BARKER DRUMS UP PUB DEAL AT WCM
7/22/21

Drum roll, please! Travis Barker has parked his compositions at Warner Chappell Music, signing an exclusive worldwide administration deal for his songs written over the last three decades. 

The Kevin Wolff-managed drummer/composer for Blink-182, Transplants, The Aquabats and +44 has also co-written and produced songs for Machine Gun Kelly, Bebe Rexha, Dirty Heads, Swae Lee and others. He recently worked with Warner Chappell songwriter jxdn on his debut album, Tell Me About Tomorrow, through DTA Records, Barker’s joint venture with Elektra Music Group.

“Travis's authenticity has paved the way for him to continue to grow and endure as one of punk rock’s most charismatic and influential figures,”  said Warner Chappell Music SVPs of A&R, Greg Sowders and Katy Wolaver. “Not only did his music define an entire era, but his innovative, ongoing contributions to the contemporary musical landscape continue to shape culture. Travis has always found a way to infuse the DIY spirit of punk into every possible genre with amazing results.”

Warner Chappell Music President of A&R, U.S., Ryan Press, noted: “His music popularized pop-punk in the early 2000s, and as his career has continued to evolve, his influence has only gotten stronger. And think of how many tattoo parlors he keeps in business.”
