Big Machine Music and 19 Publishing are joining forces in a publishing venture to administer all rights for Season 14 winner, Nick Fradiani and Season 15 winner, Trent Harmon. Check out all of the details below.
Big Machine Music and 19 Publishing have entered into a joint music publishing venture. The agreement will allow Big Machine Music to co-publish and administer all rights for Big Machine Records/19 Recordings artists Nick Fradiani and Trent Harmon, and administer the associated rights for 19’s share.
“It’s so exciting to be a partner with 19 on these incredibly talented artists/songwriters,” said Mike Molinar, Big Machine Music VP/General Manager. “American Idol just scratched the surface of showing off both artists’ unlimited potential and we can’t wait for everyone to hear what is coming next!”
Fradiani’s debut album Hurricane released Friday (Aug. 5). Fradiani co-wrote 11 of the 12 tracks, including the pop & Hot AC hit “Get You Home,” his debut single “Beautiful Life,” and fan-favorite “All on You.”
Harmon recently premiered his debut single, “There’s A Girl” on FOX & Friends’ Summer Concert series. Shortly after his American Idol win, he co-wrote the song with Jimmy Robbins and Big Machine Music’s Laura Veltz.
This is the first time 19E and the label have joined forces on publishing. It’s going to be interesting to see what happens to the Big Machine Artists now that American Idol is no longer on the air.
