EMI MUSIC PUBLISHING has signed a joint venture agreement with IVOR NOVELLO Award-winning songwriter PLAN B, to launch a new publishing company called TEMPERAMENTAL MUSIC.
PLAN B [Real name BEN DREW] said, "I've always wanted to be in control of my destiny and build my own empire and this is one step closer to that. I feel I can help young musicians progress and plant some positive seeds in their heads. Before I made it I was trying to help other people, the only difference is now I’ve got a budget."
EMI MUSIC PUBLISHING Pres./U.K. and European A&R GUY MOOT said, "You have to have a huge amount of respect for all that BEN has achieved not just as an artist but as a writer in the last five years. He knows what it takes to become a successful writer, and he recognizes real talent when he sees it. He will bring the same strong creative vision to his publishing company that he brings to everything he else he does, and we at EMI MUSIC PUBLISHING are looking forward to building this new long-term relationship with him to maximize the opportunity for the writers he signs to have their music heard on a global platform."
