Eagle Rock Entertainment have launched a publishing division to be called Eagle-i Music, which will be headed up by Roberto Neri, who joins Eagle Rock from indie publisher Bug Music.

Confirming the new strand to his business, Eagle Rock founder and chairman Terry Shand told reporters: “There is an opportunity in the market for another indie publisher – and I believe that Eagle-i Music will be able to stand out from the crowd due to our strong links and history in the worldwide entertainment business”.

He continued: “Publishing complements everything we do at Eagle Rock – as we already have a phenomenal physical, digital and television distribution network it is an area the organisation should have entered into sooner. It’s been on the cards for a while, but we had never found the right team to work with before. Although we will be starting from scratch with Eagle-i Music, Roberto’s talent and expertise will give us a flying start”,

Neri himself added: “Eagle-i will offer world class, efficient administration of music rights and we will be driven by the music. With creative and synchronisation specialists, we will be setting trends in all markets”.
