The songwriters represented under the new agreements include Adam Granduciel, Anthony Lamarca, Jason Balla, Emily Kempf, Christopher Bear, Chris Taylor, Daniel Rossen, David Hartley, Edward Droste, Fred Nicolaus, Jon Natchez, Robbie Bennett and Zach Condon, to whom Secretly Publishing will deliver the transparent, personalized services that have made them one of the most career-committed and industry-shaping forces in the field.

"We're excited to welcome this incredible group of songwriters to the Secretly Publishing family," says Kathleen Cook, Secretly's Managing Director of Publishing & Sync. "Collectively, they have soundtracked some of my favorite movies, shows, and real-life memories, and it's an honor to be entrusted with the stewardship of this catalog. Additionally, I would be hard-pressed to find a manager who is a stronger advocate for her artists than Ami Spishock. I look forward to working closely with Ami and the whole Fort William team."

Fort William founder Ami Spishock adds, "Fort William has always supported independent publishers and has benefited because of it. We're thrilled to add to the growing family over at Secretly Publishing. Kathy and her team are committed to working hard, getting placements and making sure collections are clear, correct and timely. I'm excited for this relationship as we go into this new era of the music business."
