Nashville, TN: Orbison Enterprises is under new leadership following the late 2011 death of Barbara Orbison. Barbara and Roy Orbison's sons Alex and Roy Jr. have taken the helm and will be directing the family estate, catalog, and publishing companies. Roy Jr. will be responsible for managing the Roy Orbison estate and catalog. Most recently he and Barbara co-produced the box set Roy Orbison: The Soul of Rock and Roll. Alex will oversee the operation of the Still Working/Orbison Music publishing companies. The company includes songwriters such as Tommy Lee James, Terry McBride, Annie-Rose and Chase Yaklin. "Orbison Music is stronger than ever," said Alex. "We have represented an impressive team of songwriters and we'll continue to expand our roster. I'm looking forward to announcing more new signings in the near future." Wesley Orbison, Roy's son from his first marriage, is focusing on the release of his debut album and his involvement with Orbison Enterprises will be announced later. In a joint statement, Roy Jr. and Alex said, "Our mother was a respected member of the international music business community. She was passionate about keeping our father's legacy alive and she was passionate about her 'family' of songwriters. We look forward to continuing and further developing her vision in the years ahead."

Meanwhile former Orbison VP Tanja Crouch has left the company to become studio manager at Paragon Studios in Nashville, while publishing head Clay Myers has also left. Longtime UK representative Mandy Haynes is currently working her notice and tying up loose ends, and can be contacted on the numbers below.
