Some of the biggest tracks on which Ultra has a share include: OMI “Cheerleader”, Katy Perry “Firework”, Big Shaq “Man’s Not Hot”, James Arthur “Say You Won’t Let Go”, Joel Corry ft. Mabel “I Wish” and Diplo “Looking For Me.”
“I’m delighted to be joining forces with Guy Moot, Shani Gonzales, and the team at Warner Chappell Music in the UK and Europe,” says Patrick Moxey, Founder and CEO of Ultra Music Publishing. “This new alliance will open up a wealth of new opportunities for Ultra’s writers to collaborate across Warner Chappell Music’s amazing roster of talent and will allow us to access its state-of-the-art collection systems and resources on behalf of all those we represent.”
Guy Moot, Co-Chairman and CEO of Warner Chappell Music says, “Patrick and I have known each other for more than 30 years both as friends and business partners. There are few better at understanding where music is heading and what opportunities that’s opening up.”
“So I’m delighted that we’re getting to work together again as a result of this deal and I know that our collaboration will benefit writers on both our rosters.”
Shani Gonzales, Head of International A&R and Managing Director of Warner Chappell Music UK adds, “I’ve been a fan of Ultra for years. Patrick has been behind wave after wave of new talent. I’m so excited that we’re going to be working together to unlock more commercial and creative benefits for our writers.”
