LIVERPOOL (CelebrityAccess) – Circa Waves frontman and chief songwriter Kieran Shudall has signed an exclusive songwriting agreement with Sentric Music Group.
The deal includes this year’s Top 10 album What’s It Like Over There? as well as Circa Waves’ next LP.
To date, the band has sold more than 300,000 albums worldwide and boasts more than 1.4 million monthly listeners on Spotify.
Sentric’s Global Director of Music Services Simon Pursehouse said: “You could argue this was inevitable really, Kieran used to use our 28-day service back in 2009 and he even did work experience with me on the sync team back in 2012. Ever since then, we bonded over a mutual love of songwriting and I’m exceptionally chuffed to be working with a man who truly knows how to write an utterly massive chorus. And we all know that choruses are the best thing in the world. As well as upcoming Circa Waves material, which is arguably the best to date, we’re also looking to get him writing with the great and good of the industry to create some quite wonderful bangers.”
Shudall added: “I’m really happy to be working with Sentric. I’ve been friends with Simon and Chris [Meehan, Sentric CEO] for years, and look forward to all the exciting musical adventures we will go on. Liverpool is my home and my working hub, so to have Sentric just down the road only adds to how productive this partnership will be. I can’t wait to get started.”
Founded in 2006, Sentric Music Group has grown rapidly to become a global, award-winning independent publisher. Based in Liverpool, the company has offices in London, Hamburg, New York and Los Angeles, and currently represents more than a million works. Since 2018, Sentric has inked major deals with respected brands IQ Music, Black Rock Publishing and Riptide Music Group, in addition to launching its white-label publishing platform RightsApp.
