Billboard: Downtown Records Launches Immortal Music Publishing

Written by

Two years after purchasing Downtown Records, co-founders Josh Deutsh and Terence Lam announce the launch of their new music publishing division.Downtown Records

According to Billboard, Immortal Music Publishing’s ambition is to focus on emerging talent and identify catalog acquisitions and administration and co-publishing agreements with established writers.

One of Immortal’s first deals is a worldwide administration agreement with Jake Friedman, Jason Foster, and Mike Sniper’s publishing business, No Other Music. The agreement states that Immortal will administer No Other Music’s catalog.

In addition, Immortal has signed controversial rapper/producer Le1f who will join the roster along with Downtown Record’s current artists including Ellis Ludwig-Leone (San Fermin), Amalie Bruun (Ex Cops), Thomas Arsenault (Mas Ysa), Dillon Groeneman (Slow Magic), Nicholas Principle (Port St. Willow), Lawrence Rothman and Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans (YACHT).

Deutsh and Terence have also recruited an experienced and successful group to serve as Immortal’s executive teams. Among the chosen are Eric Scott as VP, publishing and operations (formerly at BMG Chrysalis and Spirit Music Group), creative marketing executive Miles Catalano, manager, A&R and writer relations Wyatt Wolfram and licensing administration coordinator Martine Carlson.

Downtown Records is expected to sign new artists and obtain as well as market other catalogs to add to its current 5,000 song catalog after Relativity Media acquired a stake in the company earlier this year.

SongHunters Testimonials

  • "I am one of the top mixers and producers in the country and have had years of experience in the music and associated businesses.

    My company licenses songs and seeks songs to be licensed for films, TV and Commercials and thus I have worked with many people in the licensing industry and discovered there is a wide range and degree of service and quality when you seek songs.

    In my experience, I have found that The SongHunters exhibit a real knack at delivering the right songs and offering a wide range of music in all areas to choose from.

    Dave Hnatiuk, David Weiss and Doug Diamond are hands on and believe the quality service does not stop at sending a music file to choose from. They believe in follow-up and follow-through and are there for you as long as and to the extent that you need them.

    They not only provide great songs for your needs, but also provide you with some great solicitations for your music on their own projects. Do I recommend them? You bet I do! And that recommendation is earned, not just given!"

Music supervision, or matching music to all the different mediums from films to ring tones, is one of the fastest-growing careers in the music industry, but finding the winning song for a national ad campaign or compiling a platinum movie soundtrack takes more than just good taste.

This book guides you through real scenarios and legal landmines you might encounter; it explores sound design and profiles key players with insightful interviews, while providing project form templates that will save time for seasoned music supervisors.

This is the only guide to the career of music supervision and is ideal for the music student, musician, industry executive and of course, for those who want to break into the field of music supervision.
