Rush’s music publishing company purchased by ole

ole has purchased Core Music, the 40-year home of Rush's music publishing, and will manage the music publishing affairs of the band for the foreseeable future.

"ole is very honored to have been chosen by Rush to manage their incredible living legacy and to be a partner in their ongoing creative journey in music publishing,” says ole Chairman and CEO Robert Ott. “ole looks forward to working hard to ensure that Rush's music continues to find new and wider audiences."

"We are pleased with the news of Core Music's deal with ole,” says Rush bassist Geddy Lee, “and happy that our publishing will be handled by a Canadian company with worldwide expertise."

"With the changing times in the music business, the responsibilities of a publisher have become much more complex,” explains Rush manager Ray Danniels. “This deal will allow me to devote my time and energy to managing the live touring and recording aspects of Rush's ongoing career."

Rush recently released their 1974 self-titled debut album as an LP Box Set reissue to mark its 40th anniversary.

“Rush ReDISCovered” features the band’s debut re-mastered at Abbey Road studios by Sean McGee, who has been responsible for all recent Beatles vinyl re-masters.
