Dave has renewed his publishing deal with Warner Chappell. So that’s nice for everyone. He went over to LA to do the signing too, because his future plans are global. Or at least US-focussed. And isn’t that basically the same thing?
Warner Chappell UK’s Head Of A&R, Amber Davis says: “We are incredibly honoured that Dave and his exceptional managers, Ben [Scarrs] and Jack [Foster], have put their faith in us once again to continue this fruitful relationship!”.
Noting the current American skew, she went on: “The US is a market that Dave is close to conquering. He and his team have created a hugely significant project on both of sides of the pond and I firmly believe the innovative ideas from our international team will add value to it. We are excited to support and celebrate each and every step of Dave’s career and artistic progression”.
Managers Scarrs and Foster add: “Amber is an absolute pleasure to work with, a real force in the publishing game and someone who’s shown serious passion and belief in Dave from the very start. We look forward to building with the global Chappell team as Dave continues his journey as a songwriter, producer and an artist”.
Dave is currently booked to play Coachella and The Governors Ball this year, with more US shows to be announced in the near future. He also recently met with Warner Chappell co-Chairs Guy Moot and Carianne Marshall in LA to further discuss how the publisher can help with that cracking America thing. Busy, busy.
