SONY/ATV AND WORK OF ART TEAM TO SIGN HARRIS

Sony/ATV and Work of Art have partnered to sign Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer Scott Harris to a co-publishing deal. Harris has written top-charting hits for artists such as The Chainsmokers, Selena Gomez and P!nk, and is known as one of Shawn Mendes’ key collaborators.

Harris’ signing establishes a creative partnership between Sony/ATV and Sony Music’s Work of Art, which was founded in 2018 by Arista Records President & CEO David Massey as a publishing-management operation with a personalized A&R approach. Work of Art is led by Clio Massey, who has held the position of GM since its inception.

Sony/ATV Chairman and CEO Jon Platt stated, “Scott is a prolific songwriter with an impressive track record of hits. Sony/ATV is pleased to collaborate with Clio, David and the innovative team at Work of Art on supporting and advancing Scott’s amazing journey as a songwriter.”

Clio Massey said, “Scott is an exceptional, world-class songwriter and it is so exciting to be working with him during this next chapter of his incredible career. It is an honor to have him as part of the Work of Art family - and I’m very much looking forward to working with Jon and the Sony/ATV team on this.”

David Massey added, “We are so happy to be partnering with our friends at Sony/ATV to sign Scott Harris, one the most talented, prolific and versatile songwriters in our business. Additionally, we are excited to work with Scott’s longtime manager Zach Gurka, to help bring Scott’s remarkable career to even greater heights globally.”

“I’m excited to be part of such a great team. Clio and I have become good friends over the years, and I’m psyched and grateful to officially get to work together,” said Harris.

Harris co-wrote Mendes' multi-Platinum single “In My Blood,” and his past collaborations also include The Chainsmokers' single “Don’t Let Me Down,” which reached #1 on US Top 40 charts.
