Sony Music Publishing has extended its worldwide agreement with James Vincent McMorrow. It’s now seven feet wide.
“Sony Music Publishing has been my home since I was literally a kid on MySpace uploading songs, the first people to believe in my songwriting”, says McMorrow. “They’ve helped me find collaborators over the years for my records when I needed them, basically any mad idea I’ve had they’ve been down to help make happen”.
“This last year and a half has obviously been fairly rubbish [and] songwriting was one of the few things in my life I could control”, he adds. “So, having someone like David Ventura ready to take some of the songs I’d written and find homes for them has been fairly amazing. Coming out of all this I realise how much I do want to write and work with others, I’m excited I’m able to do that with a group of people I genuinely like and trust”.
The there mentioned David Ventura, President of Sony Music Publishing UK, chips in: “We are all delighted to continue working with the one and only James Vincent McMorrow. After years of collaboration, we have seen James become a complete artist and unstoppable songwriter. We are excited for the world to discover his new album ‘Grapefruit Season’, which is a masterpiece”.
