Global independent peermusic has acquired Accorder Music Publishing, one of the UK’s biggest independent film and television publishers.
Accorder Music is best known for representing independent film and TV productions companies and a roster of composers who compose for popular shows such as Great British Bake Off, River Monsters, Michael McIntyre’s Big Show, Hunted, Endeavour, The Jesus Code, How We Got To Now, The Great American Read, Becca’s Bunch and Teletubbies.
Anne Miller, Director of TV & Film at Accorder Music, said “Accorder has grown organically over the past eight years and the time was right to partner with a forward-thinking publisher who has the same vision of growth and without a doubt that publisher was peermusic.”
Nigel Elderton peermusic’s European President said: “This is an extremely important acquisition for peermusic as it brings together Accorder’s expertise in the area of Film and TV composition, music supervision and song placement coupled with peermusic’s global reach of 30 offices worldwide and back office systems and resources.
“I am delighted that Anne and her team feel that we are the right fit for them as we certainly share a similar philosophy and vision.”
