NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) – Downtown Music Publishing has entered into a worldwide publishing administration agreement with the Grammy-nominated singer, composer, and pianist Tori Amos.
Under the terms of the new agreement, Downtown will now administer Amos’ complete songbook, as well as new works. Spanning seventeen studio albums, the catalog includes her debut Little Earthquakes (1992); Under The Pink, featuring the worldwide hit “Cornflake Girl” (1994); and Boys For Pele (1996), which debuted the UK chart-topping single “Professional Widow.” Among her other charting singles are “Crucify,” “Silent All These Years,” “God,” “Caught a Lite Sneeze,” “Spark,” “1000 Oceans,” “Flavor,” and the 2002 US Radio hit “A Sorta Fairytale.”
Commenting on the news, Bea Koramblyum, Downtown’s Vice President of Business Affairs said in a statement: “Tori Amos joining Downtown is an absolute honor for me personally and professionally; her music has been the soundtrack to my life and the catalyst for my career path. She is one of the most influential and beloved women in all of music, with an impressive catalog spanning over thirty years that’s not just creative, but inspirational. From her work with RAIN [Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network], her connection to her fans, and most importantly, her deeply moving words, she continues to uplift and encourage listeners. Downtown could not be more proud to be on Team Tori.”
“I am so thrilled to have Justin Kalifowitz, Bea Koramblyum, Bruce Lampcov and the rest of the Downtown team working with us to look after my song girls,” added Amos. “Downtown’s mindset on the future of songs and songwriting is truly unique and I can rest easier knowing the catalogue (and new songs to come) are in the right hands!”
In 2011, Amos became the first woman in history to have a top 10 album on the US Billboard charts in the classical, alternative, and rock categories simultaneously.
