Native Tongue welcomes two new hires to its publishing team

Music Publishing has expanded its team with two new hires, taking the indie publisher’s headcount to 16 across its Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland offices.

Music licensing executive Denise Sharp joins in a Client Relations role after departing Music Sales in May this year.

Sharp will focus on driving sync licensing business for the company’s local and international repertoire, which includes several hundred thousand musical works.

“I’ve known Denise for many years, and when she applied for this role it was clear she was the perfect fit,” said managing director .

“We’re very happy to have Denise on board and excited by the opportunities that will be presented to our local writers and international catalogues.

Former intern Campbell Revie has also secured an assistant role, working across the creative and copyright teams.

“Campbell is at least the fifth Native Tongue staff member that started as a paid intern before gaining full-time employment, which is really great. We love having him on the team,” added Gough

Gough has been busy signing local songwriting talent this year too, inking Victorian singer-songwriter Ben Stewart in August and Songwriter and producer Gab Strum in July.

The Native Tongue catalogue includes songs by Elvis Presley, George Harrison, Pink Floyd, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Roy Orbison, and Tom Petty through to Aurora, Daft Punk, Galantis, James Blake, Justice, Mark Ronson and Ty Dolla $ign.

The independent music publisher, which set up shop in 2003, also represents a number of international catalogues, including the likes of Because Editions, Concord Music Publishing, Domino Publishing Company, Pulse Publishing and Wixen Music.
