Warner Chappell Music and film, TV and music production company Unigram have signed a worldwide publishing deal with singer-songwriter Scott McFarnon.
McFarnon, who hails from south east London, has written hits for artists including Beyoncé, Mark Ronson and FKA Twigs. His work with Beyoncé on the soundtrack for the 2008 film Cadillac Records brought international recognition after the song Once In A Lifetime was nominated at the Grammys and the Golden Globes.
McFarnon, who also has an artist project under his own name, said: “I’m delighted to be signing with Warner Chappell Music. They have an incredible roster of songwriters and a great team of experts located all around the world. I’m looking forward to getting started as I begin the next stage of my career.”
