Music publisher Reservoir has teamed with Nashville-based, Americana/Roots boutique music publisher One Riot, to sign and develop new songwriters and manage writer catalogs. One Riot is headquartered out of Reservoir’s Nashville office and has creative offices in Los Angeles and New York.
The first signing under the Reservoir and One Riot joint venture is duo The Secret Sisters. The deal includes future titles from the sibling duo, including their Brandi Carlile-produced recent project Saturn Return.
“We are very excited to have signed our very first publishing deal as songwriters and to be joining the One Riot family. It’s been our desire to take our songwriting to the next level and we can’t wait to see what this partnership will inspire in us,” said The Secret Sisters. “Grateful for a team of good folks who believe in us!”
“One Riot was established to focus on the music that we hold closest to our hearts; music that embodies honesty and authenticity,” said Founder Amy Patton. “That is the legacy of many of the incredible artists in this genre and is the core of what we hope to cultivate within our community of songwriters. We couldn’t think of a better way to launch than with The Secret Sisters, who embody everything we love about this genre, as the first signing along with Reservoir, who shared our vision right out of the gate.”
“Reservoir’s expertise in creative, administration, and synch coupled with One Riot’s passion for the music and songwriters in this space, is a winning combination,” adds Reservoir EVP, Creative John Ozier. “Americana music spans a broad spectrum of styles including folk, country, blues, roots, gospel, soul, rock, and more, but one thing it all has in common is that it is song-driven music. The genre is often underserved due to the ambiguity of its definition, but it is our privilege to work alongside One Riot to amplify and celebrate the amazing musicians in this space, starting with The Secret Sisters.”
