Native Tongue and Mana Music – Chris Gough | Melbourne and Auckland
Native Tongue is an independent music publisher, with offices in Australia and New Zealand. Besides acquiring rights to local writers, we also administer the works of overseas writers and catalogues for Australia and New Zealand. Established in 2003, Native Tongue has built a respected catalogue of local writers. We set out to provide writers with a publishing company dedicated to assisting with the development of their skills as songwriters and composers throughout their careers. Although we are a small company, we see this is one of our major advantages. It enables us to be far more proactive than our competitors and react quickly to the needs of our clients, whether they be film and television companies, commercial advertisers or the bands of which our writers are members. We see our role as getting out there and getting things done, working with the band, the management, the record label and the distributor to make things happen.
