Wrapping up 2014!

20.12.2014, 11:35  |  News  |  By:

fireworks-high-resOk folks, it’s time to start wrapping up for the holidays!

It has been a truly amazing year..here’s a little summary. Our team has, altogether during the year, written or co-written 45 singles with 31 different artists in Finland, Germany, Korea and the US! 8 of the singles have gone Gold and 2 Platinum. 6 albums containing our songs have been certified Gold with one of them reaching triple Platinum. 4 of our songs are in Spotify Top 5 for the year and airplay for our songs has been amazing. We also reached Billboard #5 with a song on the Pentatonix’s EP, co-written by Kasmir, whose solo career in Finland got an almost unprecedentedly great start and he has become one of the most popular artists in Finland in less than a year. On top of these, as a publishing company, we were awarded the Publisher of the Year Award 2014.

These numbers and successes are an amazing achievement and we would like to offer huge congratulations and thank you to our writers and producers as well as to the artists, labels and managements we have the privilege of working with! Thank you, brilliant work!

Let’s continue to build our success together even further in 2015! For now, merry Xmas and happy holidays!
