Montage Music Group President and CEO Allen Butler is excited to announce that longtime publishing vet Bobby Rymer has joined the company to head the newly-formed Montage Music Group Publishing, LLC.

"Bobby came very highly recommended to me by Anthony Martin, our Head of A&R.  After spending some time with Bobby I understand why Anthony is so excited about working with him.  I'm very happy to have him on board and I'm looking forward to building our publishing catalogue with hit songs!" says Butler.

Before joining Montage, Rymer most recently helmed his own publishing company, Rymer Music Group. Prior to that, he was VP/GM of the Nashville office of Almo/Irving/Rondor, where he was responsible for a staff of eight employees and 22 writers, including Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch, Annie Roboff, Craig Wiseman, and others. Before joining the publishing world, Rymer worked in A&R at Capitol Records/Nashville.

BMI's Thomas Cain, Montage Music's Bobby Rymer & Moonkiss Music's Brandi Warden Return As ASG Faculty To Lead Music Publishing Seminars & Song Pitch Sessions At This Weekend's 2009 ASG Songwriter Symposium

ASG Executive Director, Lee Duffy confirmed today that BMI's Thomas Cain, Montage Music's Bobby Rymer and Austin's very own Brandi Warden of Moonkiss Music will be returning as ASG faculty members for this coming weekend's 5th Annual ASG Songwriter Symposium. The weekend event will kick of Thursday evening with a pre-symspoium reception at The Mockingbird Cafe, located at the ASG offices in South Austin and continue Friday-Sunday at the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel in downtown Austin. The music publishing triumvirate of Cain, Rymer and Warden will be facilitating seminars and song pitch sessions, as well as attending showcases and song circles in search of their next hit record for the artists and project they steward throughout the year.

In his day job, Thomas Cain serves countless songwriters everywhere as BMI's Sr. Director of Writer Publisher Relations. As a performing songwriter-musician himself, Cain is uniquely experienced. He will lead a class in music publishing that will address both the craft and commerce aspects of the songwriter's life. He will be in town on Thursday and will be in attendance at Thursday night's Mockingbird Cafe pre-symposium reception, and throughout the entire weekend. He is returning for the second year in a row.

Montage Music's Bobby Rymer has over 25 years experience as a music industry executive. Before his tenure at Montage Music, he served as VP & GM for Rondor Music in Nashville, and earlier as an A&R executive for Capitol Records. Bobby proudly claims to be addicted to both golf and songwriters, but he professes a greater addiction for songwriters. At last year's Symposium, Bobby tirelessly served those in attendance throughout the weekend and is returning this year for his second tour as an ASG faculty member.

Rounding out the music publishing triumvirate is Austin's very own music publishing success story, Brandi Warden of Moonkiss Music. As Radney Foster recently stated at his ASG fundraiser concert in December, "Brandi is Austin's very best music publisher." Her recent track record has been stellar as she has placed cuts with some of today's top performers, including George Strait, Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift, among many others. Brandi, who is also the wife of Platinum songwriter and ASG supporter Monte Warden, is returning for her third year as an ASG instructor.

We welcome all three back and are privileged to have such an illustrious and successful music publishing faculty roster for this weekend's 2009 ASG Symposium.
