Eclipse Music Group has elevated Penny Gattis to Partner. As Co-Owner, Gattis will continue to oversee the publishing division while assuming a larger role in the overall strategic direction for the firm including the Eclipse Management and Penumbra Records divisions.
Gattis joined Eclipse as General Manager of Publishing in 2020, and has been instrumental in expanding the roster while garnering cuts with major artists such as Jake Owen, Morgan Wallen and Luke Bryan, as well as sync placements including leading brands Lexus, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell.
“We have worked hard to develop the right strategy and the right environment to nurture creative talent,” says Kurt Locher, Principal of Eclipse Music Group. “Penny has the perfect combination of creativity, tenacity and relationships to support our creative clients and to advance Eclipse to the next level.”
Gattis, a graduate of the Mike Curb College of Entertainment & Music Business at Belmont University, began her career as Assistant to Hall of Fame songwriter Bob DiPiero. She went on to serve as Creative Director of Tom-Leis Music, Director of Writer/Publisher Relations at BMI and Senior Director at Round Hill Music. Gattis is actively involved in the Nashville community, including her recent appointment to the Board of Directors for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville for which she chaired the recent Music Row Build campaign.
“Penny brings an obsession to deliver the best service to our writer clients and to identify and place the best songs in this ever-challenging environment for music publishing. I look forward to this next chapter for Eclipse,” Locher adds.
“I’m thrilled to continue representing Eclipse Music Group as partner,” shares Gattis. “Our values of unparalleled service, creativity and opportunity will remain at the forefront. With over 60,000 songs released every day, the Eclipse team’s nimble ability and hands-on approach to strategy and execution is more important than ever to capture opportunities for our clients. We will continue to support our existing world class talent roster while adding selective new signings and catalog acquisitions.”
