Sony Music Publishing UK and Chosen Music Sign Caity Baser to Global Deal


Sony Music Publishing UK today announced its partnership with Chosen Music to sign breakthrough singer/songwriter Caity Baser to a worldwide publishing agreement.

20-year-old pop singer/songwriter Caity Baser has quickly risen to fame following the release of “Friendly Sex,” “X&Y” and her first UK Top 40 single “Pretty Boys” from her debut EP Thanks For Nothing, See You Never.  Her unique songcraft has earned her over 50 million streams, over 10K total tickets sold on her debut UK tour and critical acclaim from The Guardian, Rolling Stone UK, CLASH, The Independent, BBC Radio 1, BBC Introducing, Capital FM and more. She was recently named as one of NME’s 100 essential emerging artists of 2023, as well as one of Amazon Music’s 2023 ‘ones to watch.’

Caity said
, “I am so delighted to be a part of the Sony family! Also a huge thanks to Chosen who have worked with me since the very start of my songwriting journey - they set up my first session and I’m grateful for their continued guidance through the creative process. I'm really starting to feel like I’m finding my feet in the music industry and I’m so happy to have Chosen & Sony by my side to help me as I grow.”

President, Chosen Music Alistair Goldsmith said, “Caity is a once in a generation artist and songwriter. She captures the zeitgeist of now and connects uniquely with audiences through the art of honest songwriting. Caity has a clear vision for her music and I am delighted to partner with David, Tim, Felix, Lily and the rest of the Sony Music Publishing family around the world to help take her songs to as wide an audience as possible. 

Baser’s highly anticipated EP Thanks For Nothing, See You Never was released on February 17 via EMI Records/Chosen Music. Her latest single from the project, “Pretty Boys,” has moved quickly up the charts since its release, sprinting up the UK OCC to No. 26. The track was also added to the Radio 1 playlist and Capital FM, marking Caity’s first-ever Radio 1 and Capital additions.

Her upcoming sold-out tour will begin on April 7 with ten dates across the UK and Ireland, including a show at London’s O2 Forum Kentish Town – her biggest show to date. As part of a new initiative, Baser has set ticket prices at just £10/12 to reflect the challenges of the cost-of-living crisis.

David Ventura, President & Co-Managing Director, U.K., SVP International, Sony Music Publishing said, “Through her abundance of personality, charisma and drive, Caity is without a doubt an ambassador of her generation. Her songs create such an inspiring and unique bond with her audiences, whilst her originality shines through everything she writes and performs.”

Sony Music Publishing UK Co-Managing Director Tim Major said, “Caity brings immense and infectious positivity into every room she walks in, and it’s impossible not to feel her individualism and character through her music. She is a voice for her generation and is connecting in such a genuine and powerful way. We all feel very grateful to be working with her at SMP and to continue our wonderful creative relationship with the team at Chosen Music.”

Sony Music Publishing Senior Director, A&R Research and Analytics, UK and Intl., A&R Manager, UK Felix Canetty-Clarke said, “Caity has an unrivalled energy and passion that carries through to everything she does, from her songwriting to her live shows. What I admire most about Caity is her lyrics – her directness and wittiness make her songs so relatable. We are so delighted to work with her and to be a part of her creative journey.”
