Management, production and publishing house Good Groove Songs has signed an exclusive deal with independent sync agency A&G Sync.

The partnership will see A&G positioning Good Groove’s extensive catalogue, artists and management clients for commercial sync opportunities across TV, online and film.

Good Groove, which is owned and run by former Radio 1 DJ Gary Davies, is looking to increase its sync revenues from key titles with artists such as Corinne Bailey Rae, All Saints, Kylie Minogue, Celine Dion and Tiesto, through to songs with newly signed artists Indiana and Claudia Kane (both Sony) and more.

A&G Sync will also be working closely with Good Groove’s emerging talent roster including; Stealth (currently featuring on Netsky & Metrik’s Can’t Speak) (Sony), Antigoni Buxton (Dramatico) and Reilly, a new writer/producer from London.

In addition, A&GSync is briefed to work the company’s deeper catalogue, which includes classic hits from artists such as James Morrison, Eliza Doolittle, Armin Van Buuren, Joe Goddard, Newton Faulkner and Sarah Brightman.

Said Davies: “This is a really positive and proactive arrangement for our writers. A&GSync has an excellent track record for high profile placements and we believe we can mutually benefit from their global network of music supervisors and advertising creatives.

“In A&GSync we now have a dedicated company handling all our sync, clearance and licensing needs, allowing us as an independent company to focus on roster development and other areas of our business.”

Roy Lidstone-Jackson, MD of A&G Sync, said: “We’re delighted to be representing Good Groove Songs. This partnership is designed to increase opportunities and efficiencies: Good Groove has a great roster and we will provide an economical way to increase the visibility of their catalogue for sync business. This is an exciting development in our sector and we are certainly keen to explore other opportunities with similar publishers and labels.”
