WIXEN MUSIC PUBLISHING, INC. Announces Signing Of Legendary John Prine‏

WIXEN MUSIC PUBLISHING, INC. proudly announces that they’ve signed an agreement with the legendary and influential singer and songwriter John Prine. According to company president Randall Wixen, this agreement begins July 1 and encompasses all songs that the multiple Grammy Award winner controls including “Lake Marie,” “Unwed Fathers” and “One Red Rose.”

“John Prine is one of America’s great national treasures, and a songwriter’s songwriter,” says Randall Wixen.   “It is with the greatest honor and respect that we begin our relationship with Mr. Prine and his family.   To say that we are excited about working with one of our industry icons would be an understatement.   We are eager to begin the process of seeking new uses for his songs.”

In an April 2016 New York Times feature, writer Dan Barry hailed Prine‘s “gift for articulating moments almost beyond words. His songs have won the respect of Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Pink Floyd, the Library of Congress, you name it. One admirer, Bob Dylan, once described his canon as ‘pure Proustian existentialism’ and ‘Midwestern mind trips to the nth degree.'”

With an office in Los Angeles and a sister company, Wixen Music UK Ltd. in London, the companies administer the song catalogs of many top artists from the last 50 years, ranging from , the DoorsNeil Young and Tom Petty, to the Black Keys Andrew Bird and Fitz & The Tantrums.
