Paul Smith, VP, A&R and international songwriters, Warner Chappell Music, added: “Cleo is an exceptional songwriter and one of the best topliners around. Now, with her new team around her, I think we will really start to see her full potential. We’ve already had interest from a number of top artists and producers in the UK and US wanting to work with her, so I can’t wait to get her going.” 

Evan Bogart, founder, Camelot Music Group, concluded: “I am beyond excited to be working alongside the legendary Warner Chappell in support of my good friend, the brilliantly talented Cleo! She has proven herself time and time again to be an incredible writer and I’m honored to be part of her family and to help achieve the extraordinary success that she’s destined for”.
