Ekko Music Rights European president and co-founder Pelle Lidell said: “I’m immensely proud to welcome Karen Poole to EKKO - it’s a huge honor that she’s chosen us to be her music publisher. I’ve been a fan and friend for years and she has always impressed me with how effortlessly she reinvents herself as songwriter. Musical trends come and go but Karen remains, always sounding fresh. On top of that she’s one of the hardest working writers I know. Needless to say, I am so looking forward to be working with her and her brilliant manager Anna Carpenter.”
