The publishing side of the Nashville-based Dualtone Music Group – which in turn is part of Entertainment One – has announced a deal with Isalee Music Publishing which will see it administer the songs of Chuck Berry, some works US-only, and some on a global basis.

The deal covers many of Berry’s classic hits, plus all the new songs on ‘Chuck’, the posthumous album that was put out by Dualtone’s label earlier this year.

Confirming his company was extending its relationship with the Chuck Berry Estate, Dualtone boss Scott Robinson said: “It’s a real honour to be working with the Berry family, representing Chuck’s songs to the world. These songs are truly an amazing body of work!”

Meanwhile Gary Pierson – who represents both the Berry Estate and the late musician’s own Isalee Music company – added: “This agreement makes it easier than ever to license iconic Chuck Berry songs all over the world. Dualtone did a great job helping to bring Chuck’s last record to the world, and now we are excited to partner with them on his catalogue as well”.
