Downtown has established offices in Los Angeles, Nashville, London, and Amsterdam, maintaining one of the most favorable song-to-staff ratios in the industry.
The creative partnerships Downtown develops with songwriter clients is at the heart of our business. Beyond writing for popular recording artists, we also offer clients the opportunity to craft original works for a variety of film, television, advertising, & video game productions. The success of our songwriters has led Billboard Magazine to repeatedly rank Downtown as one of the top ten music publishers in the United States.
Through Songtrust, our in-house technology division, we have developed proprietary applications that power the Downtown administration and creative platforms. Downtown also provides publishing operations for businesses including CD Baby and The Orchard. In 2011, we launched the world’s first self-service royalty collection platform for emerging songwriters and artists, bringing the previously offline and undemocratic process of global royalty collection into the 21st century.
Today, the Downtown catalog includes over seventy years of popular song, film score and musical theatre. Downtown proudly represents the works of such diverse and accomplished songwriters as John Lennon & Yoko Ono, "Undercover King of Pop" Ryan Tedder, The Kinks’ Ray Davies, Hans Zimmer, John Prine, Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx, Seal, Carla Bruni, Santigold, Neon Trees and One Direction.
