House of Hassle Publishing Gets Nashville Office

House of Hassle Publishing, which has offices in New York City and on the West Coast, has opened a new office in Nashville, led by Lynn Gann. The Nashville operation will be focused on plugging House of Hassle songs and artists, as well as pairing House of Hassle writers with Music City’s local talent.

House of Hassle Publishing also recently signed a number of writers to publishing deals, including rockers Zach Schwartz (of Rogue Wave and Release The Sunbird), Menomena, Lucero, Two Gallants, Paul Banks (of Interpol), and Grizzly Bear.

“These are exciting times for House of Hassle,” says Sarah Smith, head of House of Hassle’s West Coast operations. “We’re very proud of our roster, and these new signings take the company to the next level. We feel more than ever that we’re in a great position to attract special opportunities for our artists as we begin this next phase of business.”

These newly signed writers join a solid roster of songwriters under the House of Hassle umbrella: Black Lips, Sharon Van Etten, Mates of State, The War on Drugs, Jennifer O’Connor, Ra Ra Riot, The Tallest Man on EarthSuperchunk, Tortoise, Antietam, Trans Am, Red House Painters, Vivian Girls, Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears, and Black Mountain/Pink Mountaintops.

House of Hassle was borne from a union between Ken Weinstein‘s Big Hassle Media and Bank Robber Music, a boutique TV/film licensing firm representing multiple labels in independent rock.
