STONES THROW PARTNERS WITH SONGTRUST
5/10/21

Stones Throw Publishing has inked a new global pub administration deal with Songtrust.

As part of the agreement, Songtrust will administer the catalog of Stones Throw’s roster, which includes Grammy-winners Knxwledge (aka NxWorries) and Kiefer, as well as Mndsgn, Los Retros, Silk Rhodes and Peanut Butter Wolf, among others. 

Knxwledge is best known for his work with artists like Anderson.Paak, Earl Sweatshirt, Action Bronson and Kendrick Lamar, including his tracks “Suede,” “Lyk Dis” and “Momma,” while Kiefer has worked with Paak and SiR, among others. Additionally, the roster has credits across artists like CHAI, Tyler the Creator and more.

“We are pleased to be partnering with Songtrust as we continue our aim to deliver the most comprehensive collection services to our writers,” said Stones Throw GM, Jason McGuire. “With Songtrust’s ability to scour all corners of the globe and provide transparent reporting, we look forward to delivering even better service and results to our writers and artists."

“I am thrilled to bring Stones Throw Publishing and their incredible roster to Songtrust, and to ensure that all their artists—from those that are well-established to the emerging artists they work to develop—receive best-in-class global publishing administration,” said Lara Baker, Songtrust Director of Business Development, UK/Ireland.

Stones Throw Publishing is the publishing arm of independent label Stones Throw Records, which was founded in 1996 by DJ Peanut Butter Wolf. It joins pubcos like Sub Pop Publishing, Merge Publishing and ZJS Music Publishing (Average Joes Entertainment) associated with independent labels to have partnered with Songtrust.

Just last year, Songtrust writers were involved in 40 RIAA-certified gold and platinum songs and were nominated for 14 Grammys in this year’s ceremony.
