UMPG NASHVILLE DIVES INTO THE RIVER HOUSE
10/18/19

Universal Music Publishing Nashville has partnered with River House Artists to ink singer/songwriter Ray Fulcher to an exclusive global pub deal. The Georgia native, whose EP Somebody Like Me has accumulated 15m+ streams since its June release, has also co-penned eight tracks on country star Luke Combs’ debut album, This One’s for You (River House Artists/Columbia Nashville), including #1 single “When It Rains It Pours,” and latest single “Even Through I’m Leavin’.”

“All you can ask for as a writer is a team and family who believe in your songs and share the same vision and work ethic. Couldn’t have picked a better group of people for those things,” says Fulcher. UMPG Nashville's Chairman/CEO Troy Tomlinson adds, “This is going to be a fun ride and we look forward to delivering many creative opportunities.”

River House Artists' founder/CEO Lynn Oliver also states, “Ray was the first songwriter to sign with me as a publisher and to trust in River House Artists as a publishing company. I am so proud of the relationships he and I have built, and we are looking forward to growing with the team at Universal.” Seen thinking they'll need a bigger boat are (l-r) Ron Stuve, Terry Wakefield, Fulcher, Oliver, and Tomlinson.

ELEVATED PULSE

This photo from Pulse Music's annual Silver Lake throwdown shows company principals Josh AbrahamMaria Egan and Scott Cutler in the earliest moments of the party, which shortly thereafter welcomed more than 2k attendees, most of them creatives. If you were able to move when the event was in full swing, you might maneuver yourself over to the cannabis booth, from which dozens of new compositions—and a yearning for avocado toast—were undoubtedly born. 

Rumors of a giant truck full of money backing up to the front door couldn't be confirmed at presstime.

THEY'RE NOT GONNA NEED A BIGGER BOAT
10/18/19

Milk & Honey boss Lucas Keller took a few hundred pals out on the water for 2019’s New Kids on the Yacht (with help from Warner Records, BMI and a bevy of beverage sponsors); it was a beautiful afternoon, and the throng of young creatives on board got their drink on, smoked hand-rolled cigars, danced and schmoozed the day away. 

Seen shortly before a quick run to the Caribbean for more rum are (l-r) M&H Head of International Peter Coquillard, songwriter Sebastian Kole (Alessia Cara), Warner Chappell A&R hitter Brandra Ringo and, puffing on a Cohiba Esplendido, host Keller.

Seen just before your humble editor begged for a Dramamine are (l-r) songwriter Brett McLaughlin (Troye Sivan, Selena Gomez, Carrie Underwood), Keller, HITS loser Simon Glickman and APG GM Angie Pagano.
