Secretly Publishing and Fort William Artist Management have announced worldwide publishing administration deals that bring catalogs and future works of artists including The War on Drugs (pictured above), Beirut, Dehd and Grizzly Bear to the Secretly Publishing roster.

The songwriters represented under the new agreements include Adam Granduciel, Anthony Lamarca, Jason Balla, Emily Kempf, Christopher Bear, Chris Taylor, Daniel Rossen, David Hartley, Edward Droste, Fred Nicolaus, Jon Natchez, Robbie Bennett and Zach Condon.

Secretly Publishing represents over 20,000 musical works, including artists such as Kishi Bashi, Ric Wilson, Frankie Cosmos, Bayonne, Durand Jones and the Indications, Jason Molina, Lonnie Holley, Whitney, Japanese Breakfast and Beach Fossils, as well as a catalog of long undiscovered soul and funk hits of the 1960s and 1970s.

“We’re excited to welcome this incredible group of songwriters to the Secretly Publishing family,” says Kathleen Cook, Secretly’s Managing Director of Publishing & Sync. “Collectively, they have soundtracked some of my favorite movies, shows, and real-life memories, and it’s an honor to be entrusted with the stewardship of this catalog. Additionally, I would be hard-pressed to find a manager who is a stronger advocate for her artists than Ami Spishock. I look forward to working closely with Ami and the whole Fort William team.”

Fort William founder Ami Spishock adds, “Fort William has always supported independent publishers and has benefited because of it. We’re thrilled to add to the growing family over at Secretly Publishing. Kathy and her team are committed to working hard, getting placements and making sure collections are clear, correct and timely. I’m excited for this relationship as we go into this new era of the music business.”
