Bucks Music Group has signed a deal to administrate artist management firm This Is Music’s new publishing set up, These Are Songs.

“Historically, we have not signed a lot of artists for management because we believe in taking time to develop projects from the ground up”, says TIM MD Oli Isaacs of his new venture. “But we wanted to find a flexible way to work dynamically with more of the exciting new writers and producers we come across. We want to be involved in making music at the highest level, and publishing is another great way to do that”.

On the Bucks tie up specifically, he continued: “When we were introduced to the team at Bucks, we immediately felt that they were the right people to partner with in order to build something truly excellent. We are very much looking forward to working with them”.

Bucks Music Group MD Simon Platz adds: “Oli, Lisa [Marzxen] and Simon [Gold] have a great reputation and track record when it comes to finding and developing exciting new talent as managers. We’re sure they’ll be equally successful in publishing. They share the same approach and philosophy to service and creative A&R as we do here at Bucks, so we’re happy to bolster their efforts with this agreement”.
