New York, NY (January 5, 2022) – After partnering with Gaither Music Group in 2019, Primary Wave Music continues to strengthen its position in the faith-based market by announcing today they have partnered with the Award-winning Christian singer, Matt Redman, to acquire a stake in the income stream of his music publishing catalog. The deal also encompasses Redman’s master royalties and other rights from the Grammy winner’s entire music publishing catalog which includes several number one records.
Songs included are such classics as “Build My Life,” “Do It Again,” and the Grammy-nominated “Our God,” which was also nominated for Song of the Year at the 2011 Dove Awards. Terms of the deal also include what is probably Matt Redman’s most well-known single, “10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord).” Released in 2011, “10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)” won two Grammy Awards for “Best Contemporary Christian Music Song” and “Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance.” The song, which spent 16 weeks at the top spot on Christian Radio and remained at number 1 on the Christian Songs Chart for 13 weeks, has been included in several compilations and has been covered by over 25 artists.
“I’m so grateful for this new partnership with Primary Wave, and their passion to get behind these songs in a new way,” said Redman. He continues, “They have such a standout reputation across so many genres, so I’m excited to see what lies ahead.”
“Matt Redman’s songs mean so much to so many people and are truly timeless,” says Dominic Pandiscia, Chief Strategy Officer of Gaither Music Group & Primary Wave Business Development. He goes on, “It’s truly an honor to partner with him and his catalog.”
