Kobalt signs deal with estate of rock and blues legend Gregg Allman | Music Business Worldwide


Kobalt has inked a deal with the estate of rock and blues pioneer, Gregg Allman.

The worldwide agreement includes publishing administration and global sync services for all of Gregg Allman’s works, which include songs with The Allman Brothers Band and his solo career.

This is the first change in administration for the catalog in more than 15 years and the first time it will be represented throughout the world.

Gregg Allman was a founding member of the Allman Brothers Band and also enjoyed a successful solo career.

Allman accrued a long list of honors over his five decade career, including the ABB’s 1995 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards.

He detailed his career in the 2012 memoir, My Cross To Bear.

“Gregg and The Allman Brothers Band legacy is rich with great music that should be recognized for music generations to come.”

“His iconic catalog transcends time and many music categories. Our global creative and sync team will breathe new life into these songs from decades ago, to be heard by new and old fans alike around the world.”

“We will endeavor to find and foster the music supervisor fans, and to make new converts, as we market not only his songs but the stories, the passion, and the honesty that defined his remarkable life in music.”

Kobalt Music Senior Vice President, Commercial Synch, Keith D’Arcy, added: “Gregg Allman’s fans have a deep and personal connection to the man that goes beyond the music and right to the heart of who Allman was as a person.

“He was, as the song says, ‘no angel’, but through all his ups and downs he stayed true to himself, his family, his band, and to those dedicated fans. The music supervision community is no different.

“We will endeavor to find and foster the music supervisor fans, and to make new converts, as we market not only his songs but the stories, the passion, and the honesty that defined his remarkable life in music.”Music Business Worldwide
