AWAL has announced a new worldwide recording deal with singer-songwriter, Millie Turner, Music Week can exclusively reveal.
Turner will be offered AWAL’s full range of global services, including marketing, campaign coordination, A&R and distribution.
AWAL’s VP A&R, Matt Riley, said: “Millie was one of the first artists discovered by Zoe Warshaw in our A&R team when she joined AWAL in 2017. We fell in love with Millie's music, creativity and originality right away and began to develop her career through the AWAL platform. We are incredibly proud that Millie has chosen to take the next step in her career as an AWAL Recordings artist and we are extremely excited about her future."
