Warner Chappell has signed a new worldwide publishing deal with Ashley Walters – aka Asher D of So Solid Crew. The agreement covers his back catalogue as well as future works.

“I’ve been working on a lot of new music recently and have some really exciting projects lined up”, says Walters. “Now is a great time to partner with Warner Chappell as I look to collaborate with the best writers and producers around”.

Amber Davis, Warner Chappell UK’s Head Of A&R, adds: “Ashley is a pioneer of the UK music scene. He inspired and influenced a whole generation of artists and writers, some of whom are on our roster, so it’s a huge honour to be able to look after these iconic songs”.

“I’m also really looking forward to working with Ashley on his new music”, she goes on. “He’s got some amazing ideas and I can’t wait to see them develop”.

Walters released his last album, ‘Ashley Walters’, in 2009. In recent years, he has become better known as an actor, particularly as the star of the TV series ‘Top Boy’, alongside fellow rapper Kano.
