NEW YORK, NY – September 6, 2023 – Digital rights management company Word Collections ( www.wordcollections.com/), has entered in agreements to provide global publishing administration for acclaimed singer Grace Potter, Alabama soulsters St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Nashville rockers All Them Witches, rising jazz saxophonist Lakecia Benjamin, alt-rockers American Football, indie folk group The 502’s, The Walters and more. The news follows the recent announcement of a $5 million investment in the company lead by Metallica’s Black Squirrel Partners.
These signings continue the rapid expansion of Word Collections, establishing a new cohort of well-known hitmakers who have chosen to align with a first of its kind administration company that removes intermediaries, circumvents black boxes, reduces admin fees, identifies original, live, and cover versions of all recordings of songs and pays songwriters, publishers and authors more money, more quickly with unparalleled accuracy and transparency.
Word Collections was founded and launched by Jeff Price (formerly TuneCore, Audiam) in July 2020 with an initial focus on global publishing administration for comedians and other spoken word artists. A year later, in August 2021, Word Collections expanded its global publishing administration repertoire to include musical compositions. Word Collections currently administers the publishing catalogs for Metallica, Greta Van Fleet, Thomas Dolby, Songwriters Guild Of America, Gerencia360, St. Nicholas, Baroness, Metallica’s Kirk Hammett, The Offspring’s Bryan “Dexter” Holland, Shriekback, DLG., Bazanji, Gomba Music, Robin Williams, George Carlin, Margaret Cho, Jerry Seinfeld, David Cross, Ron White, Bill Hicks, Bill Engvall, Billy Crystal, and numerous other songwriters, publishers, authors and spoken word comedians.
