The Bucks Music Group has signed a sponsorship deal with Floor Sixx, a new artist development and music education company led by Sian Anderson and Jason Black.

Floor Sixx says that it “celebrates the best underground music across a range of genres by releasing exclusive singles” via its channels on various digital music platforms, while revenues from those releases help fund the Floor Sixx Music Academy, which seeks to mentor aspiring artists and future music industry talent.

Under the new sponsorship deal, Bucks Music will handle the admin and licensing of works published by the music publishing side of the Floor Sixx operation, as well as providing funding via which the new company can sign songwriting talent, the first deal from which is with London MC Capo Lee.

Anderson says she is “super excited” about the deal with Bucks, adding: “This is a huge move for us, Bucks really see our vision and we’re all really excited about having Capo Lee as our first project, he’s a brilliant artist”.

While Bucks A&R Harri Davies adds: “From the very beginning we have loved and shared Sian and Jason’s unique vision for the Floor Sixx brand. We are very happy to be working together with them as creatives and the next wave of talent they are bringing through the Floor Sixx platform”.
