Downtown Music Publishing has announced a new business partnership with production trio The Invisible Men. Under the deal, Downtown will provide creative and advisory services, as well as handling royalty collection for producers and songwriters that will be signed to the new joint venture.

“We at Downtown are so delighted to have signed this JV partnership with The Invisible Men”, says Downtown Music UK MD Roberto Neri. “Their reputation for spotting and nurturing talent has taken them and the artists they have written for to global recognition”.

The first signing under the new partnership is songwriting and production duo Saltwives, who have written for artists including Zayn Malik and Iggy Azalea, and of whom Neri says: “David [Phelan] and Alex [Oriet] are extremely talented, hard working and deserve every moment of their success”.

Both The Invisible Men and Saltwives are based at the London offices of First Access Entertainment, which manages Zayn Malik, Iggy Azalea, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora and others.
