Joel Pirard is the creator and actual personality
behind Seven Sources , (the music) and is now the operator of 7 SOURCES COMPANY PUBLISHING, created with the idea of EXCLUSIVE
control over his Seven Sources, music.
Other music in the 7 SOURCES CO catalog
includes Joel Pirard's individual compositions with JDA.
JDA collaborative compositions are
soon to be co-published, by the three principal members, as Don Pitz and Arno Tietje are each forming their own self-publishing
entities as well.
"This bodes well for us all," Joel was
quoted as saying. "Each member retains total control over their share of the composition, and we have an agreement that allows
us to license individual compositions, and collectively. So it is a win-win situation".
Joel is also the keyboardist
and one of the principal songwriters and arrangers of AVALON USA. Music he has written for them either fully or in collaboration
is also part of the SEVEN SOURCES CO catalog.
AVALON USA's catalog is a mix of individual
compositions and collaborations.
"The details here will be a bit more complex",
Joel said. "There are five of us, and some have been 'out of the game' for some time, but there is an agreement as far as
INDIVIDUAL works are concerned".
