Warner Chappell Music has signed an exclusive, global publishing agreement with songwriter/producer Sean Douglas. Douglas was a co-writer on Thomas Rhett‘s 6x multi-platinum hit “Die A Happy Man.” He has also worked with Demi Lovato on “Sorry Not Sorry,” Jason Derulo on “Talk Dirty,” and with David Guetta on “Hey Mama,” among other works.
Los Angeles-based Douglas worked closely with Thomas Rhett on his album Life Changes, which became the first country release of 2017 to top the Billboard 200 chart. Douglas also worked on Lizzo’s “Like A Girl” and “Soulmate” from her Grammy-winning album Cuz I Love You, as well as songs including Sia’s “Original” and Selena Gomez’s “Ring.”
Warner Chappell Music Co-Chair and CEO, Guy Moot, said: “I’ve known Sean for quite some time, and I’m constantly impressed by the expanding range and constant growth of his talent. He has the rare gift of writing songs that transcend genre and time. A true collaborator and natural writer, he’s become a trusted and invaluable partner to so many emerging and legendary stars. We’re very proud to have him in the Warner Chappell family.”
Warner Chappell Music President of A&R, U.S., Ryan Press, and Vice President of A&R, Katy Wolaver, added: “We’re thrilled to welcome Sean back to the fold. He’s one of the most authentic songwriters on the scene, quick to embrace new challenges and eager to work with a diversity of artists and fellow songwriters across the music community. There’s no limit to what he can do, and we’re excited to work with him to take his career to new heights.”
Douglas noted: “What I love about being a songwriter is having the freedom to write in a different style every day and to keep growing musically. Guy, Ryan, Katy and the entire Warner Chappell team have been incredibly supportive in that pursuit, going above and beyond to champion my music and create new opportunities for it. I’m thrilled to be back and working with them again.”
