Warner Chappell Music has inked a global publishing deal with songwriter/producer Toby Daintree.

Having worked with the likes of Devin Workman, FKA Twigs, Jesse Fink, Joy Crookes, Matilda Mann, Two Inch Punch and more, the multi-instrumentalist recently made a name for himself as Artemas’ main collaborator, co-writing and co-producing his #1 hit “i like the way you kiss me,” viral single “if you think I’m pretty” and his mixtape pretty.

Since its March release, “i like the way you kiss me” has amassing 400m+ streams and topped Spotify’s global chart for three weeks. The track hit #1 in Austria, Switzerland and Germany, #3 in Australia, Denmark and the U.K. plus more.

Through this new partnership, Daintree—managed by Virgo Management’s Fin Kemp—will work closely with WCM U.K.’s managing director, Shani Gonzales, and head of A&R, Amber Davis.

“Toby is a world-class songwriter and producer. His recent hits have showcased he can write songs that connect with a global audience, and we want to help replicate this success by partnering him with the world’s biggest artists and writers,” said WCM U.K. A&R Manager George Baker.

“I’m looking forward to working with George and the wider Warner Chappell team who have shown a passionate interest and understanding in the music I’ve been a part of and I'm excited to see what opportunities and new relationships come from the partnership,” added Daintree.
