AMV TALPA is a worldwide music publishing company registered in Hamburg. Founded in 1990 they are driven by their burning passion for music and creative work. Their catalogue consists of international hits, but also trendy newcomers and a great variety of music.
The worldwide active music publishing company AMV Talpa GmbH was created in 2006 from the independent AMV Alster Musikverlag and Talpa Music B.V. - the Dutch music company of TV mogul John de Mol - in Hamburg. Since then AMV Talpa has developed into one of the most successful German music publishing companies. With a catalogue of more than 140.000 original and sub-published songs AMV Talpa can regularly be found in the Top 10 of the charts relevant music publishers.
The focus of our work is the targeted development and the intensive promotion of talented authors and successful artists. The versatile repertoire of AMV Talpa includes both current hit songs by Pitbull, David Guetta, Cascada, Madcon, and tracks by successful acts of the most diverse genres like AC/DC, Unheilig, Sunrise Avenue, VNV Nation, Drake, ATB or Udo Lindenberg, as well as promising national and international newcomers or bands in the indie/alternative genres.
Our 9-strong team sees the personal support and creative work as the core of all activities. Whether for „The Voice“ or „Pop Idol“, our national and international authors write perfect hits for bands and artists or compose music film and advertising. We organise songwriting camps (e.g. the annual Reeperbahn Festival Songwriter Camp) for producers and record labels worldwide and bring our authors together with successful artists at co-writing sessions.
Of course we also publish producers, labels and authors jointly in editions or co-operate as co-publisher or as sub-publisher for foreign catalogues in the GSA countries.
Through our global network we also guarantee a quick settlement of royalties and highly professional sub-publishing to all our authors and all our edition partners - for all types of music.
