Warner/Chappell dates its origins back to 1811 and the formation of Chappell & Company, a music publishing house and instrument store on London's Bond Street, making it the oldest company in the WMG family. Its legendary music publishing catalog makes Warner/Chappell a natural first stop for A&R executives and record producers, feature film and television production companies and others looking to record or license some of the world's greatest music. We also administer the music and soundtracks of several third-party television and film producers and studios, including Lucasfilm, Ltd., Hallmark Entertainment and Disney Music Publishing.
In 2007, Warner/Chappell acquired Non-Stop Music, a leader in the fast-growing, high-margin music production business serving the professional world of movies, TV shows, commercials, trailers and radio. Over the past 26 years, Non-Stop has become one of the most influential music production and licensing companies, providing original music and world-renowned, fully administered selections from its library of more than 35,000 song titles. Headquartered in Salt Lake City, Non-Stop features a state-of-the-art recording complex (L.A. East) and has offices in New York, L.A. and London. Non-Stop also maintains affiliate offices or operates through licensees throughout Europe, Australia and Asia.
