Scooter Braun‘s Ithaca Holdings has acquired Richard Stumpf‘s Atlas Music Publishing, home to Brandi Carlile, as well as tracks from Ed Sheeran, Drake, Nicki Minaj, John Legend and more.
Atlas will continue to do business out of its offices in Nashville, New York and Los Angeles.
“Richard has built an incredible publishing business with Atlas and we are excited to bring him and his team into the family,” said Braun. “By working with Richard and his team, we will have a direct line to some of the most creative writers making the publishing process more streamlined and personal.”
Stumpf added, “I’ve admired the work that Scooter has done over the years and his commitment for doing right by talent. He has the pulse of the music industry like no other. It was clear to me that beyond the business, Scooter was someone who genuinely wants to be part of the greater good. We look forward to many successful years together with Scooter, Allison Kaye and the rest of the SB team.”
The news follows the recent revelation that Braun’s Ithaca Holdings has teamed with former BMG president Zach Katz for the investment group Raised In Space Enterprises.
In September 2018, Atlas Music Publishing signed Carlile and announced the opening of a Nashville office run by Tracy Gershon.
