Independent publisher Imagem Music UK has inked a new global publishing deal with London based producer and songwriter, Chris Loco.
Managed by OddChild Music, having originally come to attention in 2011 writing for a then undiscovered Emeli Sandé, Loco has hit mainstream success producing and writing tracks for Rita Ora, Professor Green, Ella Eyre and Tinie Tempah.
In 2014, Loco had a top 5 single with Lullaby with Professor Green ft Tori Kelly.
Alongside this, he has been developing and gaining cuts with genre defining artists such as Kwabs, Maverick Sabre, and most recently Raleigh Ritchie.
He has also continued to write with Emeli Sandé, and is believed to have penned tracks for her forthcoming album due later this year.
Chimene Mantori, A&R Manager and Kim Frankiewicz, Managing Director at Imagem Music jointly commented, “Chris has a genius way of bringing songs to life.
