BRANDON CYRANO TATUM
A certified lawyer admitted to the California State Bar in 2008, Brandon “Cyrano” Tatum co-founded Audity Music. Based in Los Angeles, CA and Tokyo, Japan, Cyrano acts as Co-President/Global Head of Business and Legal Affairs for Audity Music. He focuses on catalogue acquisitions, business development, partnership development, deal negotiations and business governance for Audity Music worldwide with strongest focus in North America, Japan, the U.K., and emerging markets such as Brazil and China.
Cyrano entered the University of Southern California Gould School of Law in 2004 and earned a Juris Doctorate (J.D.) degree in 2008 driven by his desire to protect creators and to develop a strong understanding of the legal and business aspects of the music business. Being a music artist/songwriter himself who has performed in multiple territories, he feels a personal passion and connection with creators. This same desire and passion for music from early childhood led him to further his legal education by moving to London and earning a Masters (LL.M.) in Intellectual Property Law from the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2006-07. Before Audity Music, he was a former corporate law associate of the prestigious international law firm of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP in Los Angeles, CA and former in-house counsel at a Fortune 500 company in Long Beach, CA.
In 2013, Cyrano transitioned his career to Tokyo, Japan and began working closely with key players in the Japanese music industry following successes as an entertainment lawyer based in Los Angeles. While in Tokyo, Cyrano earned an international M.B.A. degree from GLOBIS University and simultaneously developed a powerful professional network throughout key markets in Asia. He has helped clients place music with consistent chart-topping artists in Japan, Korea, and China, and he has secured major publishing deals for clients in Japan. Surprisingly, he can actually speak Japanese at a lower-intermediate level and is a valuable resource in that market. Despite holding three post-grad degrees from three top academic institutions in three different countries, Cyrano is always seeking to learn and grow.
Cyrano has had experience working with iconic, world-renowned and developing music artists, producers and songwriters on business development in multiple territories. He attends major international music conferences around the globe, such as MIDEM (last attended in 2014), and extends consultation services not only to creators but also to corporate entities, such as music publishing companies seeking partners or business opportunities in foreign markets. Cyrano currently heads the Business and Legal Affairs department at Audity Music, participates in the acquisition and management of Audity’s amazing clientele, and even writes a song here and there in order to maintain his skills as a left and right-brained ninja lawyer!

We are keen to source and secure new opportunities for our publishing clients to build their experience and prestige as songwriters and ultimately increase their annual earnings while extending the longevity of their songwriting careers.
