NEW YORK, January 31, 2017–Reservoir announces that it has struck a deal with Perfect Storm Music Group to bring Grammy-nominated songwriter Ali Tamposi to the Reservoir roster. The deal includes global publishing rights to Tamposi’s entire catalog, including future works. Tamposi is currently charting with DJ Snake and Justin Bieber’s global hit “Let Me Love You”, which topped the U.S. Pop radio charts and reached #1 in twelve territories around the world, in addition to achieving Diamond, Platinum, or multi-Platinum certifications in ten regions.

Based in Los Angeles, Tamposi is best known for co-writing Kelly Clarkson’s 4x multi-Platinum selling single “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” which topped fifteen Billboard charts upon release and earned nominations for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards. In addition to contributing to Beyoncé's #1, 3x multi-Platinum, and Grammy Award winning album I am…Sasha Fierce, Tamposi has written for a host of other pop and rock superstars including Christina Aguilera, Ciara, Demi Lovato, Gary Clark Jr., Lea Michelle, Nickelback, and One Direction. She also served as vocal coach and mentor to Simon Cowell’s team on the final season of The X Factor in the U.S.
The day-to-day Creative will be supervised in Los Angeles by Reservoir SVP of Creative and A&R Donna Caseine. Additionally, Reservoir’s Creative teams in New York and London will continue to support Tamposi in her future work.
“I am absolutely thrilled that Ali has joined the Reservoir family," Caseine said. “Ali is a hit maker with an impressive record of accomplishments and endless talent. We are excited to be a part of her team and contribute to her continued success.”
