Paul McCartney's publishing company MPL Communications has signed singer-songwriter Glenn Aitken, who McCartney discovered while holidaying in the Maldives.
New Zealand born Aitken, who has been working in the Maldives as an entertainments manager since 1999, found himself performing at a private dinner for McCartney and his wife Heather.
Shortly after, Glenn was offered a publishing deal by MPL Communications. "Heather and I first met Glenn on holiday," says McCartney. "We liked his music instantly. Glenn is an extremely talented singer-songwriter".
Aitken's track The Way was featured on a Uncut's special Paul McCartney covermount CD in July.
