Influence Media Partners has acquired a number of copyrights in the catalogue of Julia Michaels, including the writer’s share of hits such as Justin Bieber’s ‘Sorry’, Ed Sheeran’s ‘Dive’ and Selena Gomez’s ‘Bad Liar’.

“Like Carole King, Sia and Bruno Mars before her, Julia Michaels belongs in the pantheon of great songwriters who can write classics for themselves as well as other artists”, says Influence Media founder Lylette Pizarro. “We’ve wanted to be in business with Julia since the days we were founded, in 2018, and are THRILLED that her team took a chance on us in what was a very competitive deal-making process”.

Michaels herself adds: “I’m excited to team up with Lylette, Lynn and the Influence Media team to put some of my favourite songs from the first chapter of my career into the trusted hands of two badass female execs. I’m excited and proud that my music will continue to touch new people for years to come through their expertise”.
