SESAC, the nation’s most innovative performing rights organization, has been in the headlines of late with the major signings of singer/songwriter, producer and the best-selling female artist of all time Mariah Carey and multiple GRAMMY Award-winner Zac Brown along with the groundbreaking Kurt Cobain catalog, which includes songs made famous by Nirvana.  In addition to the superstar affiliations, SESAC has also renewed representation of the catalog of blues pioneer Robert Johnson and completed an agreement to represent the copyright of “Unchained Melody,” the 1965 hit by the Righteous Brothers, which also was featured in the popular film “Ghost.”

The momentum at SESAC continues to build as the company moves into the third quarter of 2014, with a new Music Row headquarters under construction, a prominent voice on Capitol Hill regarding copyright law and new initiatives and strategies underway to maximize royalties for all songwriter and publisher affiliates.
