In Nashville’s Music Publishing Community, Song Pitching Goes Remote

There is no segment of the music industry that hasn’t been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic on some way over the past several weeks. Music tours have ground to a halt as venues large and small have shuttered in response to state ordinances, touring agencies have furloughed workers, and artist managers have scrambled to revamp promotional plans for their artists’ album releases.

For Nashville’s close-knit songwriting and music publishing community, the stay-at-home ordinances have meant songwriters and music publishers alike have been sheltering in place at their homes. The sudden shift has led music publishers and songwriters to turn to digital platforms to keep their businesses moving forward.

Song pitching has shifted from physical meetings to virtual meetings and conference calls, with publishers often sending label A&R reps the music beforehand.

LBK Entertainment Signs Emma Brooke To Publishing Deal

LBK Entertainment has signed singer/songwriter Emma Brooke to an exclusive worldwide publishing deal.

At the age of 3, Brooke fell in love with Dolly Parton from a TV commercial. Over time that led to singing solos at school, to songwriting, and to vocal coach Zuke Smith. Smith not only helped Brooke with her vocal technique but built her confidence as a singer and a person. This began a journey that carried her into the craft of songwriting and understanding how an ear that has perfect pitch could be used to absorb the structure of music by influences ranging from Parton, Lee Ann Womack, Rihanna, Kacey Musgraves, Ariana Grande, and Taylor Swift. That raw talent and authenticity have earned her a collaborative place in rooms with award-winning songwriters including: Brett James, Marcus Hummon and Steve Bogard, just to name a few.

LBK Entertainment was founded by Carl Kornmeyer, a former 28-year leader at Gaylord Entertainment who led the company’s entertainment operations. Also on the team are former Arista Nashville and Universal South label head Tim DuBois and Topel, who previously worked at BE Music and Entertainment.

LBK’s roster also includes Marcus Hummon and Kev Kelly.
