Warner Chappell Music has announced a partnership – a “dynamic publishing partnership” no less – with Connection Music Publishing. Which, in case you wondered, is a new music publishing business launched by Glassnote Records founder Daniel Glass.

But just how dynamic will this “dynamic publishing partnership” be? Well, “the pact will bring together Warner Chappell’s global resources with Connection’s independent sensibilities through strategic administration agreements with rising talent and global stars”. Sounds pretty dynamic to me.

Say Warner Chappell CEO Guy Moot and COO Carianne Marshall in a joint statement: “Glassnote has created a world-renowned record label with Grammy Award winning artists like Mumford & Sons and Phoenix as part of its repertoire, and that strong legacy of serving as a home to some of the best in the music business is sure to continue with Glass’s latest venture, Connection Music Publishing. With Jackie Post at the helm, we couldn’t be more excited to be in business with this team”.

Ah, yes, Jackie Post is Head Of Publishing at this new company. I forgot to mention that. Sorry. Will you forgive me if I provide a quote from her? Yes? Good, here it is: “This is an incredibly exciting time in the music publishing world. We are building and investing in the next generation of songwriters, and are THRILLED to partner with Warner Chappell Music in this endeavour. It is especially meaningful to kick off the relationship with UK-based songwriter Edie Bens”.

Ah yes, Edie Bens is the first signing to Connection Music. I forgot to mention that. Sorry. Will you forgive me if I provide a quote from her? Yes? Well, I don’t have one. But here’s Daniel Glass with some words instead: “My long-time friendship and professional relationship with Carianne and Guy has now come full circle. We are proud to be working with their stellar team to help our songwriters grow”.
