Murdo Mitchell said: “I’m over the moon to be signing to Bucks Music for publishing. Rhiannon is dynamite. I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into the music making. Cheers to the team for believing in me.”
Pick & Mix Management’s Scott Baker-Marflitt added:“Murdo is the most prolific songwriter I’ve encountered, so to match that, we wanted to find a proactive publisher who felt the same way we did about the songs. The pedigree and heritage of Bucks immediately sprang to mind and Rhiannon came highly recommended. They most assuredly share our belief in the project, and we’re over the moon to be working with Bucks and its incredible team.”
