New York, NY (July 9, 2020) – Spirit Music Group, one of the world’s leading global independent music publishing companies, has signed a publishing deal with R&B singer/songwriter, David Lyn.
David Lyn is the younger brother of Grammy award-winning producer IzyBeats (Koffee, Jorja Smith, Lila Iké). The Jamaican-American Miami native just released his debut single “Can’t Breathe,” produced by Neri Beats, off his upcoming EP set to drop this Summer. After a year of collaborating with established music creatives across the USA and UK, David has become a heavily sought-after songwriter and skillfully contributed to Koffee's “W” featuring Gunna.
“David’s natural talent and songwriting instincts really set him apart. Besides writing hits for other artists, he is using his creative platform to help shine a light on social and political issues. We are proud to welcome David to the Spirit Music Group team and I look forward to seeing what we can build together,” said Nancy Matalon, Vice President, A&R, Spirit Music Group.
“David is a hugely exciting talent and a fantastic addition to our global roster. We are delighted that he has chosen to work with us and, together with Ron and the Creative Titans team, we look forward to adding value and to achieving great success going forward,” said Rak Sanghvi, President, Spirit Music Group.
“We are excited to work with David and Ron and I look forward to many successes together,” said Joe Borrino, Chief Operating Officer/Chief Financial Officer, Spirit Music Group.
“David is, undoubtedly, one of the most talented acts on our management roster; he brings a different dynamic to the music industry,” said Ron André Elvis Telford, co-founder of Creative Titans. “Nancy, Rak, Joe and the rest of the team at Spirit Music Group will surely help amplify his skills and create a space where all parties can enjoy chart-topping success."
In 2019, Spirit Music Group executives Jon Singer and Ross Cameron formed Lyric Capital Group to take ownership of Spirit Music Group and secure a recapitalization of over $350 million. The capital raise allows Spirit to continue to build upon its already impressive legacy and community of renowned artists and songwriters. Now wholly-owned by the newly formed Lyric Capital Group, Spirit Music Group remains a strong, independent publisher.
