After years of working at various publishing and record companies, Jan Seedman formed Cadium Music Publishing. With a background in talent acquisition, Seedman brought Stone Temple Pilots and Filter to EMI Music when they were both unsigned to record labels. He also worked with Folk Implosion and Elliott Smith, among others, at the BMG-affiliated M3 and as independent A&R, got Nickelback their record deal (Roadrunner). Seedman took the best of what the majors had to offer and applied it to Cadium, while keeping the focus on top-flight talent, regardless of the background and pedigree of the writer.
