Belgium-born independent music publisher Strictly Confidential has announced a number of renewed deals with its key artists and writers.
Balthazar (pictured), Soap&Skin and Nada Surf have all extended their long-term music publishing deals, while Sohnarr, the new project from former Balthazar violin player Patricia Vanneste, who recently released her debut album Coral Dusk on [PIAS], has also joined the Strictly Confidential roster.
Strictly Confidential, which recently announced the signings of Zwangere Guy, blackwave and Glints, also counts artists such as Editors, Oscar & The Wolf and Jonathan Jeremiah amongst its roster.
The company’s sync department has scored numerous recent successes including landing Balthazar the title song of the successful TV series La Trêve, while Soap&Skin’s music was used in the Netflix series Dark and a European commercial for Ford Mondeo.
In addition, Nada Surf’s cover of the Pixies’ Where Is My Mind was recently synced to the new Mugler campaign.
“Throughout the years Strictly Confidential have proven themselves the perfect music publishing partners.”

“Throughout the years Strictly Confidential have proven themselves the perfect music publishing partners for Anja to support her career both on an administrative and creative level and therefore we have decided to extend our relationship with them,” said Oliver Kamien, manager of Soap&Skin.
“I am extremely happy that these artists have renewed their relationship with us and look forward to working with them in the next phase of their careers. I also welcome back Patricia to our family.”
