One of the main independent music publishers in the Benelux/Europe has changed its name from CP Masters into CTM Publishing.
CTM Publishing is part of CTM Entertainment – the international multimedia entertainment company – which has announced that it has rebranded its successful global divisions at the beginning of this year. The other divisions: TV and Film production, as well as Artist, Music and Management will also operate under CTM. The rebranding follows the continued expansion of the business and will include new, visual identities. The recent changes to CTM’s corporate branding and identity do not affect music publishing company Imagem CV, which continues to operate under its current name and corporate identity.
Hereunder our new branding:
André de Raaff, CEO of CTM Entertainment said, “We were looking for more clarity and consistency of our brands within the company and I am convinced that the use of one strong brand across all of our divisions will help drive a quicker growth of CTM across all businesses and continue our success with new and existing clients, both nationally and internationally.”

CTM Music & Management:
Imagem Music UK today announces the signing of Circa Waves to a worldwide publishing agreement. Over the past year the Liverpool based four-piece band have been one of the most talked about breakthrough acts courting attention across the board, twice nailing BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record In The World with the singles ‘Get Away’ and ‘Stuck In My Teeth’.
The NME called them “Liverpool’s best new band” whilst awarding them track of the week for their debut single which they said confirmed, “that all the frothing excitement surrounding this band is justified”. The praise kept coming as The Line Best Fit observed that they “nail feel-good melodies and exultant choruses way better than any of their contemporaries”.
It is no surprise then that they were quickly snapped up for the upcoming NME Tour alongside Interpol, Royal Blood and fellow Imagem stable mate Temples.
Signed worldwide for records to Virgin EMI, Circa Waves have toured extensively over the past 6 months. Led by front man Kieran Shuddall, the band comprises Sam Rourke (bass), Joe Falconer (guitar), and Sian Plummer (drums).
Sam Mumford, A&R Manager at Imagem Music UK commented: “Circa Waves are one of those one in generation bands that emerge – I know I speak for the whole of Imagem when I say how excited we are to be working with them. Without a doubt they are one of the most exciting guitar bands to emerge from the UK in a long time and they are at the forefront of the new wave of bands coming through for 2014. As songwriters and storytellers, they have that rare intrinsic ability to combine melody and lyrics in a way that grabs you on first listen and stays with you”.
Stefano Anselmetti, Prolifica Management commented: “We are extremely excited at the prospect of working with Imagem. The determination shown by Kim (Frankiewicz), Sam and Jess (Hamilton) and all their team in securing the bands signature was incredible. They have a wonderful and very focused roster of artists and we are proud to be part of it. They will no doubt play a significant part in the bands career.”
Kieran Shuddall from Circa Waves said: “We had to meet a lot of people and it was always going to be a difficult decision who we should go with, though Sam Mumford’s great taste, great passion and incredibly beautiful hair won the day in the end”.
