Amadeus Publishing has signed guitarist and singer-songwriter Maya Delilah in a co-publishing deal with Bucks Music Group.
Amadeus Publishing was founded by artist manager Michael Dixon at Sodarock Music and songwriter Sacha Skarbek, whose co-writing credits include James Blunt’s You’re Beautiful and Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus.
Maya Delilah, a 20-year-old BRIT School graduate, is a guitarist and songwriter with more than 157,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, 273,000 followers and 4.8 million likes on TikTok, and over 47,000 followers on Instagram.
After the release of the 2020 EP Oh Boy and single Moonflower, Maya Delilah’s second EP, It’s Not Me, It’s You, is set for release this year.
Maya Delilah’s single, Need A Word With Cupid, is available now.
Last year, AI-driven A&R platform Instrumental picked Maya Delilah as one of its ‘Hot’ artists following her debut single Tangerine Dream.
“Maya is a truly unique and inspiring new artist.”
