Wild Belle @ Internet Week
I thought it was a little weird that Chicago band Wild Belle was playing a random NYC show, aka the Internet Week party that happened at "IWNY HQ" on Mercer St. Monday night with MNDR, but then I just read this:
EMI Music Publishing has signed a global songwriting deal with hotly tipped American duo Wild Belle.Here are some pictures from their new hometown show. More below...
The agreement, which is effective immediately, was sealed by EMI Music Publishing UK's Guy Moot, president UK and European A&R, and Dan Lloyd-Jones, VP A&R, with EMI Music Publishing North America's Jon Platt, president of North American Creative.
Originally from Chicago and now hailing from Brooklyn, New York, the sibling duo of Natalie Bergman and Elliot Bergman started gathering a fan base after posting their first track to their Bandcamp page, 'Keep You', earlier this year.
Roger Faxon, EMI Group CEO, said: "EMI is the perfect home for Wild Belle and I'm thrilled that Natalie and Elliot have chosen to join us.
