UNIVERSAL MUSIC PUBLISHING GROUP (UMPG) Chairman/CEO DAVID RENZER and BRENTWOOD-BENSON MUSIC PUBLISHING Pres. DALE MATHEWS announced TODAY (4/28) that UMPG has acquired the publishing assets of EMACK MUSIC, the publishing arm of GOTEE RECORDS. The EMACK MUSIC catalog includes RELIENT K, LUNA HALO, GRITS, JENNIFER KNAPP, AYEISHA, HOUSE OF HEROES, B.REITH and others. The companies will jointly publish future works from the label's new signings.
"I have a high regard for the value of this catalog and its artists and songwriters. But getting to work together with JOEL ELWOOD and TOBYMAC to help find and develop future talent made this opportunity even more appealing to me," said MATHEWS.
"TOBY and I felt that our future was better served in a partnership with the resources that DALE and his team provide for our staff and artist writers. We're proud and excited to join the UNIVERSAL MUSIC PUBLISHING GROUP/BBMP team and look forward to the future of developing artists, writers and producers with them," said GOTEE's JOEY ELWOOD.
UMPG is a leader in the Contemporary Christian/Gospel sector through its ownership of BRENTWOOD-BENSON MUSIC PUBLISHING. BRENTWOOD-BENSON is also active in the Praise & Worship market through its GREATWORSHIPSONGS.COM imprint.
