News: emerging talent
Read on Newswire Big House Publishing has signed a three-year sub-publishing deal with German-based music publisher, ROBA Music Publishing for representation in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Big House Publishing is an independent, full-service music publishing firm that is home to both “young and experienced writers and artists alike” with a niche strength and service focus on emerging artists and artist development. ROBA is among the top German music publishers and has firmly left their mark on the industry by representing more than 300,000 publishing rights of artists such as Madonna, Michael Jackson, Tokio Hotel and Black Eyed Peas alongside more than 100,000 master rights for digital distribution and compilations. Founded in 1998, ROBA has also become one of the leading firms in production and marketing of performing acts, television, sports and film.
Big House Publishing’s CEO, Christian Cedras, comments, “We were exhilarated when Christian Baierle, ROBA’s CEO, reached out to us. It is always invigorating to work with someone who shares your ideals, vision and sonic landscape. I am very confident that we will be able to parlay this partnership to mutually strengthen our teams. The entire BHP Family is eager to work with such creative minds.”
Krista Retto, Big House Publishing’s Head of Licensing, follows, “With ROBA, we’ll be working in a full capacity, and that’s what excites me most. Not just for sync, or just song-cutting, but with each of their departments, opening these territories to our writers, producers and composers under the wing of a very strong partner. Our growth goals for next year now include quite a bit of work overseas.”

“…when considering this from a songwriting perspective, the transitions and overall flow of a song is directly influenced by the very inclination to infuse this variety. What I’m also impressed with is their ability to boisterously belt lyrics about outer space and somehow seem tender at times as well- even in the same song. They’re a strange amalgam of influences, that bunch, and really, they are an incredible live band.”
