Cooking Vinyl Publishing MD Ryan Farley said: “I’m delighted to welcome Jacob to CV Publishing. He is a fantastic and versatile talent who is capable of creating timeless, evergreen songs and huge pop records alike. His stature and reputation within the UK are already well established and he is making impressive in-roads in the US and Asian markets. I’ve enjoyed building a relationship with Jacob and Paddy, introducing them to our partners in the USA, Japan and Korea as they searched for the right partner, so I’m thrilled they have chosen Cooking Vinyl as their new home.
“Jacob’s career development will be a real focus for us in the years ahead and highlights our approach to building a core roster of non-performing song-writing talent to complement the exciting recent signings we’ve been making such as Avelino, July Jones, Blanco, The Orb, Marie Dahlstrom, The Waterboys and Raf Riley.”
Jacob Attwooll’s manager, Paddy Dalton of Frank Music, said: “I am incredibly pleased to get this deal over the line with Ryan and the fantastic team at Cooking Vinyl. They are a revered and ambitious company whose drive to secure big success is in perfect alignment with Jacob’s. We can't wait to get started."
Martin Goldschmidt, founder and CEO of Cooking Vinyl Group, added:“Jacob will really strengthen our growing roster of creative songwriters and it's an honour to work with him. Welcome to Cooking Vinyl!”
