Bucks Music Group has announced that it has launched a new company, Gloworks. The company is dedicated to worship music publishing, and will work closely with Martin Smith - frontman of Christian rock band Delirious.
Gloworks will offer songwriters in the worship genre the same deals and services that the wider Bucks roster enjoys, as well as a platform to transition into mainstream genres.
Speaking about the new platform, Smith said: “I’m really happy to be partnering with Bucks for the launch of Gloworks. There are soSpeaking me very talented songwriters in the Christian music scene and our hope is that together we can support those writers and their songs. With the focus and community of Gloworks plugged into Bucks, we’ll be able to develop this music and perhaps see it reach a new audience.”
Bucks Music Group MD Simon Platz said: “Worship music is an incredibly vibrant market that doesn’t often get the recognition it deserves. Regardless of the subject matter, there’s a vast number of artists working in the genre who are simply excellent songwriters. We want to offer them the fair, flexible, commercial publishing deals that artists these days have come to expect.
“With Martin’s expertise and our resources, we can boost their careers within the worship genre, but we also want to help them explore opportunities across the wider music business. Bucks has decades of experience across all genres and, whether it’s through our sync services or creative A&R, song placement and co-writing opportunities, we feel we can help many of them crossover and flourish in the mainstream market as well – just as Martin has done.”
