Peermusic UK has signed brothers Adam Purnell and Lawrence Purnell of Americana duo Foreign Affairs to an exclusive global publishing deal.
“The entire team at Peermusic is excited to give Adam and Lawrence our full support. We are all fans of their music and we are thrilled to welcome them to the Peermusic family,” said Nigel Elderton, president, Europe & MD, Peermusic UK.
“Foreign Affairs are one of the most talented UK Americana/rock acts I have seen, and I see great potential for their upcoming work. It is a privilege to be part of this next phase in their career and we look forward to big things ahead,” said Dylan Myerscough-Harris, A&R manager, Peermusic UK.
“We’re so excited to be joining the Peermusic UK roster. Thank you to the team for sharing our vision and for their belief in Foreign Affairs and in us as songwriters—we can’t wait to start working together,” said Foreign Affairs.
The duo broke onto the British music scene in 2015 with the release of Sell My Soul, which received support from BBC Radio and landed them a spot performing at the Glastonbury Festival. In 2017, the duo continued to build momentum with a series of support tours for the likes of Margo Price, Aaron Watson, Frankie Ballard, Striking Matches and Morgan Evans. Since then, they have performed at Country2Country at The O2, Buckle & Boots Festival, Summertyne Festival and The Great Escape Festival.
Foreign Affairs will be performing during C2C’s London Country Music Week on October 25.
The publishing agreement encompasses EPs The Old Fire Station and The First, as well as future works.
