Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Downtown Music Publishing has launched a joint venture with independent publisher Cowboys & Pirates. “We are running the marathon with our songwriters”, says the latter’s Ty Baisden.

The first two signings are instrumentalist John Key and songwriter James ‘SuperChilly’ Carver, who may or may not also enjoy long distance running.

The band is led by Devon Allman and Duane Betts, sons of the Allman Brothers Band’s Gregg Allman and Dickey Betts. “We’re really psyched”, says Allman. “We are very happy”, says Betts. “We are extremely grateful”, says BMG’s John Loeffler.
