Range Media Partners has announced that Casey Robison will join the company as the head of its new music publishing division.
Robison was most recently executive VP of A&R at Hipgnosis Songs, where he led the company’s pop division, working with songwriters and artists including Monsters & Strangerz (Jordan and Stefan Johnson), John Ryan, Julian Bunetta, Normani, Teddy Geiger, Imad Royal, Dan Wilson and others. His earlier role as co-president and partner of Big Deal Music Group — where he built and oversaw the company’s pop division along with solidifying its joint ventures with Nice Life Music (Ricky Reed) and Big Family Music (Julian Bunetta & John Ryan) – helped lead to its 2020 acquisition by Hipgnosis.

Robison began his career in music as an intern at Capitol Records while attending USC. After graduating, he was hired as an A&R assistant at Chrysalis Publishing, where he worked with his future Big Deal Music partners Kenny MacPherson, Jamie Cerreta and Dave Ayers. He also served as senior director at BMI in Los Angeles and was a co-producer of the songwriting podcast “And the Writer Is…With Ross Golan.”
“Casey and the team believe there is a tremendous opportunity to launch a boutique publishing company inside of the Range ecosystem. The connectivity to our management roster, label, film/TV relationships and music supervisors provide a fertile ground for developing writers and producers,” says Range Music founding partner/Range Media Partners co-founder Matt Graham. “Casey will lead our publishing division that includes Sam Drake, Federico Morris, Jared Cotter and has already signed songwriter Geoff Warburton and has the support of the whole Range Media Partners team. His experience as a builder at Big Deal and Hipgnosis is essential to getting our strategy and culture honed to ensure maximum opportunity for our talent. We couldn’t be more excited about what we can create together.”
