By CMU Editorial | Published on Monday 12 November 2012
Music services company Kobalt, best known in the music publishing space but rapidly expanding into other areas of the industry too, has launched its label services business in Australia.
Kobalt launched an artist and label services unit in the UK back in January, aided by the acquisition of digital distributor AWAL. In Australia, Kobalt Label Services will be headed up by Ben Godding, who has previously worked for both Universal Music and EMI in the region, though was most recently at independent management and marketing company Original Music.
Confirming the launch of a label services division in his territory, the boss of Kobalt Music Australia Simon Moor is quoted by The Music Network thus: “With the establishment of Kobalt Label Services in Australia and New Zealand and the appointment of Ben Godding, Kobalt continues to create a better alternative for artists, writers and content owners to take control of their future and maximise the value of their music”.
