Big Machine Music, a subsidiary of HYBE America, has inked Grammy-nominated songwriter/producer Jon Hume to an exclusive co-publishing agreement.

Hailing from Australia, the now Nashville-based Hume has co-written and produced Dean Lewis’ “Be Alright,” “Half a Man” and the 2024 ASCAP Pop award-winning song single “How Do I Say Goodbye,” as well as penned for Sofi Tukker, Bebe Rexha, JP Cooper, NEEDTOBREATHE, Calum Scott and forthcoming songs with David Kushner and Bishop Briggs.

Hume’s also snagged syncs such as the theme song “Don’t Forget” for Welcome to Wrexham and The Croods, plus placements with Apple, BMW and Smartwater. Most recently, he served as a producer for ABC’s American Idol, including the latest Season 22 winner, Abi Carter.

“With over 8 billion streams worldwide as a songwriter, Jon is a global presence who can seamlessly cross genres and deliver syncs for some of the biggest programs and brands,” said BMM’s President, Mike Molinar. “We are honored and privileged to welcome him to the Big Machine Music family!”

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to join Big Machine Music,” added Hume. “Mike Molinar, Alex Heddle, Hannah Babitt and the team have unbridled energy and creativity and the roster they have assembled speaks for itself.”
