"To me, Jens-Markus Wegener is the most innovating music publisher in Germany. AMV Talpa has a world class network of proactive international publishing partners, where our authors are the highest priority. With AMV Talpa's support we will further expand our international songwriting partnerships and invest even more in building the careers of young authors and producers.
