Company of the Week: Mushroom Music

19th November 2020

Mushroom Music is the most successful independent music publisher in Australasia. Mushroom is a full-service creative publisher established in 1972 by Michael Gudinski (AO) and lead by Managing Director Linda Bosidis.  We work with some of the most iconic Australian, New Zealand and international songwriters, catalogues and their teams to help to build rewarding, sustainable careers.  We are true champions of emerging artists and pride ourselves on nurturing talent.  Whether new or established, cult or chart-topping, our songwriters are at the heart of everything we do.

Our historic catalogue extends from the late 60s and we are very proud to consistently sign a new wave of talent.  Mushroom Music represents many major international catalogues and we also have direct agreements with international artists who understand the importance of having ‘boots on the ground’ in our territory.

We are known for the creative support we offer our writers through our tailored approach, depth of knowledge and extensive network of contacts around the globe. From organising co-writing sessions to managing international writing trips and curating camps and retreats, we connect our diverse roster of writers and producers to create inspired world class songs. We help our artists tell their own stories and advise how to successfully blend their business with their craft.

We sync music with a fresh and innovative approach and create genuine revenue streams for our writers.  Our relationships with music supervisors, advertising agencies and TV & film production companies have been nurtured over many years.  We are trusted to always pitch the right music for the right opportunity.

Our team are lateral thinkers who generate real opportunities and listen to the individual needs of our writers.  We understand the importance of protecting and representing copyrights.  We have a forward-thinking administration team and pride ourselves on attention to detail. Anyone who has worked with us will vouch for our transparency and reliability.

We are the most experienced and creative team in the game in Australia and New Zealand, and you won’t find a group of people that love music more.
