The key to a good song is often times Collaboration. You could say this also applies to music publishing. We are extremely proud to carry this attribute through to our Music Publishing Division with two unbelievably talented individuals and their company’s, John Massa (Music & Media Intl’.) and Jean Davoust (Jean-Davoust-Editeur).
John Massa is President of Music & Media Int’l. As a young musician John was taken under the wing of music industry heavyweight the late Billy Meshel, and has emerged as a major player in Music Publishing Worldwide. It was a mutual best friend Kay Rickets, President of Japan’s Taiyo Music who introduced Steve to Billy Meshel & John Massa, this led to a sub-publishing arrangement which has evolved into multiple collaborations in the Music and Entertainment Business.Billy Meshel Memorial
Jean Davoust is a leader in the French Music Business. As one of the most respected Music Publishers in Europe Jean heads up the French MPA and was long time Managing Director of Warner Chappell Music where Jean and Steve first met. Their relationship has evolved tremendously as they joined forces aligning their music interests and multiple side projects that they manage together.
