Welcoming Childish Gambino and Wolf + Rothstein to the Kobalt Family
We're thrilled to welcome Grammy award-winning producer, singer, songwriter, rapper, and DJ, Donald Glover, a.k.a., Childish Gambino to the Kobalt family. The worldwide agreement includes publishing administration, including global synch and creative support services, for all of Childish Gambino’s future songs after the Awaken, My Love! album.
Additionally, we're so excited to announce we've also signed Wolf + Rothstein, Glover’s musical teams of collective songwriters and artists, for publishing administration, global synch, and creative support services.
“Donald is one of those rare multi-talented artists who can do it all," said Kobalt Music SVP, Creative, Al McLean. "It’s an honor to sign Donald and Wolf + Rothstein Collective to the Kobalt family.”
Emmy-, Golden Globe-, and Grammy-winning actor, writer, comedian, DJ, and rapper Donald Glover broke into pop culture mainstream first on the hit TV sitcom Community after serving on the writing staff of both The Daily Show and 30 Rock. In August 2011, he signed to Glassnote Records under his rap moniker Childish Gambino and has since released two albums. Glover also currently stars in the FX series Atlanta, which he also created and occasionally directs. Childish Gambino is set to perform on Saturday Night Live on May 5, 2018.
Operating out of Temple Studios in Los Angeles, Wolf + Rothstein is the creative agency comprised of Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Donald Glover, Wolf Taylor, and Fam Rothstein, all whom worked with the band that helped compose the critically acclaimed Awaken, My Love!
Released December 2, 2017, Awaken My Love! and the chart-topping hit single “Redbone” were nominated for five Grammy Awards: Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Traditional R&B Performance (winner), Best R&B Song, and Best Urban Contemporary Album.
“Wolf and Rothstein is excited to partner with Kobalt for publishing,” said Wolf Taylor of Wolf + Rothstein. “We’re looking forward to growing the roster together.”
