Spirit Music Group expands into Miami; inks JV with Latin hitmaker Rudy Pérez

Spirit Music Group is opening a new office in Miami, having signed a joint venture with legendary Latin hitmaker Rudy Pérez.

Spirit’s JV with Pérez will enable him to identify writers and artists to sign to Spirit Miami.

Rudy Pérez has composed more than 1,000 songs, with over 300 of them having been either No.1 or Top 10 hits.

Pérez is a founder of the The Latin Grammys (LARAS) and is a co-founder of La Musa (the Latin Songwriters Hall of Fame).

Pérez has written or produced tracks for Beyoncé, Julio Iglesias, Christina Aguilera, IL Divo, Natalie Cole, Michael Bolton, Luis Miguel, Jose Feliciano, Marc Anthony, Jon Secada, Cyndi Lauper, Roberto Carlos, Los Temerarios, Juan Gabriel, Alejandro Fernandez, Marco Antonio Solis, Jose Luis Rodriguez (El Puma) Alexandre Pires, Arturo Sandoval, Chayene, Luis Fonsi, Dima Bilan, Leonid Agutin and Jaci Velasquez, and Juan Luis Guerra, among others.

In January 2019, Spirit Music Group executives Jon Singer (pictured) and Ross Cameron formed Lyric Capital Group to take ownership of Spirit Music Group and secure a recapitalization of over $350 million.

“Rudy’s track record speaks for itself and the Spirit team is fortunate to have a partner in Rudy to take our Latin division to another level and have immediate impact.”
