Claudia Brant, the award-winning singer/songwriter whose credits include Luis Fonsi’s “No me doy por vencido” and Ricky Martin’s “Lo mejor de mi vida eres tu,” has signed a global publishing administration agreement with Sony/ATV Music Publishing.
Brant, one of the few prominent female songwriters in Latin music, returns to Sony/ATV after a stint at Universal Music Publishing Group.
“With over two thousand songs recorded, multiple awards, and 30 years of my life dedicated to songwriting, it’s clear to me now that Sony/ATV is where I belong,” said Brant in a statement. “It is my honor to be a part of this publishing powerhouse where songwriters are not only heard and understood but respected and taken care of. I am looking forward to getting back to work with my friend Jorge Mejia, whose hard work and dedication has greatly impacted my career. Moreover, I am thrilled to find new opportunities for my music under the guidance of the amazing Jon Platt and his team, both in the United States as well as internationally. I’m so glad to finally be back home.”
Brant has songwriting credits with many of Latin music’s biggest stars and beyond, including Camila Cabello, Fifth Harmony, Reik, Il Volo and CNCO. She was also inducted into the Latin Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in 2016 and is a National Trustee board member for The Recording Academy. She won a Grammy award for Best Latin pop album in 2019.
Her deal with Sony/ATV encompasses her prior catalog with the publisher.
Most recently, she created “Canción de Autor Oficial,” a non-profit whose aim is to promote songwriters’ craft and rights. The organization teamed up with MusiCares for a live event concert series to raise money for the COVID-19 relief fund.
Jorge Mejia, Sony/ATV president and CEO for Latin America and US Latin said in a statement: “I have known and worked with Claudia for years, and I couldn’t admire her more for the uncommon dedication, commitment, and respect she brings to her craft. She is the consummate songwriter (not to mention mother, artist, songwriter advocate, the list goes on). Sony/ATV is lucky to be able to welcome her back home.”
