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.

Roberts’ efforts will focus in the publishing as well as expanding to the recording, branding, and management areas; he'll be based in the company’s L.A. offices and will report to eOne’s Global President of Music, Chris Taylor.

The 20-year veteran previously served as VP of A&R at Virgin Records and Astralwerks, and did a stint at C3 Management working with artists Bassnectar and Griz. Other projects include Nosaj Thing, coordinating collaborations with Kid Cudi, The xx, Chance the Rapper, and Kendrik Lamar, while also producing the Grammy-nominated series Verve Remixed and a forthcoming Beatles covers project.

"Todd has demonstrated an ability to deliver at a very high level throughout his entire career," commented Taylor. "Artists, songwriters and producers that have been privileged to work with him know he’s a select talent who combines business acumen with creative that leads to greatness."

Roberts added: “For a long time, I’ve sought to be part of a company looking toward the future. I think eOne is uniquely positioned to be that company. And given their futuristic perspective, I feel certain I will eventually commute to work by jet pack.”
