Warner Chappell Music has announced it is joining forces with Limited Edition Music to develop emerging songwriters across multiple genres.
Greg Sowders, WCM’s SVP of A&R and Catalog, will continue in his current role while also leading Limited Edition Music alongside former WCM A&R executive Marc Wilson. Alternative pop/punk singer and songwriter Emmyn Calleiro from the band Games We Play, and rising country artist Bailey Callahan are the first signings through this new Warner Chappell Music and Limited Edition Music publishing partnership.
“Greg has been a key fixture at Warner Chappell for more than three decades and has dedicated his career to building out a star-studded alternative and rock roster,” adds Guy Moot, WCM Co-Chair and CEO. “This is the perfect opportunity for him to continue to lead those efforts while also working with more emerging writers alongside Marc.”
“Working with Guy, Carianne, and Ryan is a total joy. I’ve been a part of the Warner Chappell family for over 30 years, and I’m ready to continue this amazing journey by re-uniting with my long-time friend and creative partner Marc Wilson,” adds Sowders. “Limited Edition Music will be a home for emerging artists and writers, within the incredible WCM ecosystem. I can’t imagine a better place to launch Limited Edition Music while staying fully dedicated to Warner Chappell. Our band just got even better!”
Marc Wilson adds, “Our mission at Limited Edition Music is to give our songwriters and artists a hands-on platform to grow and achieve success. As a former, long-time veteran of WCM, I couldn’t be more excited to come home and continue to work with some of the best creatives int he world, alongside my friend and mentor, Greg Sowders. Greg is an absolute legend in the music business and his vest wealth of knowledge is invaluable. I can’t thank Guy, Carianne, and Ryan enough for the opportunity.”
