Golnar Khosrowshahi Named Indie Power Player


Golnar Khosrowshahi, Reservoir Media’s founder and president, has been listed as one of 2017’s Indie Power Players, as revealed by Billboard. The list of 51 independent music business mains include executives, distributors, labels, and publishers—all of whom have mastered their craft in the industry. Khosrowshahi told Billboard, “[Reservoir] has established itself as a creative force fostering opportunities for its songwriters.”

Billboard praises Khosrowshahi’s success, mentioning the 12 songs in the Billboard Hot 100 in June 2017, all co-written by six of Reservoir’s writers: Ali Tamposi, Ina Wroldsen, 2 Chainz, Jamie Hartman, and Offset and Takeoff of Migos. Billboard also specifies hits “It Ain’t Me” co-written by Ali Tamposi and Calvin Harris’s new album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1, which features two tracks with Migos.

In addition to Khosrowshahi being listed as an Indie Power Player, as reported by Billboard, Reservoir has a Top 10 US market share for Q2 of 2017. Revealed on the list as #7, with 2.1% of the total market share, marks Reservoir’s first appearance on the Publisher’s Quarterly US Market Share report, listing the company among the ranks with the majors, Kobalt, and BMG.
