PRESCRIPTION SONGS

Pick a week—any week—on the Billboard Hot 100 charts over the past ten years and many of the biggest songs will involve at least one member of the Prescription Songs family. The company’s roster of more than 50 writers reads like a who’s who of the mostpopular singers, songwriters and producers in music, including Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Benny Blanco and Cirkut. Founded by Dr. Luke, the man Rolling Stone dubbed “the most reliable hitmaker in the music business today,” Prescription Songs gives its writers free range to collaborate with whomever they want, Prescription or otherwise, with Luke fostering a tightly-knit, familial community. Recently, Prescription inked JV deals with Diplo’s Mad Decent and Big Machine Publishing, the latter of which just signed Joe Don of Rascal Flatts. All writers benefit from the knowledge of Luke, who has had a hand in more than 30 No. 1 songs, won 70 ASCAP Awards, including Songwriter of the Year in 2010 & 2011 and Independent Publisher of the Year in 2013, and earned a spot on Billboard’s Top 10 Producers of the Decade. His production discography, which includes tracks by Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Ke$ha, Rihanna, Robin Thicke, Pitbull and Britney Spears among many others, led Village Voice to say, “His discography is pop writ large.” Prescription Songs is an environment where collaboration and individualism coexist peacefully; where young up-and-comers work with seasoned veterans and ego is eschewed for what’s best for the song; and where ceilings for success simply don’t exist.
