BIG DEAL GASSED ABOUT SINCLAIR

Big Deal Music Group has inked producer/songwriter/musician Jake Sinclair to a worldwide co-publishing agreement. In the photo, Big Deal’s Jamie Cerreta, Casey Robison and Kenny MacPherson form a triple-decker love sandwich around their new signing, while a Sinclair gas pump looms proudly behind them.

The Grammy-nominated Sinclair became adept in the art of the studio while engineering for Butch Walker on numerous big-name projects. After writing and producing “Harlem,” his first gold single, with New Politics followed by his first platinum single with 5 Seconds Of Summer’s “She Looks So Perfect,” Sinclair opened his own studio in Echo Park, where he produced his childhood fave Weezer’s White Album and Panic! at the Disco’s chart-topping Death of a Bachelor. More recently, he co-wrote and produced Panic!’s Pray for the Wicked, dropping 6/22.

“As a musician, engineer and producer, Jake has made a huge impact on contemporary music, working on some of the biggest hits of the last decade,” said BDMG partner Casey Robison. “What makes him an even more valuable collaborator to the artists he works with is that he’s also an accomplished writer and composer, working on a number of tracks over the years that have gone on to be #1 hits. We’re thrilled to have him in the Big Deal Family.”

Sinclair had a quip for the occasion: “My mom and dad always said that if I put in the hard work and didn't give up, that I could be a ‘big deal’ someday, but they were completely wrong. However, they'll be thrilled to hear that I've signed with Big Deal.”

Sinclair, who’s managed by Evan Taubenfeld at Crush, is currently on tour with Beck.
