HIPGNOSIS SNAGS TUINFORT CATALOG

Hipgnosis Songs Fund has acquired the catalog of Giorgio Tuinfort. The Surinam-born, Netherlands-based writer/producer has co-written with David Guetta, Gwen Stefani, Sia, Emeli Sandé, Nicki Minaj, Afrojack, Martin Garrix, Rihanna, Avicii, Usher, Will.i.am, Akon and Lionel Richie.

The 182-song catalog contains 23 chart-toppers, including six with Guetta. Along the way, Tuinfort has won 30 BMI Songwriter Awards.

“Giorgio is arguably the most underrated hit songwriter of the last 20 years,” said Merck Mercuriadis, Founder of Hipgnosis and its investment advisor, The Family (Music) Limited. “He could just as easily be composing a piano concerto as co-writing magnificent pop like ‘The Sweet Escape’ for Gwen Stefani or ‘One Last Time’ for Ariana Grande. He has quietly been the partner of choice for everyone from Akon to David Guetta and has been instrumental, literally, in their incredible successes. For me, ‘Titanium’ is as sophisticated as pop can get. Giorgio’s work is sublime.”

“To entrust someone with your musical life's work is like entrusting someone with your child; only a person with integrity and high values can bear that responsibility,” Tuinfort noted. “That’s Merck to me. A visionary, but most of all a man who recognizes the value of one of mankind’s greatest gifts—music. My catalog is simply in the best hands it could be.”
