Savannah Music Group Hires Mulch Brothers For Licensing
November 11, 2010 at 9:56 AM (PT)
MARK and NICK MULCH of Country duo THE MULCH BROTHERS will be handling the licensing for their record label and music publisher, SAVANNAH MUSIC GROUP (SMG).
Five years ago they left their respective careers, handling licensing in NEW YORK CITY, to pursue writing and recording their own music. Now as MGH MUSIC SERVICES, they have signed with SMG to license existing SAVANNAH songs and recordings for commercials, film and television as well as to oversee the creation of new material.
In the past, the duo have licensed music from such acts as ROLLING STONES and RAY DAVIES of THE KINKS to companies that include CHEVROLET, DAYS INN, BACARDI, BUD LIGHT, SPRINT and COCA-COLA. They have also worked on national advertising campaigns with STEVIE WONDER and LL COOL J, and MARK also brought MICHAEL MCDONALD and JAMES TAYLOR to MCI while working with the music supervision company CREATIVE LICENSE in NEW YORK CITY.
"We are excited to be able to start up this new division at SAVANNAH," said MARK. "This will be even more meaningful than when we did licensing in the past because we bring to the mix the layered perspective of being two professional musicians signed to the label and publishing company as artists and songwriters."
"SAVANNAH is a nimble, innovative company," said NICK. "Therefore, they have the advantage of being able to grant licenses for both songs and master recordings more quickly than traditional publishers or record companies -- with the added ability to write new material for specific film, TV and commercial projects."
This is the first foray for SMG into licensing. It currently consists of both a music publishing and a record company based in NASHVILLE, TN.
