Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock have signed a new publishing deal with TwentySeven Music Publishing. The company is a three-way joint venture between veteran music exec Barry Weiss, songwriter Jenna Andrews and all your good mates over there at the corporate machine they call Sony/ATV.

“We’re an unlikely pairing of business and creative but the alchemy really works”, say Weiss and Andrews in beautiful harmony (possibly proving that the alchemy does indeed work). “We’re ready to kill it in the world of music publishing and are excited about Little Mix, our other new signings and the opportunity to partner with everyone at Sony/ATV”.

Also working in alchemic harmony, Thirlwall and Pinnock collectively belt out in a soulful fashion: “We’re so excited to be a part of the Sony/ATV and TwentySeven team! It feels amazing after eight years in the industry to be recognised as songwriters! We can’t wait to begin our journey with Jenna Andrews and Barry Weiss”.

Meanwhile, Co-President of Sony/ATV US Danny Strick burps out all this on his own: “We are very excited to have launched this new joint venture with TwentySeven Music Publishing. Barry’s long and distinguished record in the industry speaks for itself and he has a first-rate partner in Jenna whose talents as a Sony/ATV songwriter are coupled with her gifts for discovering and nurturing talent. The JV is off to a great start with Little Mix and embodies the high expectations we have for this partnership”.

Other artists signed to TwentySeven right this second are Anna Clendening, Rob Grimaldi and Queen Naija. The company also has an administration deal with Wide Open Music, repping its primarily country roster.
