Rezonant Music Publishing has purchased the Extreme Writers Group catalog.
As part of the agreement, Warner/Chappell and Big Loud Publishing will each maintain their 50 percent ownership in Extreme. Extreme Writers Group catalog includes chart-topping songs such as “Here Comes Goodbye” (Rascal Flatts), “Why” (Jason Aldean), “I Loved Her First” (Heartland) and “Lost In This Moment” (Big & Rich). The catalog also includes George Strait’s CMA Single of the Year “I Saw God Today.” The catalog also includes Christian hits including “The Motions” and “More,” both performed by Matthew West.
Michael Martin (Sr. VP, ASCAP), Jason Houser and Tim DuBois formed Extreme Writers Group in 2000. Representing almost two dozen writers during the company’s decade of activity, Extreme helped launch the career of two-time BMI Country Songwriter Of the Year Rodney Clawson, as well as ASCAP Country Award-winning songwriters Elliott Park and Clint Lagerberg.
“Our catalog started with Tim Wipperman in 2000 and we are excited to have him involved in the next chapter,” said Martin. “We are thankful to see Extreme become part of Rezonant, a publishing company that shares our original vision to empower and inspire creative people to write songs that will have a long-term impact.”
“It’s wonderful to circle back and be able to work with the Extreme guys again,” Rezonant Music Publishing CEO Tim Wipperman said. “This catalog is full of unrecorded hits written by some of the best writers in the business. I look forward to working with Warner/Chappell and Big Loud Publishing to give these songs life.”
