Bayer Sager Inks Pub Deal

Songwriting catalog spans 40 years.

Veteran songwriter Carole Bayer Sager has secured new publishing for her extensive catalog. Eddie Lambert will now represent Sager's work, seeking to license her songs for television, film, commercial and soundtrack opportunities.

Bayer Sager's songbook includes "That's What Friends Are For," "Arthur's Theme," "On My Own," "The Prayer," and other well-known hits. Her work -- for which she has won an Academy Award and a Grammy -- has been recorded by artists including Barbra Streisand, Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, Whitney Houston, Dolly Parton, Aretha Franklin and Celine Dion.

Publishing/label veteran Lambert was most recently VP of film and television music at EMI Capitol Special Markets. He has also held executive roles at 20th Century Fox Music and Motown Records.
