RESERVOIR SIGNS #1 HIT WRITER-PRODUCER JON GREEN TO A WORLDWIDE PUBLISHING DEAL
Reservoir announces the signing of #1 hit writer-producer and multi-instrumentalist Jon Green to a worldwide publishing deal. The deal includes global rights to Green’s future works.
Early in his career, Green started his own band, The Bonfires, before earning a reputation as one of the UK’s most sought-after live and studio session musicians. More recently, Green has parlayed this experience into an increasingly successful songwriting and producing career, spanning multiple genres including Country, Rock, Pop, Dance, and Singer-songwriter.
Green is currently on the charts, having co-written and co-produced Kylie Minogue’s current single “Say Something,” the lead track off her upcoming fifteenth studio album, Disco. He previously collaborated with Minogue on several tracks off her 2018 #1 UK album, Golden.
The London-based, Green continues to spend a lot of time in the US, particularly in Nashville, where he has fostered relationships with some of the most influential and successful music makers. He co-wrote Lady A’s 2020 #1 US Billboard Country Airplay song “What If I Never Get Over You,” plus “Live Forever” from Kane Brown’s #1 Billboard 200 album Experiment and “Questions” from Little Big Town’s #1 US Billboard Country Album Nightfall, the latter of which he also co-produced.
Continuing the collaborations on chart-topping projects, he co-wrote and/or co-produced cuts off Linkin Park’s #1 US Billboard 200 album One More Light, plus Paloma Faith’s “Surrender” from her #1 UK album The Architect. He also co-wrote and/or co-produced multiple songs on James Bay’s multi-Platinum debut album Chaos and the Calm (Deluxe), as well as Bay’s follow up 2018 album Electric Light. Green has also written hits for other top artists, including 5 Seconds of Summer, Maisie Peters, Aquilo, Jason Mraz, Jack Savoretti, and more.
“I’m thrilled and really excited to start a new chapter with some new faces and old friends, too,” said Green. “Reservoir has been making great waves and I’m really honoured to be part of the team.”
Reservoir UK Head of Creative Charlie Pinder added, “Jon is a phenomenal songwriter and music maker. I’ve watched his career grow over the last few years, and along with the wider team at Reservoir, have felt for a while that he’d be the perfect fit for our roster. We intend to build on his existing momentum and profile in the UK and Nashville, and to also open up opportunities for him further afield.”
