Concord Music has agreed a global long-term publishing deal with songwriter and producer Steve Robson.
Robson, an Ivor Novello Award winner, BRIT winner and Grammy nominee, has had a hand in records that have sold 137 million units, according to Concord. His credits include a total of 12 No.1 UK/US singles, 33 No.1 UK/US albums and a further 36 Top 5 UK/US albums and singles.
Little Mix, 5 Seconds Of Summer and Olly Murs are among the artists who have worked with him. Take That’s BRIT-winning Shine was co-written by Robson.
The new deal, effective for all future copyrights, sees Robson reunited with his former publisher, Kim Frankiewicz, EVP worldwide creative at Concord Music. Frankiewicz published Robson between 2012 and 2014 at Imagem Music Group.
Frankiewicz said: “We are so delighted to welcome Steve back to the family! He remains at the top of his game and with our newly calibrated global A&R team we look forward to a very exciting future.”
Robson added: “It’s great to be working with John and Kim again after all the success we had together at Imagem - I’m looking forward to continuing that success with the new team at Concord.”
