Diztortion said: “I am super-hyped about joining the Stellar Songs and Sony/ATV family. I’ve been a massive admirer of the incredible roster they have and the way exciting new talent is nurtured and given opportunities with established writers. This is an important next phase of my career and to have the backing of legends like Danny D and Tim Blacksmith alongside the brilliant Sony/ATV team of Alastair Kinross, David Ventura and Guy Moot is really a huge blessing.”
