12/10/18

Sony/ATV has extended its worldwide deal with L.A.-based Swedish songwriter Noonie Bao, who's written hits for Camila Cabello, David Guetta, Zedd & Alessia Cara and more.

The long-term agreement includes Zedd & Alessia Cara smash "Stay," Cabello's "Never Be the Same"—now two-times platinum in the U.S.—Rita Ora's "Let You Love Me"—currently Top 5 in the U.K.—and future compositions.

“It has been incredible to watch Noonie’s growth as she has matured into one of the most accomplished topliners and lyricists in the world today," announced U.K. Managing Director and President, Worldwide Creative Guy Moot. "She has already created an unbelievable catalogue of songs, but we know that there is still so much more to come from her.”

“We are so thrilled to continue our relationship with Noonie," added SVP, Co-Head of West Coast A&R Amanda Hill, who serves as Bao’s U.S.-based A&R. "She is an incredibly gifted songwriter mixed with the heart and soul of a beautiful human being which makes it all that more wonderful to be in business with her.”

PULSE FOR THE WIN
12/7/18

Silver Lake’s very own Pulse Music Group was named Indie Publisher of the Year on  12/6 at the AIMP awards. Held at BMI’s offices, the AIMP L.A. Chapter Holiday Awards, Mixer, and Benefit had a slate of qualified indie publishers vote to present Pulse the award with overwhelming support. Among their biggies were Grammy-nominated smashes like Maroon 5's "Girls Like You" and Camila Cabello's "Havana" (both co-written by Starrah) and Travis Scott's monster "Sicko Mode" (co-written by OZ). Having had the Top 10 industry marketshare for music publishers every quarter in 2018, Pulses’ co-CEOs Josh AbrahamScott Cutler and team have had quite a successful year. Josh, Scott and colleague/super-songwriter Anne Preven are joined in the pic above by PEN Music Group's Michael Eames and FujiPacific Music's Hico Koike, who later broke out their set of limited-edition collectible trading cards representing MVPs in the history of publishing.

Also honored at the event was Michelle Lewis, songwriter and Co-Founder of SONA, who received a special award, the “Individual Award in Support of Songwriters & Publishers,” recognizing her efforts with the MMA. A portion of ticket proceeds from last night benefitted the AIMP Linda Komorsky Liker Scholarship Fund. The event also included a food and toy drive benefiting the City of Hope and a local food shelter.
