Super-producer Paul Epworth, whose recent work includes Adele’s all-conquering 21 and Florence + The Machine’s Ceremonials, has announced more signings to his new label venture, Wolf Tone.
We’ve know for some time that Jeremy ‘Zodiac’ Rose had been signed to Epworth’s imprint: the Toronto-based producer produced early versions of three tracks on The Weeknd’s breakthrough mixtape House of Balloons, only to receive no credit (the issue has since been resolved, presumably with a healthy stack of money), and more recently released a self-titled solo EP on Jacques Greene and Joe Coghill’s Vase label.
An email sent out today explains that Wolf Tone have also signed songwriter Dominic Betmead of The Nextmen, and Mattie Safer, ex-bassist and songwriter of dance-pop team The Rapture. The wording of the press release implies that Betmead will be joining Epworth’s roster solely as a songwriter for other artists, while Safer will be joining as both songwriter and solo artist. Epworth, it’s worth remembering, co-produced The Rapture’s second album Pieces of the People We Love.
