Writer/Producer Steve Freeman has announced the launch of Vices Verses Music. VVM is an independent publishing and artist development company with offices and studios located in Nashville, TN as well as Manhattan Beach, CA.
The company will focus on signing new and established staff writers and producers, catalog acquisition and artist development. “It’s not enough to just write a great song these days, then place all of the pressure on your creative staff to find that song a home. Publishers, especially independents, have to be actively engaged in finding vehicles and outlets for their songs. That’s why we as a company will be putting our money where our mouth is, creatively, by utilizing our resources to find and sign talent across all genres that we want to work and write with, produce and develop for the next level,” says Freeman.
The first writer to sign an exclusive publishing agreement with Vices Verses is former Universal writer John Kennedy, whose hits include LeAnn Rimes’ “Probably Wouldn’t Be This Way” and Jack Ingram’s “Maybe She’ll Get Lonely,” as well as cuts by Faith Hill, Julianne Hough, Billy Ray Cyrus and American Idols Josh Gracin and Bucky Covington.
Freeman comments on signing Kennedy, “I have always been aware and a fan of both John and the huge hits he has written, but honestly, it was listening to the songs that he’s written in the last couple of years that sold me. I heard what he is currently writing and producing and knew we had to have him on our team and writing exclusively for us.”
VVM will be announcing a worldwide administration partnership, additional creative staff, writer and artist signings later on.
