Sunny Side Up Licensing will work with some of the world’s leading music publishers.
Michael Gottlieb and Nick Cooke have joined forces to launch a new agency.
Sunny Side Up Licensing has been created to represent licensing opportunities utilising some of the largest libraries of song lyrics both in the UK and globally.
Some of the world’s leading music publishers have signed agreements with the new agency, giving it representation rights to the copyright of millions of songs.
The agency has already begun work with key partners, with full details due to be announced shortly.
The agency name was inspired by the fact that the most covered song in the world – Yesterday by The Beatles – was originally called Scrambled Eggs.
Michael commented: “As eggs worked so well for John and Paul, then Sunny Side Up felt like the right fit for us, too. We are proud to represent the lyrics of timeless songs, which continue to resonate for people today.”
Nick added: “Music and song lyrics form such an important part in all our lives, and are the back drop to key events in peoples memories which we are now applying to products. Initial reaction from licensees and retailers has been very strong.”
Both Michael and Nick will continue to manage their own individual licensing and consultancy businesses alongside their roles at Sunny Side Up.
