Since its creation in 1973, Mushroom Music Publishing has developed into the most successful independent publishing company in Australia and New Zealand. Mushroom Music is led by managing director Ian James. Ian has been a part of the Mushroom family for three decades, and is a leading industry specialist, holding key industry positions as Chairman of Australasian Mechanical Copyright Owners Society (AMCOS), Deputy Chairman of Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA), Board Member of the Australasian Music Publishers Association (AMPAL) and the International Confederation of Music Publishers (ICMP).

Mushroom Music acts as a complete support network for its writers and provides a wide range of services depending on the specific needs of the writers and bands. It aims to generate income from any source available creating a greater potential income for the writer.

The company has a depth of staff amongst the major components of music publishing, including A&R and creative, licensing, administration and international. Mushroom Music’s key staff members have a strong history with the Mushroom family or extensive industry experience. The stability and experience is reflected in the many long-term working relationships that the company has with local and international composers and catalogues that they are proud to represent, and with external long-term clients in the television, advertising and film industries who licence Mushroom’s music extensively.

Their collection of local and international songwriters are responsible for some of the industry’s modern day masterpieces from artists like Chet Faker, Gordi, Vance Joy, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, D.D Dumbo, The War on Drugs, Birds of Tokyo, The Preatures, Slum Sociable, DMA’s, Violent Soho, Jess Kent, Band of Horses, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, London Grammar – and that’s just the beginning.
