It was announced today that Word Music Publishing has signed a worldwide exclusive songwriting agreement with worship leader and Dove-nominated songwriter Jonathan Lee.
Formerly with Brentwood-Benson Music Publishing and Centricity Publishing, Jonathan Lee's songs have been recorded by some of Christian music's most well known artists including for King & Country, Newsboys, Phillips, Craig & Dean, and Selah. Lee is a co-writer of "When The Stars Burn Down," a Dove nominated Worship Song of the Year and also the Billboard top 10 single "Proof of Your Love," recorded by two-time Grammy Award winning artist, for King & Country.
"It's been crucial to our team to make sure we are building a strong group of worship leaders that see the local church as the major leagues when it comes to how we partner together," says Jonathan Mason, Director of Word Worship Music. "Jonathan's love for the local church can not be denied and we believe new songs of worship will continue to rise through his continued ministry."
As part of this new partnership, Lee will write songs to lead and release through his own recordings as well as for other artists as a staff songwriter for Word Music Publishing.
