Bajan musician signs publishing deal for German market

BRIDGETOWN, BARBADOS (April 17, 2012) — Following his participation at MIDEM 2012, Barbadian musician Andre Woodvine has signed a co-publishing deal with German company “The Audio Factory”. The company, which is involved in both music production and the promotion of music for licensing, signed the agreement with the artiste coming out of meetings at the recently held MIDEM. Woodvine attended MIDEM as a part of the Barbados delegation of seven music entrepreneurs led and funded by Invest Barbados in January 2012.

The agreement is the beginning of what will be an ongoing relationship with The Audio Factory. Woodvine explained that the copyright of his 34 original compositions would be assigned to the company for exclusive use in Germany. The Audio Factory will represent his interests by including his music in its catalogue, which is viewed by radio, television and advertising personnel seeking music for inclusion in their projects.
