BMG PREPARES TO BUILD NEW OFFICE/CREATIVE SPACE IN NASHVILLE

The announcement follows BMG’s acquisition of one of Nashville’s leading independents, BBR Music Group, and its labels Broken Bow Records, Stoney Creek Records, Red Bow Records and Wheelhouse Records.

The value of having the entire BMG Nashville staff in one locale is immeasurable and enables us to utilize the expertise across all our departments, with open lines of communication, creating a distinct edge for our artists and songwriters.”

BMG’s 80-person team in Nashville includes A&R, Accounting, Administration, Income Tracking, Marketing, Publicity, Radio Promotions, Royalties, and Sync Licensing. The proposed BMG office space will include songwriter/recording rooms and performance spaces, a collaborative floor plan, fully capable A/V meeting spaces and conference rooms, as well as a large communal outside area and terrace for live events.

Martin Bandier

It’s a tiny step but a hugely symbolic one that will once again put the role of the songwriter front and center and remind everyone of the songwriter’s vital contribution to music and the industry. And, ultimately, it will play a part in ensuring that these will become the best of times for everybody, including the songwriters and music publishers.”
