Reservoir has signed neo-soul pop artist Rachel Chinouriri to a worldwide publishing deal.
Chinouriri joins synth-pop artist Shura, Scottish writer David Sneddon, singer-songwriter Lucy Rose and Mike Halls of Clean Cut Kid as signings and re-signings spearheaded by UK head of creative Charlie Pinder.
“I couldn’t be happier to have signed with Reservoir,” said Chinouriri, who dropped her debut EP, Mama’s Boy, earlier this year. “Charlie and the entire team have shown as much love and passion for my music as I do, which can only be a great thing. I'm certain that working closely with Reservoir will help me grow as an artist and a person and I’m so excited to find out what this next chapter brings.”
Sneddon recently re-upped his deal with the company and was one of the collaborators on Lewis Capaldi’s UK No.1 LP Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent. The album track Lost On You was co-written and co-produced by Sneddon, who also recently teamed up with Mika, co-writing six tracks on his new album, My Name Is Michael Holbrook.
“I was thrilled to recently extend my time with Reservoir and to work further with Charlie Pinder, in particular,” said Sneddon. “I’ve really felt proud to be a Reservoir writer during the last three years. One of the main things that drove me to remain part of the family was the genuine sense of excitement that seems to run right through the entire company. It’s no coincidence my Reservoir years have been amongst my most successful as a professional songwriter.”
We continue to build a more exciting, creative and diverse eco-system of talent
Rose has also renewed her agreement with Reservoir following the release of her fourth studio-album No Words Left, while Halls, co-founder and frontman of Liverpool-based Clean Cut Kid, has also signed with the company.
Pinder said: “With the additions of Rachel, Shura, and Mike, and the renewed relationships with David, Lucy, and Scottish alternative rock band Fatherson, we continue to build a more exciting, creative and diverse eco-system of talent at Reservoir. It is an absolute privilege to help shape the roster and celebrate each of their successes.”
