Sony/ATV Music Publishing has signed songwriter/producer Kevin Kadish to a worldwide deal. The agreement includes the Meghan Trainor hit “All About That Bass,” which Kadish penned with Trainor. He not only co-wrote Trainor’s debut single, but programmed the drums and bass, played guitar, and produced the track.
Martin Bandier, Sony/ATV Chairman and CEO, said: “We’re really excited at Sony/ATV to have Kevin Kadish as an exclusive songwriter. ‘All About The Bass’ is clearly one of the biggest songs of the year and we know there is a lot more to come from him.”
Kadish said, “I’m excited to start this new chapter in my career with Sony/ATV. From their amazing creative staff, to their thorough collections, I think they’re the perfect fit for me. I’m honored to be in the Sony family.”
The song has sold 2.7 million downloads in the States according to Nielsen SoundScan, and has been certified 2x platinum by the RIAA. Trainor is a writer for Nashville’s Big Yellow Dog Music.
