DOWNTOWN MUSIC SERVICES GROWS ITS ROSTER

Downtown Music Services, the entity formed earlier this year by the combination of Downtown Music Publishing and artist services company DashGo, has announced a slate of new signings and re-ups for distribution, publishing and administration.

New administration signings include top songwriters Samuel Dixon (Adele, Sia, Christina Aguilera, Carly Rae Jepsen) and Jimmy Hogarth (Amy Winehouse, Duffy, Paolo Nutini) and blues legend Taj Mahal. Jason Isbell, Tori Amos and Ween are among the artists who have renewed their admin deals, while Cheat Codes, American Authors and Hunter Hayes have inked distribution agreements.

“I am delighted that with Downtown Music Services we have brought together two outstanding businesses that have made huge steps over the last 10 years in the artist and songwriter space,” said Mike Smith, Global President, Downtown Music Services. “I have always gone to work with the intention of providing the best possible service for the songwriters and artists I worked with. For me, copyright ownership was irrelevant; it was always about serving the music creators and helping them realize their dreams. We are entirely focused on that at DMS.”

Downtown Music reoriented its business in April to focus solely on artist services, selling its publishing catalog to Concord Music. The 145,000 songs therein included tracks by Jay-Z, Madonna, Lady Gaga and David Bowie.
