HOMING IN ON HONUA
4/13/17

Ron Moss—formerly SVP at Rondor/Universal Music Publishing—and Norweigan producer Andreas “Axident” Schuller—a two-time Grammy nominee—are celebrating their independent music publishing and management company Honua Music’s seventh year in business. The two have been stealthily stalking the music business with Axident’s tracks, which include Jason Derulo f/Snoop Dogg’s “Wiggle,” Pitbull f/John Ryan’s “Fireball,” Sage the Gemini’s “Now & Later,” Tim McGraw’s “The View” and Justin Bieber’s “Company,” which earned two Grammy nominations.

Axident (pictured bottom right) and Moss (top left), whose A&M background in artist and creative development has proven to be beyond valuable, have a strong global roster that features producer/songwriter/artist Gladius (New Zealand), Big Taste (New Zealand), Mizwetu (Zimbabwe) and Larus Aransen (Iceland). Collectively, Honua has seen more than 10m in streams and track sales.

If you’re interested in learning more about Honua and development in general, you can catch Moss at ASCAP’s I Create Music Expo, where he’ll be speaking as part of the Independent Music Publishers panel. That goes down 4/15 at 9:30am.

Next up for Honua? There’s an Axident and Gladius track (with Johnny Yukon and Gizzle, plus DZL and Ricky Reed) and Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign & Sage the Gemini’s “Don’t Get Much Better,” which is included on the Fate of the Furious soundtrack—out 4/14.

And in case you were wondering, “Honua” translates to “world” in Hawaiian. Meanwhile, “HITS employee” still translates to “total shmuck” in Weasel.
