Kobalt has signed an administration deal to represent Gregg Allman’s entire songwriting catalogue worldwide – both solo and with The Allman Brothers.

“Gregg and The Allman Brothers Band’s legacy is rich with great music that should be recognised for music generations to come”, reckons Kobalt’s EVP Business Development Merril Wasserman-Serling. “His iconic catalogue transcends time and many music categories. Our global creative and sync team will breathe new life into these songs from decades ago, to be heard by new and old fans alike around the world”.

Kobalt’s SVP Commercial Sync Kaeith D’Arcy adds: “Gregg Allman’s fans have a deep and personal connection to the man that goes beyond the music and right to the heart of who Allman was as a person. He was, as the song says, ‘no angel’, but through all his ups and downs he stayed true to himself, his family, his band and to those dedicated fans”.

“The music supervision community is no different”, D’Arcy then says, for some reason. “We will endeavour to find and foster the music supervisor fans and to make new converts, as we market not only his songs but the stories, the passion and the honesty that defined his remarkable life in music”.

Allman died in 2017. Which you probably knew. But just in case you wondered why he hadn’t bothered to comment on the new deal.
