President, Reach Music Publishing
Michael Closter is the founder and owner of Reach Music Publishing, Inc. and its affiliate Reach Global. Michael, a native New Yorker, started Reach in Manhattan almost 30 years ago as a small independent music publisher.
Today, headquartered in Burbank California, Michael has kept Reach true to its hands-on independent roots; focused and dedicated to representing a select group of top songwriters and music copyrights throughout the world for traditional rights administration as well as co-publishing deals with full creative services.
Reach administers and publishes songwriters and catalogs across all genres, including the catalogs of John Mayer, Common, Zac Brown, Ice-T, The Knack, Lisa Loeb, Sierra Hull, Public Enemy, Danzig and Lindsey Stirling.
Michael first established Reach while still in college, and began it full-time just a few years after graduation. Michael holds a Bachelor of Music from NYU, and an MBA from Duke University.
