He also worked on Jack Savoretti’s 2015 album ‘Written In Scars’, Beverly Knight’s 2016 album ‘Soulsville’ and Dido’s 1999 debut album, ‘No Angel’, as well as tracks by artists including James Morrison, Lana Del Rey, James Morrison, Lana Del Rey and Jamie N Commons.

“I’m incredibly happy to be joining Cooking Vinyl Publishing”, says Benbrook. “CV is a fantastic independent with a great history and team of people who work extremely hard for the music they believe in. I’m looking forward to being part of that and I’m looking forward to a successful partnership with what is going to be a rapidly growing publisher that has a great reach all over the world. It feels like home already and I’m excited about what the future holds with them”.

Cooking Vinyl Publishing MD Ryan Farley adds: “I’m delighted to make Matty my first signing here at Cooking Vinyl Publishing. He is a wonderful songwriter and a true professional, with an amazing pedigree for classic songwriting and a catalogue that speaks for itself. His ability to develop strong relationships with artists from development level to household names is testament to his talent and likeability”.

Benbrook is the first non-performing songwriter to sign to Cooking Vinyl Publishing, which, we’re told, highlights a new direction for the fifteen year old company.
