Having launched a joint venture label with Warner Music earlier this year, Black Diamond Music has now added a music publishing wing to the business. And earlier this month it allied with Kobalt, which will administrate the new venture’s songs catalogue. Kobalt is already working with Black Diamond managed artist Mullally.

The company’s co-founder, David Olusegun, says: “Our vision at Black Diamond Music has always been to discover, sign and develop the most forward-thinking music creators in our generation and give them the platform and infrastructure to succeed. We expressed this to Alison Donald and she understood the vision immediately and now we are excited about signing unique, culture-defining writers to Black Diamond Publishing with Kobalt”.

The there mentioned Alison is Kobalt’s Alison Donald, who adds: “We’re delighted to be working with Black Diamond and the next stage of their development as a company. We’re looking forward to administering their roster of writers including those currently working closely with our recent signing Mullally”.
