Cherry Lane Music Publishing Company Inc., whose roster includes
songwriters such as Quincy Jones, the Black Eyed Peas, and John Legend,
has signed a worldwide, long term, co-publishing agreement with
sensational rocker Dilana Robichaux, who is best known for her
participation on the hit CBS reality-show Rock Star: Supernova.
As the fan-favorite on the widely popular Rock Star: Supernova, Dilana was the show stopper during the broadcasts, as well as on the tour that followed. With her impressive songwriting abilities and powerful vocals, Dilana earned respect and praise from the show’s judges and viewers.
Dilana is currently working on material for an upcoming album, and is co-writing with MÃƒtley CrÃƒe’s Mick Mars, another Cherry Lane songwriter. Most recently, Dilana was the opening act for Aerosmith in Las Vegas. As her career flourishes with a thriving worldwide fan base, Dilana is set to make her mark in the music world.
Richard Stumpf, SVP of Creative Services & Marketing at Cherry Lane commented on the signing: "Anyone who has heard Dilana sing knows she is a rock star in the purest sense. She blew the doors off of the CBS Rock Star: Supernova competition and was the star of the subsequent tour. In our efforts to sign the best of the best, Dilana is right at home in the Cherry Lane family. We are currently working with Dilana on her album and can’t wait for her fans to listen to the amazing music she is creating."
Jimmy Stewart, Dilana’s manager at Sanctuary Artist Management remarked: “Cherry Lane has been an utter joy to work with. They are great people with an excellent understanding of today’s publishing world. The care and attention they’ve shown to Dilana has been quite astounding by traditional industry standards!”
Dilana commented on the signing: “I am ecstatic about being adopted by Cherry Lane! I believe their vision for my career and success in this tough business mirrors my own. They love me and believe in me – that’s always a perfect recipe for inspiration! My future looks bright with my new family!”
