Music Week: The Movement

Music Week caught up with The Movement’s founders Sarah Liversedge and Jake Gosling —

“Sarah Liversedge and Jake Gosling, founders of boutique publisher The Movement have highlighted the lack of proactivity in the market from numerous publishing companies in an interview with Music Week.
The Movement is a boutique publisher unconcerned with the accumulation of catalogue. The result of a collaboration between Liversedge, owner/MD of BDi music and creative director A&R for Bucks Music Group, and in-demand producer/writer Gosling, it exists purely to discover and develop songwriters and is all about creating hit makers rather than acquiring hits.
One of its major USPs is the work ethic of both Liversedge and Gosling and their commitment to uncovering new talent – an asset the pair feels is not always evident in other publishing businesses.”

The Guardian - The Libertines Review

'The third Libertines album arrives 12 years after its predessor. Like many resolutely British products, including Dr Martens boots, its production was actually outsourced to Thailand: on one track, you can hear the sound of the waves breaking on the beach at Bang Saray. Moreover, it was recorded with Jake Gosling, whose charge sheet includes producing One Direction’s What Makes You Beautiful, co-writing Ed Sheeran’s multi-platinum album + and, indeed, working on the second album by that legendary purveryor of ramshackle art-punk with lyrics fixated on a mythic vision of England, Chris Moyles...'

NME The Libertines feature [Jake Gosling]

NME Magazine caught up with Pete Doherty and Carl Barat for the full exclusive story on their long-awaited third album. The band has been in Thailand recently recording the record with The Movement’s Jake Gosling:
‘In Thailand, they have a saying about deeply imporbable events. The say chaat naa dton-baai, meaning it will happen ‘one afternoon, in your next reincarnation’. In England, we’d say ‘when hell freezes over’ or ‘when The Libertines record a new album’.
Yet, somehow that most improbable of days has arrived. At the end of 2014, for the first time in over a decade, Pete Doherty and Carl Barat sat down nose to nose and wrote new songs together. Then they recorded them with bassist John Hassall and drummer Gary Powell over a five-week period at Thailand’s Karma Sound Studios. From that studio built on an old snake pit, where recording sessions were punctuated by visits to the notorious vice den of Pattaya„ their third, as-yet-untitled album has finally emerged. It’s the moment anyone who ever dreamed of Albion has been waiting 10 years for — The Libertines included…‘

M Magazine - Jake Gosling with Ed Sheeran

I’d first been introduced to Ed by my publsher Sarah Liversedge from BDi Music. She’s really proactive and always send me loads of artists to look at. She showed me Ed’s Myspace page and played me some demos. I really liked what I saw in him so I made him a priority to work with. Sarah fixed up our first session in early 2009 and we wrote The City, which made it onto the debut album.

Once we got started, the album came together pretty quickly. When you really gel with someone, things usually go fast. I remember it was a really good time and there didnt feel like there was much pressure on us. We were just left to get on with what we wanted. Atlantic Records’ A&Rs Ed Howard and Ben Cook were great at understanding what was importnat and knew that the album had to be organic, which really helped the process...
