Reservoir Media Announces First Signing to New Nashville Office

Reservoir announced the signing of #1 and Platinum-selling country songwriter and singer Josh Mirenda to a worldwide publishing deal. The deal includes an interest in Mirenda’s entire catalog of works, plus exclusive representation on all future titles.

A Nashville native, Mirenda has co-written three #1 singles in as many years. The Platinum-selling “Somewhere On A Beach,” performed by Dierks Bentley, topped Billboard’s Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs charts and earned Mirenda the ASCAP Song of the Year award. Meanwhile, “They Don’t Know” and “Girl Like You” written for frequent collaborator Jason Aldean rose to #1 on the Mediabase Country Airplay chart and the Billboard Country Airplay chart, respectively.

In 2017, Mirenda released his debut single as a performer, “I Got You,” which has since climbed to 22 million streams globally. Following the launch of his 2018 self-titled EP, Mirenda went back to the studio with plans to drop a full-length debut album later this year. No stranger to the stage, he has spent the last few years on the road opening for artists including Easton Corbin, Rodney Atkins, Dylan Scott, and Chris Young.

“Josh is an unbelievably talented songwriter and artist,” said Reservoir EVP of Creative John Ozier. “He has already written three huge hits and is just getting started. We are so excited to be working with him as we build out the Reservoir Nashville roster.”

Added Mirenda, “I am both honored and excited for this opportunity to work alongside John Ozier, Greg Gallo, and the entire Reservoir staff. Their commitment to writers, as well as artists, is unparalleled.”

Reservoir Signs Multi-Platinum Selling Songwriter/Artist Ruthanne to a Worldwide Publishing Deal

Reservoir announces the signing of multi-Platinum-selling songwriter and pop recording artist RuthAnne to a worldwide publishing deal. The deal includes titles from RuthAnne’s catalog of hits, plus future works.

Based in London, the Irish-born RuthAnne boasts a string of collaborations with some of the biggest names in pop music from One Direction to Britney Spears. Her chart topping co-writes with Spears (“Work B**ch”), Niall Horan (“Slow Hands”), and Martin Garrix and Bebe Rexha (“In the Name of Love”) have amassed two billion streams between them and received Platinum or multi-Platinum certifications, while she also co-wrote breakthrough songs for One Direction, Westlife, and JoJo, among others. Moreover, her collaboration with JRY, “Pray” off Universal Pictures’ Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack, on which she is also a featured vocalist, contributed to the album’s Billboard 200 #1.

Also an accomplished performer, RuthAnne is set to launch her forthcoming debut album as a solo artist later this year. Effortlessly blending authentic songwriting with pop sensibilities, she celebrated the release of her latest single “Superman” just last month, with previous singles including “Liquid,” “It Is What It Is,” and “The Vow” each topping millions of streams worldwide. Meanwhile, on the road, she has shared stages with the likes of Alanis Morrissette and Hozier.

“I’m excited to welcome RuthAnne to the Reservoir family of extraordinary songwriters,” said Reservoir EVP of Creative Donna Caseine. “From the hits that she’s written with and for other artists to her own music, RuthAnne’s songs will be played for years to come. We are honored to be her creative partner during this exciting time in her career.”

“I am beyond happy to sign a publishing deal with Reservoir and join their amazing roster,” added RuthAnne. “I have been a fan of what Donna and the entire Reservoir team have been doing in the industry for some time now, and I’m excited for all the amazing things to come from working together.”
