Doug Bussone

Manager, Licensing & Business Affairs,
Silva Screen Music America
New York, 10018, USA
Doug has been working in the music industry since 2003, starting in the Business Affairs departments of eMusic, The Orchard and Dimensional Music Publishing while still in law school in New York City. Upon graduation in 2005, he continued on with Dimensional Music Publishing and it's successor S1 Songs, handling all Licensing and Business Affairs duties for its vast publishing catalogs which included music by John Denver, The Byrds, Leon Russell, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmy Eat World, Evanescence, Creed, and Drowning Pool, just to name a few. In 2010, upon the acquisition of S1 Songs by BMG/Chrysalis, Doug joined London-based Silva Screen Records / So Recordings as their North American rep based in NYC. As part of the Silva Screen family, Doug has represented Silva Screen's massive collection of film & TV music and world music catalogs, So Recordings' awesome rock catalog (including The Apache Relay, The Chevin, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Fenech-Soler, and Broken Hands), Southern Crossroads Music's amazing Americana & country catalog (including Don Gallardo, Jabe Beyer, Annie Bosko, and The Allen Thompson Band), and Pangea International Music Publishing's fantastic rock catalog (including All Mankind, Forest Blakk, The Faults, and Villainettes). Doug also represents the Kscope & Peaceville Records catalogs for synch in North America, which include many notable post-progressive and avant-garde post-metal artists such as Steven Wilson, Gazpacho, Se Delan, Anathema and Katatonia. After 12 years in NYC, Doug recently relocated to New Orleans where he still represents these amazing catalogs, as well as providing other independent licensing and music consulting services. While officially now based in New Orleans, Doug continues to spend much of his time in NYC, Los Angeles, Chicago and Toronto, and maintains a wide and ever-growing network of contacts within the music, film & TV production and advertising industries.
