SESAC Signs David Crosby

Grammy-winning songwriter and recording artist David Crosby, best known as a folk-rock pioneer, who continues to capture generations of audiences with his timeless music and one-of-a-kind harmonies, has signed with SESAC Performing Rights.

Crosby has been a prolific songwriter throughout his career as both a solo artist, and as a member of groups. During his time as a member of The Byrds, he penned hits like "What’s Happening," and "Why?" After departing from The Byrds and forming Crosby, Stills & Nash, Crosby wrote influential songs like "Guinnevere," "Almost Cut My Hair" and "Wooden Ships."

"With his brilliant storytelling and masterful lyrics, it’s no doubt David’s music and creative influence continues to thrive," says John Josephson, Chairman and CEO, SESAC Holdings, Inc. "His career and success are a testament to his enduring songs and unending talent, and SESAC is proud to welcome David to our affiliate family."

Most recently, Crosby’s new documentary 'David Crosby: Remember My Name' premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival with critical praise. The Hollywood Reporter called the documentary ‘touching’ and ‘nostalgia-infused’ while Variety said, 'There’s a spirit inside him that won’t fade.' The film was picked up by Sony Pictures Classic for North American distribution. His latest album, Here If You Listen, was released in October 2018 and features Lighthouse band members and fellow SESAC affiliates Becca Stevens and Michael League.
