So, it’s CHRISTMAS WEEK. Who’s excited? Who’s been Naughty or Nice? Christmas Shopping all done? No? You’re not the only ones, trust us…we didn’t even dust of the Xmas tree in the storage for the office ha! Bah Humbug. No, we joke!
So, 2016 is coming to a close, and it’s been a good one. Already looking good for 2017 too, but we don’t want to jinx it. Just wanted to take the time to give you guys some end of year updates. You know you love ’em 😉
Catherine McGrath (Warner) released her debut single “Hell Would Have To Freeze Over” on 25th November, which was co-written by our UK Platinum Writer Sara Eker alongside Nick Southwood (BMG). Catherine is a new Country-Pop artist hailing from Ireland, based in London, UK and has had great reaction so far! “Hell…” was featured on the ‘New Music Friday UK’ Spotify Playlist, and then subsequently added to many Country playlists, racking up over 50,000 streams in it’s first week alone. Nice one guys!

**WRITING CAMP – DECEMBER – UNITY GROUP FRANCE**
We had the pleasure to be involved in Unity Group France writing camp earlier in the month, which was held here in London at Miloco Studios. We met with Unity Group at ADE, Amsterdam in October, and we’re so pleased to be working with them on various bits and pieces and thank them so much for having Jack Shaw, Kirsten Anna & El Shay take part. Check them out here: http://www.unitygroup.fr/management/
The camp consisted of 6 of Unity’s producers – Klingande, Michael Calfan, Naxxos, Addal, Fabich, Ferdinand Weber & Clement BCX – alongside Karen Harding, Little Boots and more. Fair to say it was a great camp, and we look forward to hearing the material in the New Year
