Art Satherly

Art Satherly (October 19, 1889, Bristol, England - February 10, 1986 , Fountain Valley, California) was a record producer and A&R man, who was born in England but spent most of his career in the United States.

Satherly moved to Wisconsin in the 1910s, and took a job in the 1920s as a promoter for Paramount Records, selling discs by Ma Rainey and Blind Lemon Jefferson. He took a job with Columbia Records in 1930 and subsequently became one of the most successful country music promoters in the genre's early history. Among those he produced were Gene Autry, Bob Wills, Hank Penny, Lefty Frizzell, Carl Smith, Marty Robbins, and Roy Acuff.

He left Columbia in 1952 and went into semi-retirement, occasionally returning to production work.
