WCM will also assist HARTBEAT in expanding its music repertoire across HARTBEAT Studios, HARTBEAT Media, and PULSE, as well as provide creative support for a variety of music projects and access to its award-winning production music library.

“This deal was made possible with the support of our Co-Chairs Guy Moot and Carianne Marshall, and we’re all very proud that HARTBEAT is entrusting us as their first publishing partner,” said WCM Senior Vice President of Creative Services, Ashley Winton. “We have an exciting opportunity to not only administer their music, but also cultivate connections with our songwriters for future projects.”


HARTBEAT President & Chief Distribution Officer, Jeff Clanagan, added “HARTBEAT is thrilled to partner with leading global publisher Warner Chappell Music to develop and build out a first-of-its-kind HARTBEAT music library. This partnership marks a pivotal moment for HARTBEAT as the company looks to build out its own music publishing arm as a part of our larger brand IP.”
