Between the work that Sad Pony (Jeremiah Raisen) has done on his own and the work he has done with his brother and fellow AAM client, Justin Raisen, Sad Pony has made an indelible mark on the pop and R&B music worlds. His work, based out of Los Angeles, combines his own intuitive talent with his effort to bring to the table what few others can. His work has broadened what we understand pop music to be. His work with Kelela helped her album Take Me Apart make it to #4 on Pitchfork’s 50 Best Albums of 2017, and the single “Frontline” come in at #9 on Pitchfork’s 100 Best Songs of 2017 – co-written by Sad Pony. Sad Pony’s contributions to Charli XCX’s album Sucker helped bring it to no. 6 on Rolling Stone’s Best Albums 50 of 2014, and no. 32 on NME’s 2015 Albums of the Year, besides topping charts worldwide.
Sad Pony has brought his unique approach to artists including Sky Ferreira for her album Night Time, My Time which charted in the US, UK, and Australia; Keala; Charli XCX; Sky Ferreira; Santigold; Smooky Margielaa; Miya Follick and many more. He helped bring Lawrence Rothman’s deeply personal messages of self-assurance and gender fluidity to the broader music industry through his writing contributions to Rothman’s 2017 album, The Book of Law, and most recent EP, I Know I’ve Been Wrong, But Can We Talk?
