TORONTO-based OLE has expanded its deal with renowned GRAMMY-winning super-producer, songwriter, and solo artist TIMBALAND from administration to a worldwide co-publishing agreement.
The two began working together in 2012, and the relationship has progressively expanded to include not only TIMBALAND's ever-growing catalog of hits but also an expanding roster of new songwriting talent through the OLE-BLUESTONE publishing co-venture, launched in 2013 to discover and develop new songwriters. So far, the partnership has signed rapper and songwriter GARLAND "SEBASTIAN' MOSLEY, who shares co-writing credits on JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE's hit track "Mirrors," and DAVID BRATTON, the songwriter behind the 2014 gospel hit "Every Praise," as well as alternative rock band OK MAYDAY, hip-hop/R&B producer/songwriter MAURICE "VELLY' CONAWAY and rapper JUSTIN "CAPO" ANDREWS.
TIMBALAND has three GRAMMYs to his credit, including Best R&B Song two years running for BEYONCE's "Drunk in Love" featuring JAY Z and TIMBERLAKE's "Pusher Love Girl," as well as multiple recent ASCAP awards, including the 2015 ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Songwriter of the Year. He also took on the role of Executive Music Producer of the hit FOX-TV show "Empire."
Commented OLE Chairman/CEO ROBERT OTT: "TIMBALAND has influenced and shaped an entire era of music, and we welcome this expansion of our successful relationship. From both a music and business vantage point, we look forward to growing with him."
Added TIMBALAND: "OLE has been great to work with, and it only made sense to further our partnership."
