Los Angeles, CA (January 26, 2012)—Independent music publishing company pigFACTORY Music has signed producer, artist and writer Bleu to an exclusive worldwide publishing administration deal.
The announcement was made today by Keatly Haldeman, CEO, pigFACTORY Music, whose roster includes recordings and songs by artists such as Def Leppard, Jordin Sparks, Fatboy Slim, and Iggy Pop. “We are truly excited to welcome such a talent into the pigFACTORY family.

A graduate of Berklee College of Music, Bleu is a songwriter-producer, singer and performer currently living in Los Angeles.

He has a catalog of 300 songs that he has co-written and produced that are available for sync from indie to major label artists.
