Round Hill Music Acquires Publishing Rights to Tesla

Apr 22

Round Hill Music (“RHM”) is pleased to announce their acquisition of 100% of the publishing for the band TESLA’s entire song catalog.

“Tesla is simply one of the most iconic bands from the hard rock era of the late eighties and early nineties,” states Josh Gruss, founder and CEO of Round Hill Music. “Although their hits are now over two decades old, their raw and powerful sound still endures today. Round Hill Music is thrilled to take over the rights to these amazing songs.”

TESLA is a multi-platinum-selling hard rock band founded in 1982 by vocalist Jeff Keith, bassist Brian Wheat, and guitarist Frank Hannon in Sacramento, California. The band toured extensively with Def Leppard and Poison and was one of the most popular hard rock bands of the 1980s, selling 14 million albums in the U.S alone.

The catalog that RHM has acquired includes songs from TESLA’s platinum selling albums, representing most of the band’s iconic work and including the classic ’80s power ballad “Love Song” and other hits, such as “Comin’ Atcha Live”, “Modern Day Cowboy”, and “The Way it Is.” These copyrights helped define the 1980s hard rock era.
