Nashville-based Savannah Music Group announced that Mark and Nick Mulch of the Mulch Brothers will handle the licensing for the label and music publishing company. The Mulch Brothers, moonlighting as MGH Music Services, will license existing Savannah songs for commercials, film and television and will also oversee the creation of new material.
“We are excited to be able to start up this new division at Savannah,” says Mark Mulch. “This will be even more meaningful than when we did licensing in the past because we bring to the mix the layered perspective of being two professional musicians signed to the label and publishing company as artists and songwriters.”
“Savannah is a nimble, innovative company,” adds Nick Mulch. “Therefore, they have the advantage of being able to grant licenses for both songs and master recordings more quickly than traditional publishers or record companies-with the added ability to write new material for specific film, TV and commercial projects.”
The Mulch Brothers have worked on national advertising campaigns with Stevie Wonder, LL Cool J, Michael McDonald and James Taylor. They have licensed music from the Rolling Stones and the Kinks’ Ray Davies to companies including Chevrolet, Days Inn, Bacardi, Bud Light, Sprint and Coca-Cola.
“This partnership will create significant new revenue opportunities for Savannah writers and artists as well as for the company itself,” says Ed Salamon, chief executive officer of Savannah Music Group.
