SONY PUB'S EM DASH
7/26/22

Sony Publishing has inked a global deal with singer/songwriter Em Beihold. The Republic artist's provocative "Numb Little Bug" dropped earlier this year and went gold, helping to fuel considerable buzz and no small amount of Grammy chatter. The track is now hurtling toward the Top 5 at Pop radio. Beihold's debut EP, Egg in the Backseat (featuring new single "Too Precious"), dropped last week.

"Songwriting is the core of my artistry, and I'm so grateful to call Sony Music Publishing home," declared Beihold, who'll be joining King Princess on the road this fall. She further expressed her excitement to be with the pubbery that houses some of her favorite creators, including Regina Spektor and Sara Bareilles.

"Em is a natural-born songwriter, with an innate understanding of how to succinctly translate her thoughts and emotions into a song," proclaimed SMP SVP, Creative Jennifer Knoepfle and Creative Coordinator Adam Ikner, who are without peer in issuing unison quotes. "We are pleased to welcome her to SMP and are excited to be a part of her journey. And we will make sure that journey never goes anywhere near HITS."

JUSTIN TRANTER ON THE ALTERNATIVE RUNWAY
7/25/22

Justin Tranter is having an Alternative moment. 

The gifted songwriter, artist and activist, best known as a Pop hitmaker, is currently enjoying big radio love at Modern Rock, as Måneskin's "SUPERMODEL" sits at #1 at the format and Imagine Dragons' "Enemy" is Top 5.

Range-repped Tranter co-wrote "SUPERMODEL" with the Roman rockers of Måneskin and producers Max Martin, Rami Yacoub and Sylvester Sivertsen and co-penned "Enemy" with Imagine Dragons, rapper JID and producers Mattman & Robin.

Meanwhile, JT's work can also be heard on the soundtrack to Billy Porter's directorial debut, Anything's Possible (now streaming on Amazon Prime); Tranter co-exec-produced the ST, which boasts contributions from Porter,  Shea DiamondEm BeiholdDNCEMIKAKim PetrasRyland James and Tassia Zappia and is also a showcase for the versatile creator's Facet Publishing. The apparently indefatigable tunesmith also contributed four songs to the soundtrack of the Netflix film Purple Hearts, starring Sofia Carson and slated to drop on 7/29.

 

Justin was also a cover model for HITS' Pride special in 2021, and seems to have weathered the association with our disreputable magazine with typical aplomb.
