British pop songwriter and producer Peter Rycroft (aka Lostboy) has signed a worldwide publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music.
Rycroft has worked with international and UK artists including Anne-Marie, Ella Eyre, Kehlani, Nina Nesbitt, Why Don’t We, alongside recent writing sessions with Birdy, Lewis Capaldi and Tom Grennan.
His other projects include the duo AboutAGirl, which he created with Tom Mann, plus remixes for Dua Lipa, and a forthcoming one with Dermot Kennedy.
Lostboy also produced the live version of Holler for the recent Spice Girls UK stadium tour, Spiceworld 2019, which took in 13 shows and sold almost 700,000 tickets.
He said: ‘This feels like a really exciting time for me. I’ve been working with some great producers, songwriters and artists, while also getting my own artist project off the ground.
‘Saul and the whole Warner Chappell team have been there every step of the way. The energy and passion they’ve shown already has blown me away and I can’t wait to work with them in this next phase of my career.’
Saul Fitton, international creative manager, A&R, Warner Chappell Music UK, added: ‘It’s fantastic that Lostboy’s joining the Warner Chappell roster.
