Becky Hill has done a new worldwide publishing deal around her songs with Sony/ATV, bringing her back in partnership with a major, after taking the recordings side of her music independent last year following an alliance with Warner’s Parlophone label.

Guy Moot, in his dual UK and global roles at Sony/ATV, says: “We have admired Becky’s talent for some time as an artist and writer. We are THRILLED we could make a deal and finally join Becky on this journey with her and her manager Alex”.

Sony/ATV UK’s Head Of A&R David Ventura adds: “I have always been in love with Becky’s music – she is a true songwriter and her voice is unique and exceptional. We have been trying to work with her for a long time and I can say that we are all THRILLED here at Sony/ATV to be part of her adventure. Her new music is fantastic with an international appeal”.

Becky Hill’s manager Alex Martin adds: “Becky has an incredibly exciting career ahead of her – we have only seen a fraction of what she has to offer. David and the whole team at Sony/ATV showed incredible passion and desire to work with Becky and we are excited to work with Guy, David and the whole Sony/ATV team in taking Becky to the next stage of her career”.

But what does Hill herself think? Well, she says: “I’m so happy to be a part of the Sony/ATV team. Their enthusiasm and confidence in me over the years could not be matched by anyone else. I’m glad to have a strong group of people behind me with a strong belief that I can progress and improve in the job I adore”.

So, the team are 50% THRILLED, 25% excited and 25% so happy. Good balance, but could probably do with a delighted. You can expect new material from Hill later this year, plus some of those tour dates people are always talking about these days.
