Pulse Music Group has announced it has formed a music publishing creative joint venture with Dan Wilson—dubbed Supermoon Songs.
Through the joint venture, Wilson will sign and develop his own roster of artists, writers, and producers. Dan Wilson’s manager Jim Grant and business partner Rick Markowitz are co-founders in the Supermoon Songs joint venture. Dan Wilson is a talented singer, songwriter, musician, and producer—often called a songwriter’s songwriter.
His songwriting credits include “Closing Time,” “Not Ready to Make Nice” (co-written with the Chicks), and “Someone Like You” (co-written with Adele). “Someone Like You” topped the charts in nineteen countries, marking Adele’s first #1 single in the UK. Wilson co-wrote three tracks on Adele’s second studio album, 21.
Dan Wilson is a go-to writer/producer in the industry and has written and produced a who’s who of top recording artists spanning multiple genres. They include Leon Bridges, Mitski, Panic! at the Disco, Weezer, Celine Dion, Jon Batiste, Laufey, Claud, John Legend, Keith Urban, Nas, and many more.
“Dan is a once-in-a-generation songwriter and producer,” adds Scott Cutler, Co-CEO Pulse Music Group. “He’s been consistently impressive for over 25 years now and his songs have provided a soundtrack for global audiences. Establishing Supermoon Songs with Dan, Jim, and Rick is a natural fit for us because Dan has a proven reputation for adding so much value to creatives in the industry, from knowing how to empower them to write great songs to bringing out the best of their talent in the recording process.”
“This type of collaboration and mentorship is exactly in line with what we strive to deliver to the creative community we have built at Pulse Music Group. We’ve been following Dan’s career since the beginning and look forward to working with Dan, Jim, and Rick through the Supermoon Songs platform to launch the next wave of talent.”
“For a long time, I’ve been acting as a mentor to young writers and artists, being as helpful as I can purely as an advisor,” Dan Wilson says. “But I’ve wanted to find a way to take that mentorship and build it into something that can provide even more partnership and leverage along the way. I’ve wanted to be able to offer more than good advice—to help young, brilliant artists expand their opportunities, their interconnection, their network of collaborators.”
“That’s the vision for Supermoon Songs, my joint venture with Pulse Music Group. We’ve made our first signing to the company, a brilliant songwriter and singer named Paul Dally.”
Paul Dally is a songwriter/recording artist hailing from the island of Vashon, Washington. He started writing songs and experimenting with music when he was 12. His father gave him a Tascam 4-track and Dally was hooked. As a high schooler, Dally traveled over two hours a day to get to the Tacoma School of the Arts. Paul recently released his single “Moonlit Breakers ft. Dijon.”
