Murlyn Music Group AB or just Murlyn Music (MMG) is Stockholm-based international music production company founded in 1997[1] by Anders Bagge. The company includes a great number of successful songwriters, producers and musicians and has produced and written material for tens of international artists.

The company has many studios in various locations (known as Murlyn Studios), a publishing division Murlyn Songs (initially headed by Pelle Lidell).

History[edit]

Murlyn Music was founded in 1997 by Anders Bagge. He had been inspired by Denniz PoP's Cheiron. Murlyn's big breakthrough came with the US boy band 98 Degrees.

In 2001 Murlyn signed a marketing deal with Universal Music Group for distributing the catalogue of songs materials produced by Murlyn Music worldwide. Colin Barlow, Jimmy Iovine and Lucian Grainge proposed building a company around Murlyn's songwriting where they would develop acts together.[2] Unfortunately this relationship with Interscope and Universal came at a time when the era's pop trend was fading and singer-songwriter acts were starting to dominate. Murlyn wanted to focus more on singer-songwriters, but the level of time and development required was something that the major label was reluctant to support.

In 2007 Bagge sold the publishing catalogue to Crosstown Songs in America.
