Sony/ATV has signed a worldwide publishing deal with UK artist and songwriter Becky Hill, Music Week can exclusively reveal.
Hill has worked with an array of top international talent, including the likes of Rudimental, Wilkinson, MNEK and Oliver Heldens. She is also a recording artist in her own right, with a solo album of new material due for release later this year.
Sony/ATV UK managing director and president, worldwide creative, Guy Moot, said: “We have admired Becky’s talent for some time as an artist and writer. We are thrilled we could make a deal and finally join Becky on this journey with her and her manager Alex.”
“I have always been in love with Becky’s music – she is a true songwriter and her voice is unique and exceptional,” said Sony/ATV head of A&R, UK David Ventura. “We have been trying to work with her for a long time and I can say that we are all thrilled here at Sony/ATV to be part of her adventure. Her new music is fantastic with an international appeal.”
Becky Hill’s manager Alex Martin of AM Music/Crown Talent Group added: “Becky has an incredibly exciting career ahead of her – we have only seen a fraction of what she has to offer. David and the whole team at Sony/ATV showed incredible passion and desire to work with Becky and we are excited to work with Guy, David and the whole Sony/ATV team in taking Becky to the next stage of her career.”
Hill said: “I’m so happy to be a part of the Sony/ATV team. Their enthusiasm and confidence in me over the years could not be matched by anyone else. I’m glad to have a strong group of people behind me with a strong belief that I can progress and improve in the job I adore.”
