Blue Raincoat Songs join forces with Kobalt Music Publishing

Blue Raincoat Songs, the publishing company led by Jeremy Lascelles and Robin Millar, announced today a new partnership with Kobalt Music Publishing. The long-term worldwide administration deal will mean that Kobalt will provide a variety of publishing services to Blue Raincoat including copyright administration and royalty tracking.

Jeremy Lascelles said “Blue Raincoat Songs will be a very creatively driven operation, but we know how important it is to have really efficient registration and collection systems in place. Kobalt’s reputation in this area is second to none and they will provide a global resource and infrastructure that should be a perfect complement to our creative endeavours. Plus it will be nice having them on our team rather than as a competitor!”

Richard Sanders, President Kobalt Music Group said “All of us at Kobalt look forward to adding value to the roster of Blue Raincoat Songs writers by enhancing Jeremy and Robin’s creative expertise with our global rights management platform.”

Jeremy and Robin, with the backing of Chrysalis’s Chris Wright and former Virgin Entertainment Chairman Robert Devereux, aim to bring back the true spirit of independent music to the industry. Between them the partners have an unrivalled pedigree in the music business.

Jeremy Lascelles and Robin Millar announce the launch of Blue Raincoat Songs

Blue Raincoat Music, one of the UK’s fastest growing artist management companies, announced today their expansion into music publishing with the formation of Blue Raincoat Songs and their first signing, the song writing legend Mike Chapman.

Founded by some of the most heavyweight figures in the business Jeremy and Robin, with the backing of Chrysalis’s Chris Wright and former Virgin Entertainment Chairman Robert Devereux, aim to bring back the true spirit of independent music to the industry.

Blue Raincoat Songs’ primary focus is to maximise their artists’ opportunities through their own brand of specialist expertise. Between them the founders have an unrivalled pedigree in the music business, which they will be utilising working with their first publishing signing, legendary songwriter/producer Mike Chapman.

Mike was part of the Chinn/Chapman song writing team behind the biggest hits for artists such as Suzi Quatro, Smokie, Mud and the Sweet in the ’70’s – classics such as “Can the Can”, “Devilgate Drive”, “Ballroom Blitz”, “Tiger Feet” and many more. On his own, Mike went on to produce four huge albums for Blondie including the classic ‘Parallel Lines’, whilst as a writer the hits kept coming with songs like ‘Mickey’ for Toni Basil.

The deal with Blue Raincoat Songs covers the territories of the UK, France, Australia, Japan, S.Africa, and includes songs from Mike’s catalogue such as ‘Love Is A Battlefield’ recorded by Pat Benatar and the huge worldwide hit ’The Best’, most famously recorded by Tina Turner.
