Kobalt Music Copyrights SARL has acquired the global publishing rights to Steve Winwood’s song catalog.
The Grammy-winning British artist has penned a raft of hits from the late ‘60s to now, and has enjoyed star turns as frontman with The Spencer Davis Group, Traffic, Blind Faith and as a solo artist. His works include the late-‘60s pop classics "Gimme Some Lovin'" and "I'm a Man." He's had solo smashes with such songs as “Higher Love,” “Roll With It,” “Holding On,” “Back In The High Life Again” and “Valerie,” the chorus of which featured in Eric Prydz’ club hit from 2004, “Call On Me.”
KMC, an entity advised by Kobalt Capital Ltd, now controls Winwood's entire catalog of 177 songs. Through the arrangement, KMC has acquired both the publisher’s share of the copyrights, as well as the writer’s share (excluding public performance royalties).
