Oh Wonder

Indie publisher Imagem has signed one of those worldwide multi-year agreements with London duo Oh Wonder – aka Anthony West and Josephine Vander Gucht – ahead of the September release, via Universal’s Caroline International label services unit, of an album featuring tracks they have been unveiling online every month since September last year.

Confirming the publishing deal, Imagem Music UK MD Kim Frankiewicz told reporters: “Anthony and Josephine are a one of kind artist proposition. They have a real aura around them, and really embrace innovation. As writers they have a rare knack to create something really different but with the confidence of seasoned songwriters”.

Matt Johnson at Redlight Management, which manages West, said: “We’re over the moon to work with Kim and the Imagem team going forward, and look forward to building a strong career for Anthony for the foreseeable future”; while Steve Ambler of Vander Gucht’s reps SB Management added: “The passion and dedication of Kim and her team filled us with confidence that they are the perfect home for Josephine”.

So, “filled with confidence” and “over the moon”, it’s a great little alliance this one and, most importantly, not one person is “thrilled”. Oh hang on, Ambler adds “we are thrilled to be working with Imagem”. So close.
