Hit songwriter and producer Ben West has signed a joint worldwide publishing agreement with Warner/Chappell Music, the music publishing arm of Warner Music Group, and Altadena, busbee‘s music company that launched last year as a joint venture with Warner Bros. Records.

In addition to penning songs for hit artists across the pop, country, indie rock, and electronica genres, including P!nk, Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum, Carly Pearce, and JR JR, West has also found wide-ranging success in sync. His work has been featured on numerous high-profile television shows including 13 Reasons Why, Grey’s Anatomy, American Idol, Parenthood, General Hospital, One Tree Hill, Revenge, Younger, So You Think You Can Dance, and the feature film Bad Moms. His songs have also been placed in advertisements for BMW, Chevrolet, and McDonald’s, among others.

A Michigan-native who has been traveling regularly to Nashville for years, West has worked with many of the town’s top hitmakers. He currently resides in the Detroit area with his wife, Megan, and their four children.
