Rapper, actor and comedian Doc Brown, real name Ben Bailey Smith, has signed a new publishing deal with that there Sentric Music.

“After ten years in business, Sentric is now at a point where it can offer real creative A&R to the right kind of act”, says Sentric CEO Chris Meehan. “We’ve done a handful of exclusive agreements with carefully selected artists, and Doc Brown is a really exciting addition to that roster. He’s already made a name for himself with his unique blend of music and comedy, and we look forward to helping nurture his musical career”.

Smith himself adds: “Sentric are such a young, forward-thinking outfit and the whole team is down to earth and properly about the music. For me, that is a perfect fit. No doubt I’m a joker, but I’m serious about my music and so are Sentric. I’m the type of guy who is also looking to push the envelope and I had the feeling from day one these were the right guys to come on this journey with me. I’m fully gassed!”

That must be uncomfortable. Covering all of his previous songwriting work, the deal comes as Smith prepares to fully return to his musical career after almost a decade. His new album, ‘Stemma’, features collaborations with Mikill Pane, Example, Matt Wills, Andy Burrows, Luc Skyz and Poisonous Poets, among others.
