Round Hill Music has entered into a publishing joint venture with indie label Mexican Summer.
The worldwide exclusive deal will see creative rights management company Round Hill Music work with the label - that is known for launching the career of band Best Coast - to provide publishing services to signed songwriters and artists on the its roster.
The two parties will also team up to merge resources in order to provide primary creative development for a new indie artist division.
Josh Gruss, CEO of Round Hill said: "This partnership with Mexican Summer, one of the most respected independent record labels in the business, is powerfully complimentary.
"We benefit from their ability to discover and sign amazing talent early on, and it gives Mexican Summer a full-service publishing platform that is similar in terms of culture and boutique feel. We are confident this partnership will open up many new opportunities to create value for the songwriters on Mexican Summer and Round Hill's publishing roster."
Andrés Santo Domingo, president of Mexican Summer said: "We really wanted to find a home for our roster and work with a publishing company that would spend the time and attention on new artists - that's really what we do, scour for new talent and concentrate on the creative development of promising independent artists.
"Round Hill Music just seemed to operate on the perfect size and scale of what we have in mind for the way that we handle our artists. We're extremely excited to be working with them and can really lay down the groundwork to building a really solid division of new up and coming indie artists for them."
