Perfect Songs, one of the UK's longest-running independent music publishers, enjoyed a commercial and creative renaissance in 2012. A management restructure, the hiring of new staff and signing of new talent lead to two UK No. 1 singles, Top 5 chart placings around the world, one of the highest profile TV ad synchs, and a string of movie placements.
As profiled in Music Week in the spring of 2012, Perfect has built a fresh new team of business and creative talent. Ally Horn as MD, Mel Redmond (ex-Sony ATV) as Head of Publishing, Ian Usher (ex-PWL) as Head of A&R, publishing assistant Kim Jarrett and A&R Tom Cater (R&S Records) are based full-time at the company's London headquarters. Their freelance consultants include synch agent Tracie London (GMIX).
Perfect Songs is part of the Sarm Music Group, whose chairman and founder is Trevor Horn CBE. As of 2012, Perfect began working in partnership with its sister companies to offer all songwriters special rates on studios and writing rooms (via Sarm Studios), rehearsal facilities and backline hire (via Music Bank) and record label infrastructure (via Stiff Records and ZTT Records).
