After a busy month of A3C and CMJ, November creeped right up on us! But as always, we’ve got awesome stuff to report from our Music Publishing Administration office in Burbank, CA! Take a look at who has joined our songwriter community and which compositions have recently been licensed in film, commercials and TV shows.
With a stylistic tip of the cap to Americana trail blazers Jack White, The Black Crowes and ZZ Top, TuneCore Music Publishing writer David Hudson leads his group HUDSON on a neo-classic rock bender on their latest effort, Into the Unknown. Creating music they hope reaches the depths of your soul, their altruistic mantra is paying dividends with their single “Weightless” gaining traction at radio and a recent feature on The Collective on NuvoTv Powered by Vevo.
TuneCore Music Publishing is proud to administer select compositions from the highly regardedsongwriter, Gregory Page. Page is an English born Irish/Armenian musician who creates oddly compelling songs that are full of cinematic melodies. Perhaps best written by the composer himself, “The tightrope my music teeters upon is the struggle between tradition & progress, history & fantasy. I am the songbird & the worm.” Fellow troubadour and Page’s most recent producer Jason Mraz calmly states, “He’s the real deal, a rare gift.”
Twin brothers Niels and Torsten Kinsella, along with producer Thomas Kinsella and drummer Lloyd Hanney, make up the creative brain trust behind one of the world’s most intense, musically and visually inventive post-rock bands, God is an Astronaut. TuneCore Music Publishing proudly administers the full catalog from the Glen of the Downs, Ireland instrumental rockers, including their 2005 breakthrough All is Violent, All is Bright and latest release, Origins.

In addition to our Sync & Master Licensing Database, our creative staff continuously works to place TuneCore administered copyrights across all multi-media.

Pictures’ Entourage, an upcoming unscripted series on ABC Family, Vans branded content projects and trailers for the Netflix documentary My Own Man.
