(Celebrityaccess) — Secretly Publishing announced worldwide publishing admin deals for the current and future catalogs of a group of artists that includes Beirut, Dehd, Grizzly Bear and The War on Drugs.
The deal covers works by songwriters Adam Granduciel, Anthony Lamarca, Jason Balla, Emily Kempf, Christopher Bear, Chris Taylor, Daniel Rossen, David Hartley, Edward Droste, Fred Nicolaus, Jon Natchez, Robbie Bennett and Zach Condon, under the aegis of Secretly Publishing’s administration.
All of the artists signed in the deal are represented by Fort William Artist Management, who helped to broker the deal.
“We’re excited to welcome this incredible group of songwriters to the Secretly Publishing family,” says Kathleen Cook, Secretly’s Managing Director of Publishing & Sync. “Collectively, they have soundtracked some of my favorite movies, shows, and real-life memories, and it’s an honor to be entrusted with the stewardship of this catalog. Additionally, I would be hard-pressed to find a manager who is a stronger advocate for her artists than Ami Spishock. I look forward to working closely with Ami and the whole Fort William team.”
“Fort William has always supported independent publishers and has benefited because of it. We’re thrilled to add to the growing family over at Secretly Publishing. Kathy and her team are committed to working hard, getting placements and making sure collections are clear, correct and timely. I’m excited for this relationship as we go into this new era of the music business,” added Fort William founder Ami Spishock.
