Spirit Music Group has acquired a portion of the publishing catalog of top Nashville Christian songwriter and producer, Jason Ingram.

Announced today (June 19) by David Renzer, Chairman, Spirit Music Group, the deal includes a catalog of songs Ingram wrote under the Showdown/Sony joint venture. Ingram’s copyrights include Bebo Norman’s “I Will Lift My Eyes,” Salvador’s “Shine,” Chris Tomlin’s “White Flag” and “I Will Follow,” Hillsong’s “Forever Reign,” and Building 429’s “Where I Belong,” to name a few.

Ingram was named SESAC’s 2007 Christian Songwriter of the Year, and received nominations for addition to Gospel Music Association (Dove Award) Songwriter of the Year and Producer of the Year.

Renzer commented, “We are pleased to add these songs to the Spirit Music Group family. With this latest acquisition, we further extend our reach into the thriving Nashville market.”

In July 2014, Spirit Music Group acquired Cal IV Entertainment, the established Nashville-based independent music publisher, production, and artist management company. The move marked Spirit’s first official presence on Music Row. In February, Spirit acquired the publishing assets of West Main Music, a leading independent Christian/Contemporary Praise & Worship publishing catalog, including “Never Once” co-written by Ingram and recorded by Matt Redman; and “Help Me Find It” co-written by Ingram and recorded by The Sidewalk Prophets.

Spirit Music Group is headquartered in New York with offices in London, Los Angeles, Nashville and the Netherlands. Spirit is a portfolio company of Pegasus Capital Advisors, the New York-based private equity fund manager that has been providing creative capital and strategic solutions to growth companies since 1996.
