SONY/ATV LANDS AN OCEAN IN THE UK
2/27/19

Sony/ATV has signed the catalogues of British heroes Billy Ocean and Slade among a series of new deals with legacy songwriters and artists. 

The company's London-based Catalogue team has also secured new agreements with talent including Billy Bragg, Divine Comedy, The Real Thing, Embrace, Doves, Swing Out Sister, Matt Bianco and The Bluetones

Collectively these artists have scored more than 100 Top 40 singles in the UK across five decades as well as multiple chart-topping albums reaching global success. 

SATV VP A&R/Catalogue Fran Malyan said "I am extremely proud that all these wonderful songwriters and artists have decided to entrust their amazing catalogues of songs with SATV. Catalogue is a real priority for us, it is all about being proactive."

The new deals announced by the Catalogue team cover songwriters newly signed to Sony/ATV as well as renewals or expansions of agreements with talent already on the roster.

The biggest prize in the announcement of new deals is an agreement to represent the catalogue of the Trinidadian-born, British-raised Grammy-winning artist Billy Ocean, who is one of the most successful UK-based artists of all time in the US. His songs “Caribbean Queen (No More Love On The Run)”, “There’ll Be Sad Songs (To Make You Cry)” and “Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car” all reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, while he also scored a number of hits in the UK, including the chart-topper “When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going”. He received the International Achievement honour at the 2018 Ivor Novello Awards.
