Reservoir, one of the leading independent music companies, has formed a joint venture with 19 Entertainment, the company that produces American Idol, in a move that will enable the two companies to sign publishing deals with American Idol contestants.

Reservoir is one of the most respected music publishers in the business, known for working with some of the biggest names in the industry, including Lady Gaga, Billie Eilish, and Drake. This new partnership will allow American Idol contestants to access Reservoir’s vast network of resources, enabling them to take full advantage of opportunities that may arise following their appearance on the show.

The joint venture will provide Reservoir with exclusive rights to the publishing of original music created by American Idol contestants, as well as the rights to exploit their recordings worldwide. As part of the deal, Reservoir will also have access to 19 Entertainment’s extensive network of contacts, enabling their artists to gain further exposure through multiple channels.

“Nothing excites us more than finding and breaking new talent,” said Golnar Khosrowshahi, president and COO of Reservoir. “Our new partnership with 19 Entertainment will help us to do just that by connecting us with the incredible pool of talent that emerges from American Idol year after year.”

American Idol has been one of the most successful reality shows of all time, having produced some of the most famous names in the music industry, including Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and Adam Lambert. The show has remained a staple of American television for over a decade, consistently pulling in high ratings and providing a platform for up-and-coming musicians to showcase their talent.

The joint venture between Reservoir and 19 Entertainment will allow American Idol contestants to take their music careers to the next level, providing them with the resources and support that they need to achieve success in the fiercely competitive music industry.

The move is a sign of the shifting landscape of the music industry, which has been transformed in recent years by the rise of digital platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music. As more and more artists turn to these platforms to distribute their music, publishers like Reservoir are becoming increasingly important, providing the network and resources that artists need to succeed in a complex and rapidly-changing environment.

“This partnership is a perfect example of how the music industry is evolving,” said Khosrowshahi. “By bringing together our network of contacts with the incredible talent that American Idol produces, we can create a powerful force that will help to shape the future of the music industry.”

For American Idol contestants, the partnership represents an opportunity to take their careers to the next level, working with one of the most respected publishers in the business to create and promote their music. With the backing of Reservoir and 19 Entertainment, they will be better equipped than ever to succeed in the competitive and fast-paced world of the music industry.

“At the heart of this partnership is a shared commitment to finding and breaking new talent,” said Khosrowshahi. “We are excited to work with 19 Entertainment to create a platform that will enable American Idol contestants to reach their full potential and achieve the success that they deserve.”
