Saint Bodhi said: “Some things very important to me are creative growth, having a supportive team and knowing that my music is in the hands of good people who care about the art. I am super excited to be able to start working with Ian, Sam and the talented team over at Sony/ATV. Looking forward to what this new chapter has in store.”
