We are delighted to announce that we have entered into a reciprocal sub-publishing deal with Velvetica Music for the UK & France! Check out the full announcement via Music Week and Music Business Worldwide

The move follows the retirement of Brigitte Bertholier, who ran two of Bucks’ companies in France, as Managing Director of David Platz Music SARL and NFC SARL. Bertholier joined the independent publisher in 1960s with founder David Platz.

Alongside the roster of artists’ catalogs that it administers, including Caravan Palace, Lomepal and JB Dunckel (from French band Air), the company administers the publishing repertoires of film production companies such as Pathé and Gaumont. It also administers the catalog of telco Orange.
