Independent UK-based neighbouring rights company Absolute Rights Management (ARM) has made a number new signings including Jack Savoretti.
Absolute Rights Management is a joint venture between Absolute Label Services and Bucks Music Group.
The signing of Jack Savoretti comes after the singer-songwriter earned his first No.1 on the UK’s Official Albums Chart with his fourth studio album, Singing To Strangers, in March.
The 2019 release is Savoretti’s third Top 10 album, with 2015’s Written In Scars peaking at No.7 and Sleep No More reaching No.6.
Savoretti’s addition to the ARM roster follows a number of other signings for the company in recent months, including UK grime and rap producers HeavyTrackerz (Stormzy, Dizzee Rascal, Big Narstie); songwriter and producer Brian Rawling (Cher, Tina Turner, Enrique Iglesias, One Direction); The Puppini Sisters’ Marcella Puppini; Fairground Attraction’s Mark Nevin; BAFTA-nominated TV and film composer Sheridan Tongue; musician, composer and performer Warren Bennett; and DJ and producer Calibre.
The formation of Absolute Rights Management was announced in 2017 with the likes of The Jam’s Bruce Foxton, The Shadows’ Brian Bennett, composer, guitarist and pianist David Arnold and Christian rock artist and songwriter Martin Smith joining the roster.
“To have such a long list of great talent trust us with this part of their business so early after the formation of Absolute Rights Management is really pleasing and tells us we’re doing something right.”

“We make sure all of our clients are connected with the royalties that are rightfully theirs.
“It takes a great deal of time and expertise, but neighbouring rights revenue is becoming an increasingly important part of artists’ income, so our work is incredibly worthwhile.”Music Business Worldwide
