Classically-trained composer and songwriter Matt Sheeran has signed an exclusive global publishing deal with BMG and BMG Production Music.
Matt, older brother to chart-topper Ed Sheeran, is a highly accomplished musician who has applied his talents to chart hits, film scores, and advertisements.
Matt co-wrote a new version of Ed Sheeran’s UK Number One ‘Perfect', resulting in the single becoming a version where Matt added a string orchestration alongside the vocals and lyrics of Italian legend Andrea Bocelli. The accompanying music video to their duet titled ‘Perfect Symphony’ has reached over 150 million views on YouTube.
Most recently, Bocelli and the Sheerans reunited for ‘Amo Soltano Te', a track found on Andrea Bocelli’s newest Number One album Si.
Matt said: “I saw three different publishing companies that were all really good, but BMG was really exceptional. It wasn’t a difficult decision. It definitely felt like the right place to go.”
Hugo Turquet, BMG SVP Publishing A&R, said: “We are extremely honoured that Matt Sheeran picked BMG as his publishing partner for his words and compositions. BMG is able to give him the environment where he can explore his creativity across production music and commercial music under one roof. There’s no doubt that he will find a great home here.”
Scott Doran, director of custom music, said: “Matt is an incredibly talented writer and composer. He is a perfect match for what BMG has to offer and we couldn’t be happier to support him.”view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessBMG Production Music, Wed, 28 Nov 2018 10:18:49 GMT
