Sid Batham has signed a publishing deal with Touch Tones and a record deal with AEI Media.
The 22-year-old songwriter and multi-instrumentalist will see his debut single All Lies released in October via his own imprint within AEI Media - Bite Records.
Batham's signature vocal riffs have been sampled by fast-rising producer Cyril Hahn, who uses them on one of his forthcoming original tracks Raw Cut to be released on PMR Records (label home of Disclosure and Jessie Ware) this October.
Batham's co-produced debut EP Reputation was released online earlier this year and is a pre-cursor to his debut album that is reportedly already complete.
On the live side, after playing just three gigs he was booked for his first festival appearances this summer, including The Great Escape, Wireless and the main stage at Lovebox.
Batham is managed by AR Artist Management and his live is represented by William Morris Endeavour Entertainment.
Touch Tones Music is the publishing arm of Tummy Touch Music Group that incorporates record labels, a music publishing company, production music company and an artist and catalogue management division.
