Bucks Music in the UK and Mushroom Music in Australia have together signed Joshua Epithet to a publishing deal. The Manchester-based artist/producer is already working with Mushroom’s labels on his recordings, including his first single of 2023, ‘She Writes Fanfiction’.

Confirming the new deal around Epithet’s songs, Bucks’ Director Of A&R Sarah Liversedge Platz says: “We are ecstatic to be working with Joshua Epithet. Our Senior A&R, Flash Taylor, came to me with Joshua’s music with a glint in his eye, which only ever means one thing: he had fallen in love with a new artist. Joshua is outstanding and has a singular voice and talent. He writes and produces amazing, cutting edge, alternative leaning pop songs”.

On the partnership with Mushroom, she adds: “We are delighted to be working across Joshua’s songwriting under our first JV with our wonderful friends at Mushroom Music, Mushroom Labels and Liberator in Australia, which for us is the icing on the cake”.

Meanwhile Mushroom Music Managing Director Linda Bosidis says: “We are THRILLED to embark on our first JV with our partner and friends at Bucks signing dynamic songwriter/producer Joshua Epithet”.

And as for Epithet himself, he says: “I am so excited to be signing with Bucks and Mushroom Music. This is a journey I have been wanting to start for a while now and here we are, in the car, turning the keys. As a kid making music in between school and retail work, it means so much to me that I will be working with Bucks and Mushroom Music, whose legacies speak for themselves”.
