Our History

Founded in 1995, Spirit Music Group set out to bring music publishing back to its hard driving, entrepreneurial, service- and-results oriented roots. We became a haven for veteran songwriters, buzzing newcomers, and song owners from all genres and parts of the world. By encouraging mentorship, sharing information, and aggressively developing catalogs, Spirit became one of the world’s leading independent music publishers, with over 100,000+ songs spanning decades and genres.

Our experienced team guides you through the publishing process with access to our executives’ insights and regular updates on your income. With our extensive connections, we bring you the opportunities you need to accomplish your musical goals.
