The Other Songs ventures into publishing division in partnership with Kobalt to develop songwriters & artists

Kobalt has signed a worldwide agreement with independent British music company The Other Songs.

The deal includes publishing administration, creative services and sync for all of The Other Songs’ catalog/future works.

The Other Songs is a live music event where artists, producers and top executives of the music industry come to hear available songs, performed by the artists and songwriters who wrote them.

Since its inception, these events have seen more than 100 songwriters perform in the UK and US with some of the world’s most successful songwriters performing their songs.

 “The Other Songs have developed a strong, distinctive brand over a relatively short time and we are looking forward to enhancing that through our global support and expertise.”
