CCS Rights Management announces partnership to push new publishing venture into the US market

By | Published on Thursday 12 August 2021

Toronto-based CCS Rights Management has announced a tie-up with LA-based radio host and music supervisor Chris Douridas to push its newly launched Daytripper Music Publishing venture into the US market.

CCS launched Daytripper last month as “a new division and standalone brand dedicated to the creative development of established and up-and-coming artists and songwriters, while enhancing, capitalising and promoting their works”.

This new joint venture between Daytripper and Douridas, who founded the new talent showcase series School Night in addition to his radio and supervision work, will – the company says – help it achieve its aim of “discovering and nurturing artists and songwriters at all levels and stages in [their] careers”.

Confirming the tie-up, CCS Founder and President Jodie Ferneyhough says: “As we expand into the US, I couldn’t be more pleased to be partnering with Chris, who embodies everything we envisioned as the philosophy behind CCS’s new Daytripper Music Publishing division. The company is centred around discovering and fostering great artists and songwriters, and Chris is unequivocally one of the best in the world at doing it”

Douridas himself adds: “Identifying great artistry and helping it find its way out into the world is at the heart of everything I do. An alliance with Jodie is an obvious fit. He is extremely passionate about nurturing and developing great songwriters. More than that, he has a clear vision of what he wants Daytripper to become, and I am very excited about helping him and [A&R Director] Jordan [Howard] build it”.
