MUSIC PUBLISHING & SUPERVISION

YOUR PARTNER
IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY.

WHICH ONE FEELS LIKE YOU?

I write songs and need a publisher

You want to take your music to the next level, and you need someone who knows the industry. You're looking for a partner who'll place your music strategically, and help you navigate the industry.

I NEED MUSIC FOR MY PRODUCTION

You’re in the audio-visual industry and you need someone to source or commission music for your production, and  negotiate and manage the music rights with repertoire owners.

 

Hey, I'm John

I launched Active Music Publishing in 2010 because I wanted to return to the essence of music publishing: The songs, the composers, and the creators of the copyrights. Without a hit song, there is no artist, singer, or successful band.

 

Since anyone can make and upload music now, the question is: How do I stand out as a composer? Which song is a single? How do I find the right song for my film, advert, or other TV production?

 

That’s where my ±35 years of experience comes in: In this day and age, a good song isn’t enough; one needs a great song, and a community network to match.

 

I’ve worked with internationally acclaimed artists — the likes of Chaka Kahn, Wet Wet Wet, Locnville, and Flash Republic — as well as film and TV production companies from Warner Brothers to Universal Studios. I’m also a drummer and frontman myself, and have played in various amateur bands over the years.


I want to help you write a better song, place a better soundtrack in your production, and connect you to a network I’ve crafted over more than three decades. Not only will your copyright be protected professionally, but you’ll have Active Music Publishing as your partner and guide to navigating the music industry.
