INgrooves Launches Music Publishing Division Under Olivier Chastan
July 19, 2013 at 7:57 AM (PT)
INgrooves has launched a music publishing division to further augment the suite of services available to its more than 4,000 clients worldwide. The new division will be headed by OLIVIER CHASTAN, former VP of VP RECORDS and President of GREENSLEEVES RECORDS & PUBLISHING, where he worked with artists such as SEAN PAUL, RIHANNA, JAY-Z, THE BLACK EYED PEAS, CHRIS BROWN, DAMIEN MARLEY, DJ DIPLO, NO DOUBT, AKON, MAJOR LAZER, and 50 CENT among others.
The new division will provide INgrooves clients access to a complete array of music publishing services including direct registration and collection with societies worldwide and a suite of creative services from synchronization to A&R. The new music publishing services unit will be seamlessly integrated into INgrooves' web-based Client Console, giving independent labels and artists complete control, transparency and visibility over their recorded music and publishing copyrights all from a centralized location.
INgrooves Founder/CEO, ROBB MCDANIELS said, "As the retail ecosystem continues to fragment into multiple sources of revenue for our clients, INgrooves is perfectly positioned to leverage our technology platform and global reach to monetize and collect from these various partners that are also paying copyright owners. Many INgrooves artists and label clients control some or all of their publishing rights and have asked us to assist them in administering these rights because much of the data that's needed to effectively identify and collect monies owed is already handled by our ONE Digital platform. This is a natural evolution for us."
"I'm very excited to be joining INgrooves to launch this new endeavor," said CHASTAN. "I have known Robb and the team for over 6 years and am confident that we will deliver a world-class platform and service. Being part of INgrooves will allow me to build the modern and technology-driven publishing operation that I have been envisioning for years. I look forward to offering amazing service to existing INgrooves' clients and all great writers and artists."
