Azoff and One Direction

We’ve all been discussing recently why in reference to the TV Show “Sold Out”, ABC Family would mention Irving Azoff as “the man behind One Direction”. This is one reason why:

Global Music Rights

What is GMR?

Global Music Rights was founded in 2013 by Irving Azoff and represents music rights holders for the licensing of their public performances. Former Performing Rights Organization (PRO) executives Randy Grimmett and Sean O’Malley run operations and bring with them more than 30 years of collective experience in music publishing. Global Music Rights offers licensing, distribution and collection services for the exclusive rights granted to music creators and owners by copyright law.

To add a bit of context, One Direction have associated themselves on their previous albums with the likes BMI and ASCAP, but now there is this:

One Direction

Also, if you go look they are in good company along with, Snoop Dogg, Pharell, Taylor Swift, etc. 


“Even more special than his farewell to the club of his life was the happy news that Xavi told his teammates, technical staff and coaches last week in the locker room: his wife, Nuria Cunillera (m. 2013), is nine weeks pregnant and the two will become parents later this year. Although Nuria is only at the beginning of the gestation period, the two were overflowing with so much happiness that they wanted to share their news with the people Xavi sees on a daily basis.” [md]

Congratulations Xavi & Nuria!

You, with an airport terminal heart,
Me a lover of definites, a definite lover

You felt me with sounds, I touched you with words

Running from my truths, a weighed down butterfly, you pinned me up against the wall.

They never told me that you’re happier as a caterpillar.

Am I keeping myself in my chrysalis? Sometimes I want to leave it all, crystal shattering.

Soon I will metamorphosize, shed my summer skin, learn to fly, pretend you were nothing more than space between the sheets

—  I hate that I miss you

The ultimate SOUL BOWL 💘
