Publishing veteran Mark Friedman (Chrysalis Music, Red Stripe Plane Music, Verse Music), label exec David Robkin (Bigger Picture Group) and manager Larry Mazer (Emily West, Kiss, Breaking Benjamin, Lamb of God) have announced the formation of Deluge Music, a boutique publishing company with offices in Nashville and Los Angeles. The company will be signing writers and artists in the country, pop and rock genres.
Initial signings include Oran Thornton, Christine Connolly, and Kevin Savigar, a four-time ASCAP Award winner and the recipient of multi-Gold and Platinum album awards for sales in excess of 40 million units. Savigar co-wrote and co-produced Rod Stewart’s latest release Another Country.
Friedman will serve as the President of Deluge Music, splitting his time between Los Angeles and Nashville. Stephanie Greene will be at the helm of the Nashville office in addition to continuing with her own company, Gravity Gone Music. Stephanie was previously with Combustion Music and Chrysalis Music. “Stephanie was such an asset for me at Chrysalis Music and I’ve been waiting years for the opportunity to work with her again!” said Friedman.
“We decided to form Deluge Music over breakfast a little more than a month ago. We wanted to follow up with our previous success and join forces to create a publishing company that is worldwide in its reach but ‘boutique’ in terms of how we work with our writers,” said Friedman. “By forming Deluge Music, we’re taking the next step towards making our vision a reality.”
Deluge Music’s Nashville office is located at 40 Music Square West and can be reached at 818-448-8491.
