'His iconic catalogue transcends time': Kobalt signs deal with Gregg Allman estate

Kobalt has signed a deal with the estate of Gregg Allman.

The worldwide agreement includes publishing administration and global sync services for all of Allman's works, which include songs with The Allman Brothers Band and his solo career.

It is the first change in administration for the catalogue in more than 15 years and the first time it will be represented throughout the world.

Merril Wasserman-Serling, Kobalt Music EVP, business development, said: “Gregg and The Allman Brothers Band legacy is rich with great music that should be recognised for music generations to come. His iconic catalogue transcends time and many music categories. Our global creative and sync team will breathe new life into these songs from decades ago, to be heard by new and old fans alike around the world.”

Keith D’Arcy, Kobalt Music SVP, commercial sync, added: “Gregg Allman's fans have a deep and personal connection to the man that goes beyond the music and right to the heart of who Allman was as a person. He was, as the song says, ‘no angel’, but through all his ups and downs he stayed true to himself, his family, his band, and to those dedicated fans.

“The music supervision community is no different. We will endeavour to find and foster the music supervisor fans, and to make new converts, as we market not only his songs but the stories, the passion, and the honesty that defined his remarkable life in music.”
