President and CEO of Position Music Tyler Bacon announced the signing of a new worldwide publishing deal with songwriter and artist Kanner. Managed by Drew Kaklamanos and Matt Galle of Photo Finish Mgmt, as well as Bret Disend of Ozone Entertainment, Kanner has quickly become a real force in the songwriting scene over the past two years with credits on songs for Katy Perry, Royal & the Serpent, Krewella, Siiickbrain, Rebecca Black, Scene Queen, Honey Revenge, Mckenna Grace, and more.
"I am beyond excited to be working with the incredible team at Position Music. Everyone’s love for the music is contagious and their commitment to their writers speaks for itself - a true family atmosphere. Having watched the continued growth, I can’t wait for the future and to keep creating,” says KANNER.
KANNER co-wrote Katy Perry's single “Electric” that served as the theme song for Pokémon's 25th Anniversary Campaign and was recently featured on the cover of Spotify’s editorial playlist, Created by Women (as part of their Notable playlist series) for co-writing Rhea Raj’s “Devil in a Dress”. She has forthcoming cuts with PVRIS, LøLø, Oxymorons, The Lunar Year, and Rain City Drive that are all expected to be released later this year.
“KANNER’'s ability to get the best out of artists is what makes her such a special writer, and why she is in such high demand. Her hustle is only exceeded by her talent. I could not be more proud of all that she has accomplished. I’m honored that she and her team are allowing us to take this journey with her. We are looking forward to everything that is yet to come,” says David Surnow, A&R at Position Music.
KANNER joins a growing Position Music publishing roster that includes John “Feldy” Feldmann, Dru “Falconry” DeCaro, Harmony “H-Money” Samuels, Jack LaFrantz, Krupa, No Love for the Middle Child, ¿Téo?, Kyle Reynolds, Kid Bloom, Brandyn Burnette, JV, Sam Tinnesz, and more. Position Music made industry headlines this spring after the indie label and publishing company closed a significant strategic investment from Vesper Company.
