Through the exclusive agreement, UMPG will co-publish all new songs Myrin writes outside of the specifically Christian music genre. The creative team at UMPG will work with him to broaden opportunities for him in pop music as an artist, songwriter and producer. Capitol CMG Publishing will administer his entire back catalog and co-publish his new songs for the Christian and worship market, and administer new songs written specifically for Hillsong Church recordings.
Jonas Myrin has written more than 100 songs recorded by artists in multiple genres including Christian, gospel, urban, pop and for film soundtracks. His latest hit 10,000 Reasons (performed by Matt Redman), went platinum and recently spent 15 consecutive weeks at No.1 on the Christian AC Chart. The song also earned two Grammys, five Doves and a Billboard Music Award for Top Christian Song. Myrin has additionally achieved international success as a solo artist with numerous hits including “Day of the Battle,” which went gold in Europe. Based in Los Angeles, he is actively songwriting and working on his American debut album as an artist.
