Bucks Music Group makes first signing in Scandinavia07 August 2019 - Press release
Bucks Music Group has signed Swedish artist Linn Koch-Emmery to an exclusive worldwide publishing agreement.
The deal is the first artist signing for Bucks Scandinavia, which was set up in 2017 and is run out of Stockholm by Daniel Sly-Platz.
Debuting in 2017, 26-year-old Koch-Emmery gained the attention of blogs and media worldwide and, with her Waves EP in 2018, made her way onto national and international radio, being tipped as an “Artist of the Future” by Swedish National Radio P3.
Since then, Koch-Emmery has completed her ﬁrst European tour as well as playing shows and festivals in the US, Mexico and the UK.
Koch-Emmery has a tireless work ethic – evidenced by the more than 40 shows she’s played in 2019 already. She will play the Honduras stage at Bananpiren Way Out West on Friday 9 August. Her full debut album is in the works.
Bucks Scandinavia Director Daniel Sly-Platz said: “Aside from being a great songwriter – able to effortlessly mix catchy ‘Scandinavian melodies’, sharp lyrics and a 90s-inspired indie guitar sound - Linn is a true career artist. We will work in a coordinated approach with the UK team to help develop her career outside of her local market. She is a frontrunner in the Swedish indie pop scene and her music translates well to the UK, so it’s a project that we’re all eager to get stuck into across territories.”
Pace Management’s Fredrik Andersson said: “We’re extremely excited about signing with Bucks. They have been champions of Linn’s from the start and the team have exactly the right mix of gravitas, flexibility and finesse we need to elevate Linn’s career.”
