Warner Chappell and Artist Publishing Group partner on Ava Max deal

Warner Chappell Music and Artist Publishing Group have entered into a joint co-publishing agreement with Ava Max.

Last year’s breakout single Sweet But Psycho reached No. 1 in more than 25 countries, including Germany, Finland, Ireland and the UK. 

“I’m someone who speaks my mind, so it was important to me that my publisher value originality and creative expression,” said Max. “I trust the APG crew immensely, and am excited to collaborate with the Warner Chappell team to begin this next chapter.”

“Ava’s show-stopping vocals and sensational songwriting prove she is a true pop icon in the making, and we look forward to contributing to her growing success,” said WCM co-chair and CEO, Guy Moot

WCM’s president of A&R, US, Ryan Press and VP of A&R, Katy Wolaver, added, "Ava is bold, fearless and a breath of fresh air. The world’s only just begun to see the heights that she can hit, and we’re excited to be by her side in the journey ahead.”

“I’ve had the privilege of working closely with Ava, and it’s amazing to see her personality and creativity brought to life in her music,” said Angie Pagano, GM, Artist Publishing Group. “Her incredible voice and passion for pop music set her apart, and I’m happy to support her relentless determination as she continues to skyrocket.”
