NZ music publishing company Songbroker has now set up office in Los Angeles with Kiwi musician Greg Johnson representing the catalogue.

Managing director Jan Hellriegel said: “Songbroker is a wonderful resource for music users. It’s online, easy to search and is a global business which just happens to be made in NZ.

“What better way to launch in LA, the home of some of the best movie production houses in the world, than have the gifted and talented songwriter Greg Johnson champion our catalogue. We are very excited to be working with Greg as both a writer and now Songbroker representative stateside.”

Greg Johnson said: “I’ve been signed to many publishers large and small throughout my 35-year songwriting career. Songbroker is by far and away the best and most forward thinking of them.

“The modern focus Songbroker brings is entirely in line with the digital world we live in now, with the priority being the writers and their music. I can honestly say my catalogue has never had more attention and care.

“Songbroker can help with searches to find a song to perfectly fit a brief, and talk to its composers about writing something new.”

“I’m really excited to be involved in introducing this large, varied, quality catalogue of NZ music in the US where I’ve lived and worked for the last 16 years and I believe we have a truly unique resource to introduce to music supervisors, producers, film makers and agencies here in Los Angeles and elsewhere.”

Songbroker specialises in New Zealand music and looks after a multitude of artists of all styles, genres and generational fashion. All songs on the Songbroker catalogue are made in NZ, of an excellent quality, highly original and best of all, easy to clear.

“It’s a one-stop-shop for licensing music and a wonderful resource for NZ content makers,” Johnson says.

“Songbroker can also help with searches to find a song to perfectly fit a brief. As well as this Songbroker can talk to any of its composers about writing something new.

“Film, production companies and advertising agencies – and all content makers who use music – are invited to view the catalogue online.”
