Primary Wave Music has entered into an agreement with the estate of the legendary songwriter, P.F. Sloan, in which the publishing behemoth gains Sloan’s publishing and writer’s share for his many top 20 singles.

Primary Wave Music, a leading independent music publisher, has announced a collaboration with the estate of legendary songwriter P.F. Sloan. According to the terms of the agreement, the publishing behemoth will acquire Sloan’s publishing and writer’s share, as well as access to Primary Wave’s marketing team and publishing infrastructure, including digital strategy, licensing, sync prospects, film, and TV production.

Sloan has written, sung, and produced several top 20 successes for musicians in a variety of genres, including Barry McGuire, Herman’s Hermits, and The Mamas and the Papas.

Some of Sloan’s biggest hits are included in the deal, including the protest song “Eve of Destruction,” the critically acclaimed top ten hit “A Must to Avoid,” “You Baby,” which spent twelve weeks on Billboard’s Hot 100, and “Secret Agent Man,” recorded by Johnny Rivers and used as the theme song for the 1960s TV show Secret Agent. The song has been performed by Devo, Blues Traveler, and even Bruce Willis, and has appeared in films such as Austin Powers and Ace Ventura.

“Phil didn’t go to parties, he wrote songs,” the P.F. Sloan Estate’s Jeremy Rosen, Stephen Feinberg, and Jered Carman explained. “He was in every shop in town at the same time.” That’s Phil’s introduction to ‘California Dreamin’. Phil’s falsetto is heard on ‘Little Old Lady From Pasadena.’ His tunes, from ‘Eve of Destruction’ to ‘Secret Agent Man,’ will live on in perpetuity. Some consider him to be a genius. We do.”

“I think Jeremy, Stephen, and Jered put it best when they said P.F. was in every shop in town all at once,” Samantha Rhulen, Senior Vice President, Business & Legal Affairs, said. “Whether they know it or not, everyone has heard a P.F. Sloan song.” His songs are timeless, and we’re thrilled to carry on his legacy and ensure that his tremendous library is known to future generations.”

P.F. Sloan was a legendary songwriter and performer, as well as one of the most elusive creative minds to emerge from the Los Angeles music scene in the 1960s. At the age of 14, he released his first single, “All I Want is Loving,” for the R&B label Aladdin.

He wrote and performed for many of the most prominent musical acts of the day, including Herman’s Hermits, The Turtles, The Mamas and the Papas, Johnny Rivers, The Grass Roots, and Barry McGuire. Sloan wrote and performed until his death in 2015.
