West One Music Group is celebrating its 20th anniversary.
Founded in London’s Soho in 2002 by Edwin Cox, Tony Prior and film and TV composer Richard Harvey, West One has since opened offices and production studios in 15 countries and more recently, a custom music division led by the Los Angeles office.
The production music company’s creative teams work with local composers and artists. It now has a vast catalogue of over 80,000 tracks.
Edwin Cox, global CEO, said: “We hope that artists and composers want to work with us because we provide an incredible platform for their music to be heard around the world. We also respect and celebrate the amazing creativity they bring both to our catalogue and to our clients.
“We’re a relatively small group, but the production team are very hands-on with the creative process, providing orchestras, musicians, arrangers, engineers and more. Anything we need to do to support the artists and composers in creating the best music, we are more than happy to provide.”
West One Music has addressed the challenge of globalisation of client agreements by investing in building a standalone international network.
The company is home to 1,500 artists and composers and has a team of more than 70 people. It has 60 collection society memberships and global deals with numerous broadcasters around the world.
