From left are her manager  Salomon Palacios, UMPG producer Nely El Arma Secreta, Mariah, UMPG President, Latin America & US Latin, Alexandra Lioutikoff and UMPG VP, Creative & Synch, Latin Music, Ana Rosa Santiago.

Latin singer-songwriter Mariah has signed an exclusive global publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing Group. Mariah Angeliq, a 19-year old Miami-born, Puerto Rican-Cuban artist signed to Universal Music Latino, has seen her songs surpass 25m collective streams on one year; she has more than 1m monthly listeners on Spotify.

Her biggest hit single is “Perreíto,” and she has collaborated on “Lo Prohibido” with Casper Mágico and on “Costear (Remix)” with Jhay Cortez, Myke Towers, Casper Mágico and Ñengo Flow.

“Mariah is a star in the making whose talent, fierce creativity and determination will empower her to go the distance,” said UMPG President of Latin America and US Latin, Alexandra Lioutikoff. “With her playful, mixed-genre hits, she is breaking boundaries and bringing a welcome new sound to the Latin Urban music scene.”

Pictured (l to r, back row): Jake Torrey, Anthony Russo, Fresh, Jesse Saint John, Adam K; (front row) Tommy English, Tyler Armes, Ben Margulies, Jordan Bromley, Quinn XCII, Jocelyn Alice and Justin Shukat.

Primary Wave held a writers' retreat last week in Montecito, CA. The five-day event took place at Ben Margulies’ studio Secret Garden. Artists and songwriters in attendance included JeremihGREYDante Jones, Livvi FrancQuinn XCII and more.

There were also several industry speakers, including Janine Scalise Boyd (Starz), Jordan Bromley (attorney/Music Artist Coalition), Matt Colon (YMU) and Arjan Timmermans (Apple Music). The event focused on industry awareness but was also about wellness; a yoga instructor was brought in to offer classes each morning before writing sessions began. Kenny Loggins stopped by to chat with the writers and wound up staying to write, and ASCAP flew in Alex Falk to perform as well.

Later that evening, a shaman administered ayahuasca from a bubbling cauldron over the fire pit, while chanting hits from the pubbery's catalog.

10/28/19

UMPG Nashville has inked Justin Ebach to a global pub deal. Previously named SESAC’s 2017 Songwriter of the Year, Ebach has penned four #1 tracks including Dustin Lynch’s “Good Girl,” Brett Young’s “Here Tonight,” and “Sleep Without You,” as well as Jordan Davis’ “Singles You Up.”

Other co-writes by the Florida native have been recorded by the likes of Lady Antebellum, Luke Bryan, Jake Owen, and Dan & Shay, as well as rising artists like Jimmie Allen, Mitchell Tenpenny, and Maddie & Tae.

“Ebach has quickly become one of Nashville’s premiere multi-genre writer-producers. We could not be more honored that he chose to bring his immense talents to UMPG,” said UMPG Nashville’s Senior Creative Director Missy Roberts. Ebach adds, “Missy Roberts has been someone I’ve admired as a publisher for many years. Troy Tomlinson taking over leadership really confirmed that UMPG is where I want to be in this new creative season.”
