Concord Music has signed a new global long-term publishing deal with Ivor Novello award-winning British songwriter and producer, Steve Robson.
Robson has written songs for the likes of Little Mix, Take That, 5 Seconds Of Summer, Olly Murs and others.
He has sold in excess of 137 million records and has a total of 12 No.1 UK/US singles, 33 No.1 UK/US albums and a further 36 Top 5 UK/US albums and singles.
The new deal, effective from January 1, 2019 for all future copyrights, sees Robson reunited with his former publisher, Kim Frankiewicz.
Frankiewicz, who now serves as EVP Worldwide Creative at Concord Music, published Robson between 2012 and 2014 when signed to the then Imagem Music Group.
Grammy nominated, Robson’s accolades also include a Brit Award and winning the BMI song of the year for Rascal Flatts What Hurts The Most.
“He remains at the top of his game and with our newly calibrated global A&R team we look forward to a very exciting future.”

“I’m looking forward to continuing that success with the new team at Concord”.
