Snow Patrol-owned publishing company Polar Patrol has announced an alliance with the R&S label which will see the firm working with artists on both R&S and its imprint Apollo, presumably on song and publishing ventures.
The deal was apparently first suggested after a chance meeting between Snow Patrol’s Jonny Quinn and Johnny McDaid and R&S owners Renaat Vandepapeliere and Sabine Maes at a gig.
Says Vandepapeliere: “After brain storming about working closer with Snow Patrol’s publishing company, Polar Patrol, it felt like a perfect and natural progression; a massive honour for Sabine and myself”.
Quinn added: “Polar Patrol are delighted to join forces with the legendary R&S records who are celebrating 30 years in 2013, which is no mean feat in the music business. We are looking forward to working closely together on their exciting roster of writers and artists”.
Publishing rights created via the alliance will be administered through Polar Patrol’s partnership with Kobalt Music.
