Anacrusis Inks Admin Deal With Kobalt

Nashville-based publisher Anacrusis has signed an exclusive, global administration deal with Kobalt Music Group. Anacrusis was started by Liz Rogers, who now serves as Creative Director. The Anacrusis-Kobalt partnership will be managed by Kobalt’s Nashville office, under GM Jesse Willoughby.  Kobalt will be handling admin for Anacrusis’ catalog, which includes pop artist Drew Southwell, who recently collaborated with Steve Aoki, and has garnered attention from Timbaland.

“We could not be more excited to partner with Kobalt,” said Rogers. “They are a true leader in merging technology and music, while maintaining valuable relationships and service, focusing on the songwriter. “We have exciting opportunities on the horizon and Kobalt is the perfect partner to help take Anacrusis to the next level.”   

Anacrusis will be hosting a writing camp and official showcase at the Sundance Film Festival featuring both Anacrusis and Kobalt writers, as well as presenting The Nashville House at SXSW again in March.
