Investment firm Aser Ventures has acquired a stake in digital marketing agency Creed Media. “[We] are incredibly proud to become partners with Aser”, says Creed co-CEO Timothy Collins. “We see limitless possibilities now that we can benefit from the huge experience their great team holds in scaling and building a wide range of successful companies. Our belief is that together with their support we can grow Creed in so many new ways and that’s very exciting”.

Warner Chappell has signed a worldwide publishing deal with singer, songwriter and producer Henry Counsell. “Henry is an extremely talented songwriter and producer and there’s a real global excitement in the company about him joining us”, says Head Of International A&R Shani Gonzales. “This was a very competitive deal and we’re delighted that we’ve been able to bring him to Warner Chappell. Someone with his level of skill and versatility is quite rare”.



Sony Music has promoted Melissa Thomas to the role of EVP International Marketing, US Repertoire. “Music has no borders anymore”, she says. “Our audiences are global from the beginning and hits can break from anywhere. I love bringing our US artists to as many audiences as we can around the globe and I’m looking forward to the entire team continuing our unique marketing campaigns to shine a light on the creative talent coming from Sony Music”.

Also at Sony Music in the US, Monica Cornia has been named as SVP Sales, Commercial Music Group. She was previously co-head of the international marketing department for US repertoire. “I’m extremely proud and fortunate to work for a company that supports its employees exploring new areas of focus during their careers”, she says. “I look forward to stretching my expertise into our sales and catalogue businesses. I also can’t wait to develop new and innovative campaigns with our group, and help to further expand the fanbase of Sony Music’s amazing artists”.



Marshmello and the Jonas Brothers have released the video for their new single ‘Leave Before You Love Me’.

Bad Boy Chiller Crew have released new single ‘Footsteps On My Shoes’, featuring Jordan.

Daði Freyr has released new EP ‘Welcome’, featuring new single ‘Somebody Else Now’ and a Chromeo remix of his Eurovision entry ‘Ten Years’. “I wanted to give a taste of what I do before I dive into making a full-length debut LP”, he says. “I like making music that’s fun to make, so this is the result of that. Also – a Chromeo remix, how crazy is that?!”

K.Flay has released new single ‘TGIF’, featuring Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morrello.

Tamera has released new single ‘Wickedest’. It is, she says, “about embracing my sexual energy as a female. Finding strength in being able to love and be intimate with who you please and feeling liberated in doing so. It’s a flirtatious conversation with someone I like and lust. Almost teasing them because I know when it goes down I will not disappoint, but also making it clear that I demand the same time and work in return”.

Modest Mouse have released new single ‘Leave A Light On’.

Park Hye Jin has released new track ‘Y Don’t U’, featuring Clams Casino and Take A Daytrip.

Wesley Gonzalez and Rose Elinor Dougall have teamed up for new single ‘Greater Expectation’. Gonzalez explains: “I believe [the song] came from discussing the hypocrisy of flawed people on Instagram being public-facing self-help charlatans”, says Gonzalez. “We wanted to write something that expresses something positive whilst also managing to be somewhat sneering towards social media’s vacuous status-seeking which can feel like looking into the window of a yuppy showroom”.

Attawalpa has released new single ‘Yellow Fingers’. “I started writing this song in a late night druggy jam at a gross, now perished studio I used to work at in east London”, he says. “Fast forward some years later and I was clearer, way more sober, finally conscious and digging out these old demos. ‘Yellow Fingers’ was a fun one to write – or rewrite – because I had the clarity of time on my side. Patience is a virtue. Rather than write an anti-drug/anti-fun song, I wanted to show that although getting out of your head can feel so alive and sexy while it’s happening, eventually so can self-control”.

Capital X have released new single ‘Go!’



Larry The Pink Human have announced a new show at The Lexington in London on 22 Oct this year.
