Welsh pop duo Dusky Grey have just signed a worldwide deal with independent publisher Bucks Music Group.
Teenage songwriting aces Gethin Williams and Catrin Hopkins are behind the duo, who also recently inked a record deal with Warner Music’s East West imprint.
With just two infectious single under their belts so far – Told Me and Call Me Over – they’ve already managed to rack up over seven million plays on Spotify.
They’ve also turned ears at BBC Introducing in Wales, London and Merseyside, and hit Ones to Watch lists both in the UK and US for their bare-bones pop and all-out melodies.
The pair said: ‘We are so thrilled to be joining Bucks. It’s been such a rollercoaster journey for us since sitting in a basement flat in Wales a year ago putting out a song.
‘Now here we are signing a publishing deal with a company who represent writers who have been involved with some of our favourite music. Dreams can come true.’
Sarah Liversedge, Bucks Music Group Director Creative A&R, said: ‘This deal feels so fresh and exciting. Our creative team are energized and ready to spearhead Gethin and Catrin’s creative journey into 2018. We are also super excited to be working with Keith and Bex at ROM Management and with Paul, Josh and the team at East West.’
Bucks Music Group is one of the UK’s leading and longest running independent music publishers.
Its catalogue includes works by David Bowie, the Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath, Run The Jewels, Brian Eno, James Blunt, Professor Green, Rudimental and Beyonce.
Its label publishing partners include Heavenly, Nude, Raggamuffin, Brownswood, Rekids, Arts & Crafts and No Hats No Hoods.
