New Edition and SWV, flavored with a synthesized something that revamps the ’90s pop spirit that
he embodies.” -OffBeat Magazine

forges ahead with a newborn daughter and manager-creative director wife, LeTrainiump hopes Purity
serves as an entrypoint into a larger conversation about the breadth of contributions made by Black

DMG CLEARANCES, INC
In early 2010, Deborah Evans and Deborah Mannis-Gardner met face-to-face after years of working together via email and telephone.
They connected instantly. Both Deborahs have a similar vision, work ethic, knowledge and experience, and together
they knew that a publishing and clearance partnership would not only serve their individual music companies well, but would also be a first rate resource for songwriters who needed solid, hands on, proactive administration, promotion, and clearances.
DMG and Della Music Publishing jointly administer the catalogues of Reggie Noble, Erick Sermon and numerous other writers. Additionally, Della Music often assists with music clearance projects which are the focus of DMG Clearances Inc.
Together they reach out almost daily to new songwriters, as well as, seasoned composers who are looking for a
smaller independent publisher whose primary focus is on the songwriter – not on the income that the songwriter brings in.
The songwriter is our #1 priority and every songwriter receives our full attention, no matter what the issue.
Please visit www.dmgclearances.com for more information and for DMG fees.
