Rezonant Music Publishing had 21 of the Top 100 singles of the year according to the Mediabase year-end review. These songs included such hits as Ross Copperman’s “Get Along” (Kenny Chesney); Scooter Carusoe’s “For the First Time” (Darius Rucker); Trevor Rosen’s “Hotel Key” (Old Dominion); Hillary Lindsey’s “Take Back Home, Girl” (Chris Lane) and Mitch Rossell’s “All Day Long” (Garth Brooks).
“The Rezonant music family is associated with a remarkable group of writers who have created some of 2018’s most diverse and memorable songs,” said Rezonant’s CEO Tim Wipperman. “It is a testament to their creativity that artists who are at the top of their respective games turn to them when looking for a great song to cut and take to their fans. While some may think it will be a challenge to top such a great year, I’ve heard some of the new songs that these incredibly talented writers are working on, and have no doubt they will see even greater success this time next year.”
About Rezonant Music Publishing
Rezonant Music Publishing was established in 2016 by founding partners and music publishing veterans Tim Wipperman (Nashville) and Garry Velletri (New York), along with financial consultant Alan Walter (Los Angeles). Rezonant is fully funded by an LA and New York-based private equity fund that manages more than one billion in assets. According to Wipperman, this funding will allow the new publishing company to move aggressively in signing writers and acquiring existing companies and catalogs.
The three executives each bring a rich history of expertise and results to the company. Wipperman and Velletri have more than 30 years in their respective resumes of working for and running top publishing companies across all genres of music. Walter, former CFO of Famous Music and Bug Music, will handle the financial responsibilities from LA and also brings with him an impressive and experienced background in finance, accounting, music administration and operation. Rebekah Gordon is Rezonant’s VP Creative/Nashville.
Rezonant’s writer roster includes Ross Copperman and Kevin Kadish (in conjunction with Sony), Hillary Lindsey and Scooter Carusoe (in conjunction with BMG), Issac Fox, Matt King, Ryan Plappert and Jake Scherer, as well as Trevor Rosen, Mitch Rossell, Bob and Clint Moffatt, Alexis Ebert and Sony recording artist Colin Elmore (in conjunction with Wrensong) and Matt Jenkins’ catalog (in conjunction with Combustion Music). Rezonant entered a joint venture partnership in late 2017 with Wrensong Publishing and in early 2018, the company purchased the Extreme Writers Group catalog. www.rezonantmusic.com.
