London-based singer/songwriter and producer Rationale has signed a worldwide deal with Warner/Chappell Music (WCM).
Real name Tinashe Fazakerley, Rationale has a recording deal with Warner Bros. Records UK and releases his self-titled debut album on October 6.
He said: “I know a lot of writers and artists signed to Warner Chappell. If you ask any one of them, they'll tell you that their team is nothing short of brilliant. They work incredibly hard and there's a real family atmosphere that I love. So, when the opportunity arose to sign and work with Paul Smith again, it was a real no-brainer for me!”
Rationale has previously released an album and two EPs under the name Tinashé. He has written songs for artists such as Rag'N'Bone Man and Katy Perry.
Paul Smith, senior international creative manager, WCM UK, added: “Rationale is an incredible all-round artist. I’ve been lucky enough to have worked with him previously, so I know what an amazing talent he is. I’m really looking forward to seeing him develop as a songwriter here at Chappell.”
