Beggars Group has announced a partnership with Ben Turner and Simon Astall of Earworm Music that will see the creation of a new music supervision, licensing and composition company called Colourbox Music.

The new venture will specialise on making and licensing music for film, TV, advertising and games, and will include a publishing division working with writers who focus on bespoke compositions. It will also offer opportunities to artists signed to Beggars’ group of labels.

“We wanted to create a much broader offering for our clients around our work in film, TV and advertising and are excited to partner with the Beggars Group – one of the world’s most respected and valued independent music companies”, say Turner and Astall in a joint statement.

“We’ve really enjoyed the process of collaborating with them in the past, and we are very aligned on a new company, which will act independently of Beggars but have access to their catalogue, composers and artists to create new opportunities in this creative landscape”.

Beggars Group CEO Paul Redding adds: “As our artists and songwriters have become increasingly involved in projects across film, television, advertising and video games, music supervision has been something we have been exploring for a while now”.

“When Ben and Simon approached us to develop a new company that was much more than a traditional supervision company, it was an easy decision”, he goes on. “They have a proven track record and it became immediately clear that their talent would integrate brilliantly with our record and publishing companies to deliver new opportunities for our artists and writers alongside developing an exciting new part to our global business”.
