David Corlew and Bob Frank have formed a new Nashville-based publishing company, Corlew-Frank Music, with Scott Brown of The Scooter Brown Band as the group’s flagship songwriter. Publisher Kim Jones joins as the company’s Creative Director.

“Great songs are the basis of all we do. Recording and performing either makes us or breaks us,” says Corlew. “After selling my last catalog to BMG, I wanted to continue working in publishing, so I approached my 20-plus year partner in the label and distribution business, Bob Frank, and we decided to create Corlew-Frank Music. It made perfect sense to sign Scott Brown as our first writer, an artist we work together with through Bob Frank Distribution. Bringing publishing veteran Kim Jones into the mix made perfect sense, utilizing her experience in songs and writer development.”

Corlew’s previous publishing ventures include Kicking Bird Music, Bud Dog Music and the Corlew Music Group. Over the years, he’s worked with songwriters including including Chris Wallin, Keith Follesé, Tim Owens, Ben Stennis, Jason Sellers, and Jaron Boyer.

“David and I are looking forward to building Corlew-Frank Music into a preeminent independent publishing company,” says Frank. “He has a tremendous history of success and finding talented writers very early on in their development.”
