Warner/Chappell signs Moss Kena

By | Published on Tuesday 23 January 2018


Warner/Chappell has signed a worldwide publishing deal with rising singer-songwriter Moss Kena, who came to wider attention via a soulful cover of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘These Walls’. The publishing deal comes as she preps the release of a new EP – ‘Found You In 06’ – via Sony Music’s Ministry Of Sound label.

Confirming the deal, Warner/Chappell’s Katie Vinten said: “Moss Kena is an incredible talent who approaches songwriting with a fresh and forward-thinking style. The world has only experienced a small taste of the powerful music Moss has to offer, and we are so excited to help amplify what is already a rapidly growing career”.

“But why is the new EP called ‘Found You In 06’?” is the question you’re all surely not asking but which I’m going to answer anyway. 2006 is “basically the time in my life when I really had my musical awakening”, says Kena. That was partly via Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back To Black’ album, she adds. “I really felt I had found music I connected with [and] that started to shape my musical identity”. So now you know. You’re welcome.
