The Blue Mountain Story
For 50 years, Blue Mountain has worked with the very best songwriters from around the world and currently controls a catalogue of 10,000 songs.
The cornerstone of Blue Mountain Music is the global administration of the entire Bob Marley song catalogue. Just a glimpse at the tracklisting for Legend shows the incredible quality of the songs comprising the Marley catalogue. Together with songs from Burning Spear, Black Uhuru, The Congos, The Heptones, Third World and many others, Blue Mountain has long been established as a goldmine of Jamaican songs.
The association with Island Records has resulted in Blue Mountain Music working with the very best songwriters in many genres, from John Martyn, Spooky Tooth and Free to U2. The late 1960s and early 1970s produced some important British psychedelic and pop music by bands such as Nirvana, Art, The Smoke, Twink, Supertramp’s Roger Hodgson, Jess Roden and others. Later, West African stars Salif Keita and Baaba Maal added to the mix.
Currently Blue Mountain Music is proud to publish and work with such writers as Manu Chao, John Grant, Ali Love, Paul Marshall (Lone Wolf), I Break Horses, David Tattersall (Wave Pictures) and Johan Karlberg (The Very Best).
