Warner Chappell Music and Twelve 6 Entertainment have signed a global publishing deal with singer-songwriter Emma Klein.
Klein appeared on season two of American Idol, and released her debut single “Call It What It Is” in 2019. The track received a prominent feature on The Bobby Bones Show and now has over two million streams on Spotify alone. That same year she had the opportunity to open for Bobby Bones on his tour throughout the U.S.
She has since become known for her viral TikTok hits, “Mood Swing” and “Still Gonna Love Ya,” which have led to her opening for artists such as Dermot Kennedy.
Of the signing, Katy Wolaver, Sr. VP of A&R at Warner Chappell Music, shares, “Emma has an incredible ability to craft a song with lyrics that are universally relatable with beautiful melodies. She also has a warmth in her voice that pulls you in as soon as you hear the first note and we couldn’t be more proud to be working with her and the Twelve 6 team at this point in her career.”
Travis Myatt, General Manager, Twelve 6 Entertainment, adds, “I’ve had the opportunity to watch Emma Klein grow as an artist and a songwriter over the past couple of years, but what has never changed is Emma’s ability to dig deep and offer a unique perspective through her songs on topics we can all relate to. I am beyond thrilled to partner with Katy and the Warner Chappell team to take Emma to the next level.”
Klein will release her next single, “Living Alone,” on Friday (April 21). She will play at The Analog in Nashville on April 20.
