About us:

At Warner Chappell Music, we shape the culture of songwriting and champion songs that resonate for generations by creating transformational opportunities for songwriters everywhere.

Before the fans and fame, the soundtracks and syncs, there is the song. And before the song comes the songwriter – the heart of an art form that defines generations, and the soul of our business. Songwriters are our inspiration; we are their partners, collaborators, and crusaders.

Songwriters shape culture; and here at WCM we help hone their craft, build their careers, and protect their legacies. We value curiosity, collaboration, and commitment – which helps set us apart and helps us in our commitment and global service to our songwriters.

We are Warner Chappell Music – where songwriters are heard.
