SESAC Signs Funk Music Icon George Clinton

Music Rights Organization To Represent the P-Funk Innovator

NASHVILLE, TN (PRWEB) SEPTEMBER 18, 2015: The incomparable George Clinton, musical genius, primary architect of the P-Funk musical movement and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, has signed with SESAC for representation.

“There’s no disputing that George Clinton is one of the most unique musicians of the past four decades. His creative genius has informed multiple generations of music lovers and he has left an indelible mark on the international music scene. We are incredibly proud to welcome Mr. Clinton to our SESAC family,”’ said John Josephson, chairman and CEO, SESAC.

“Me and SESAC are a good match,” Clinton says. “I’ve never been satisfied doing the same ole thing over and over. You need to look for new ways to do things, make the most of a situation or a copyright, in this case. And that’s why I am excited to be a partner with SESAC. I like that they take charge of this business, making things happen for their songwriters and publishers.”

Clinton’s musical career has spanned five decades as songwriter, performer and producer. Known for his outlandish and colorful clothes, hair and oversized glasses, Clinton has worked alongside scores of artists, including Primal Scream, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube and Carlos Santana. He has produced records for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, among others, and has been cited by many rappers as a major influence.

Clinton, who has recorded 19 studio albums since the 1970s, has been called one of the most foremost innovators of funk music, along with James Brown and Sly Stone. His radio singles “Atomic Dog,” “Last Dance,” “Nubian Nut” and “Do Fries Go With That Shake” were among R&B’s top hits of the 1980s.

Adding to his creative resume, Clinton has appeared in a number of films, including “Graffiti Bridge, “House Party,” “PCU,” “Good Burger” and “The Breaks.” He appeared as himself in the Cartoon Network show “Space Ghost Coast to Coast.” Clinton’s voice, as well as his song “Loopzilla,” are featured in the “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas” video game.

Fresh off an international tour that took him through the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Japan and New Zealand, Clinton is currently touring in support of his newest album, “First Ya Gotta Shake the Gate.”
