Gavin Rossdale Inks Publishing Deal With Roc Nation
Roc Nation has added Bush frontman and newly minted Voice UK coach Gavin Rossdale to its roster, signing the artist to an exclusive publishing deal, Jay Z's entertainment company announced on Wednesday (Oct. 26).
"I’m thrilled to be partnering with Roc Nation for the next chapter of my career," Rossdale said in a release. "This is a creative company with a forward-thinking team and a passion for music. I’m excited for what lies ahead."
The Roc Nation deal comes after Rossdale and Bush became official clients of ICM Partners with representation in all areas, Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter reported last month.
Rossdale has fronted the multi-platinum rock band since their 1994 debut Sixteen Stone. Bush has gone on to sell close to 20 million records in the United States and Canada, with a catalog that boasts five alt-rock chart-toppers: "Comedown," "Glycerine," "Swallowed," "The Chemicals Between Us" and "The Sound of Winter." After a 10-year hiatus, the group made a comeback with 2011's The Sea of Memories, and 2014's Man on the Run.
Since its inception in 2008, Roc Nation has also functioned as a record label, management and publishing company, as well as a sports agency. The company is home to big-name acts like Rihanna, Shakira and J. Cole.
