NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Music publisher Kobalt announced that it has secured a deal to administer the catalog of the late blues-rock pioneer Gregg Allman.
Gregg Allman. The worldwide agreement includes publishing administration and global synch services for all of Gregg Allman’s works, which include songs with The Allman Brothers Band as well as material from his solo career.
This is the first change in administration for the Allman catalog in more than 15 years and marks the first time that it will be represented worldwide by one publishing entity.
“Gregg Allman’s fans have a deep and personal connection to the man that goes beyond the music and right to the heart of who Allman was as a person. He was, as the song says, ‘no angel’, but through all his ups and downs he stayed true to himself, his family, his band, and to those dedicated fans. The music supervision community is no different. We will endeavor to find and foster the music supervisor fans, and to make new converts, as we market not only his songs but the stories, the passion, and the honesty that defined his remarkable life in music,” said Kobalt’s Senior Vice President, Commercial Synch, Keith D’Arcy.
Allman, who died in 2017, recorded multiple albums as part of the Allman Brothers, but had a successful solo career as well, with hits such as I’m No Angel, and Midnight Rider.
“Gregg and The Allman Brothers Band legacy is rich with great music that should be recognized for music generations to come. His iconic catalog transcends time and many music categories. Our global creative and sync team will breathe new life into these songs from decades ago, to be heard by new and old fans alike around the world,” said Merril Wasserman-Serling, Kobalt’s EVP of Business Development.
