HarbourView Equity Partners has acquired what it refers to as “select” publishing assets of Kane Brown, the country music star whose catalog of three studio albums has so far generated 8.4 million album consumption units during his career. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Brown’s hit songs include such tunes as “What Ifs,” “Homesick,” “Used to Love You Sober,” “Like I Love Country Music” “Lose It” “One Thing Right,” and “Be Like That,.”

“Partnering with someone like Kane who adds such a beautiful texture to the country genre is consistent with who we are as a firm,” HarbourView CEO and founder Sherrese Clarke Soares said in a statement. “Kane is a special talent, and we are excited to be on the journey.”

HarbourView has acquired music assets from other country music artists including Florida Georgia Line, Brad Paisley and Lady A. Beyond country, more recently, HarbourView announced it acquired certain music assets of Christine McVie / Fleetwood Mac and Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo.

HarbourView describes itself as a global investment firm focused on investment opportunities in the entertainment and media space. Unlike most private equity-based firms that focus on iconic rock music, HarbourView has acquired music assets in diverse genres, eras and artists, with a stake in some 24,000 songs across master recording and publishing income stream, acquired in 45 music catalog deals. Beyond music, HarbourView also seeks opportunities across the entertainment, sports, and media sectors.

“I’m grateful to Sherrese and HarbourView for their belief in my songwriting catalog,” Brown said in a statement. “These songs that I’ve written are very meaningful to my fans and my career.”

Fox Rothschild LLP served as legal counsel to HarbourView in this transaction. Brown was represented by Jess L. Rosen at Greenberg Traurig LLP.
