have already developed and produced a robust and fresh roster of production music in an ever-expanding and highly competitive marketplace. Plus, they have proven expertise in bringing together diverse work strategies. All of which is sure to lead to solid end results.”


Originally hailing from the “wrong side of the tracks” in New York City, Marc
Mannino has an extensive background representing some of the largest music publishers in the world. Before his association with Temp Love, Mannino had most recently been the East Coast Director of Music Licensing for Elias Arts. There, he developed strategic relationships with Netflix, Showtime, Grey Advertising, Ogilvy and McCann, among countless other end clients.

Prior to his role with Elias Arts, Mannino had earlier been the Director of Music Synchronization for IMAGEM Publishing USA, also based in New York. There, he drove significant revenue growth across three wildly diverse catalogs: Rodgers & Hammerstein, Boosey & Hawkes, and IMAGEM Music Pop, including the acquisition of the Elvis Presley catalog.

Mannino relocated to the tech-savvy, rainbow-loving paradise of San Francisco in 2015, to pursue what he saw as “the explosion of global content happening at the intersection of technology, entertainment, and advertising.”

Mannino’s wildcard? He began his professional career gathering competitive intelligence for clients within the pharmaceutical industry.


Founded in San Francisco in 2013, Temp Love is a full-service music production company that offers clients original scores, compelling sound design, and nearly 3,000 tracks of easy-to-clear production music from their rapidly-growing library.

Working closely together, company Co-Owners John McDermott and Christian Hanlon have overseen, produced, and created music and sound design for Oscar-nominated films, major national advertising campaigns, and an array of ground breaking digital projects.

With their brand new creative and production studios at the legendary 32Ten Studios (the birthplace of George Lucas’s Industrial Light and Magic, and the site of numerous “Star Wars”- related film productions), Temp Love offers clients the ability to craft the perfect sounding score for each of their productions, ranging from the grandest orchestral movements to the filthiest, untamed, three-chord garage rock imaginable.

To date, the company’s narrative placements within the entertainment industry have included tracks heard within the HBO series “Girls,” A24’s “Obvious Child,” the upcoming FX/Anonymous Content series “Quarter Life Poetry,” and the Academy Award-nominated documentary film “Facing Fear.” Other Temp Love entertainment clients have also included CBS TV and Syfy.

Temp Love regularly works with such top ad agency clients as AKQA, Oglivy, Pereira O’Dell, and Weiden + Kennedy. The company’s direct corporate clients have included Google, LinkedIn, Nestlé, Twitter, Old Navy and Reddit. Additionally, Temp Love has also provided music to promotional campaigns for such other top brands as Target, Nationwide, Titleist, Hidden Valley, and NVIDIA, to name just a few.
