Given Music Publishing and Gary Baker’s Baker-san Music have entered into a joint venture deal, according to an announcement made today by Given’s VP/GM Michael Hollandsworth. The agreement reunites Baker and Hollandsworth, who worked together at both Fame Music and Zomba Music. The joint venture includes Baker-san writer/artists Danny Wilson and Graeme Hogg (Justin Bieber’s “Believe” and The Wanted’s “We Own the Night”) as well as writer/producer Matt Johnson.

Under Hollandsworth’s guidance, Baker and Frank Myers co-wrote one of music’s most enduring songs, “I Swear,” which was a multi-week No. 1 record on both the country charts (John Michael Montgomery) and the Hot 100 charts (All-4-One). The songwriters were also three-time ACM and CMA nominees for Vocal Duo of the Year as the recording act Baker & Myers. As a writer, Baker went on to have great success with the international pop act the Backstreet Boys, as eight of his songs appeared on a number of the group’s multi-million selling records. He has just finished producing a Special Edition Greatest Hits & Fan Favorites on the Backstreet Boys, set for release this fall. He will also be involved with writing for the band’s upcoming studio album, scheduled for release in 2019.
