Latest News From TuneCore Publishing

May 21, 2015

Happy Thursday! It’s been a great month already and we’re psyched to see what summer will bring for our TuneCore Publishing Administration Artists. Per usual we’re checking in from our Burbank, CA office to keep you up to speed with our songwriters, pitching, and sync placements. Finding music publishing administration to be somewhat of a daunting subject? We get it! That’s why we’re here to help you out – learn more about TuneCore Publishing here.


Kelley JamesSouthern California native, Kelley James, has built an impressive career over the better part of the last decade by creating deep brand partner relationships and near non-stop touring. James shares the stage with artists like Sara Bareilles and O.A.R., plus performs at high-profile corporate events for brands like Oakley, Wheels Up, Casamigos Tequila, Red Bull and Golf Digest.

Combining acoustic guitar, freestyle vocal riffs, and the beachside vibes of his home state, James creates a unique pop style all his own. Having released three albums in the past five years, his latest, The Pattern Transcending, reached the top 20 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter charts.

Tommy RoeTuneCore Music Publishing is thrilled to be working with legendary 60’s bubblegum rocker, Tommy Roe. Roe made waves with his chart-topping hits, “Sheila” and “Everybody”, both of which he played when he opened for The Beatles at their first U.S concert in Washington D.C in 1964.

Georgia Music Hall of Fame inductee, Tommy Roe, has continued to release music and his newest album, Devil’s Soul Pile, shows his gravitation from his famous bubblegum rock style to a more lyrically and musically mature sound. Devil’s Soul Pile, Roe’s first album administered by TuneCore Music Publishing, includes not only new songs, but older catalog songs like “Memphis Me”, which Roe resurfaced and recorded for the album.


In addition to our Sync & Master Licensing Database, our creative team continuously works to place TuneCore administered copyrights across all visual media. Recent pitches include music for several TV shows including Longmire and Rizzoli & IslesRunner starring Nicolas Cage, and multiple sports programs like NASCAR on Fox and the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
