RESERVOIR AND CTM PUBLISHING CO-SIGN #1 BILLBOARD WRITER-PRODUCER THOM BRIDGES
New York, September 24, 2019—Reservoir has teamed up with Benelux sub-publishing partner CTM Publishing to co-sign Thom Bridges to a worldwide publishing deal. The collaborative joint-venture will see Reservoir and CTM work together on all creative and administrative aspects of Bridges’ songwriting career, including the support of his upcoming artist project with Universal Music Germany, plus recently released single “Let’s Get Married” performed by Yellow Claw featuring fellow Reservoir rostermate Offset and Era Istrefi.
Based between Amsterdam and Los Angeles, the Dutch-born Bridges is a highly sought-after writer-producer best known for his collaborations with Dutch DJ-producer duo Yellow Claw. Bridges teamed up with the duo on their #1 Billboard Dance Album Blood For Mercy, plus follow-up albums Los Amsterdam, New Blood, and Danger Days, which included collaborations with DJ Snake, Elliphant, Tinie Tempah, Quavo, and Juicy J, among others. He also co-wrote Yellow Claw’s recent singles “Baila Conmigo” and “We Can Get High.” Bridges’ remix of Olivia Holt’s “Generous” earned him his second Billboard #1, when the dance-pop cut topped the US Dance Club Songs chart. To date, his works have been streamed over one billion times.
At only 25 years old, Bridges has already cultivated an impressive list of collaborators spanning multiple genres, including David Guetta, 30 Seconds To Mars, James Arthur, Jason Derulo, A$AP Ferg, Snoop Dog, Tiësto, Steve Aoki, T-Pain, Gucci Mane, Agnez Mo, Sofia Reyes, and Martin Jensen, to name a few.
