Bucks Music is a UK-born but internationally successful independent music publisher. The company, founded over 40 years ago, has been responsible for developing and launching the careers of legends of the music industry including T-Rex, David Bowie, The Move, Black Sabbath and Procol Harum.

Today, the Music Week Sync Award-winning company has an active A&R department working with frontline talent such as Brian Eno, Honeyblood, Devlin, Blood Red Shoes, Mikill Pane, Pete Doherty and Findlay.

In addition, Bucks represents distinguished composers such as David Arnold, Rachel Portman, Michael Price and Richard G Mitchell – and fulfils a UK admin role for the likes of Bicycle Music / Concord.
