Laurent Hubert, President, Creative & Marketing at BMG Chrysalis North America added: "Dan has the rare ability to touch music fans worldwide with his powerful, timeless songs. We are ecstatic about continuing the journey with Dan as he joins the BMG/Big Deal family."

Under the Big Deal Music / BMG publishing joint venture, the two companies sign talent jointly and BMG provides global state-of-the-art administration and pro-active exploitation services to the Big Deal Music catalog in North America, Germany, UK, Scandinavia, France, Benelux, Spain & Italy.
