As a result, Warner/Chappell Music (WCM) will imprint Three Six Zero Publishing, while Warner Bros. Records (WBR) will imprint Three Six Zero Music.

“Three Six Zero Group is a place where artists can develop and grow with support from all areas of our business,” said company co-founder Mark Gillespie. “Warner Bros. Records and Warner/Chappell Music are powerhouses in contemporary music.
“There’s no better group to team with as we look at new ways to blend genres and help developing artists break through and established artists cross over.” Co-founder Dean Wilson added, “We’re extending our services with collaborations like these to give artists as many opportunities as possible to let their music and talent reach full potential.”
Cameron Strang, Chairman & CEO, Warner Bros. Records and Warner/Chappell Music, added, “By bringing together Warner Bros.
