LA-based music publisher Big Deal Music, which was set up in 2012 by some former Chrysalis Music execs, has announced a new sub-publishing arrangement with fellow indie publisher Peermusic that covers much of the world (though not America, France, Australia and Africa, so cross them off your map).

Peermusic’s big deal with Big Deal will see it working with the songwriting catalogues of Afghan Whigs, Beach House, Local Natives, My Morning Jacket, Nick Lowe, Pavement, Ray LaMontagne, Sharon Van Etten, Sleater-Kinney and St Vincent, among others.

Says Big Deal’s big boss Kenny MacPherson: “I have admired what Peermusic has stood for and built over the years. As a family business, they have embodied the independent spirit of music publishing, something we’re striving to emulate. It takes great people to build great companies and we’re THRILLED to call them partners”.

Over at Peermusic, its President Kathy Spanberger added: “In many ways, Kenny and his team are kindred spirits to us – they are committed, truly independent publishers who exist to serve their writers. This deal allows us to help maximise opportunities for an incredible roster of songwriters with business partners that we deeply respect”.
