South African house and jazz band, Mi Casa have signed a global publishing deal with music publishing house Sony/ATV that will see the band members music on new and old reach a global market. Announced on May 17, the partnership with the music publishing house will see the band in a five year deal which will still allow them to make their own music.
Vocalist of Mi Casa, J-Something explained that their reason for picking Sony/ATV in particular was the relationship they had cultivated with Sony/ATV's Managing Director, Rowlin Naicker who showed great passion in the band's growth. "We had many people approach us but then you get this one guy who doesn't want to talk about anything but how excited he is. Like we're really going to make this a huge success, we're going to make this amazing, we're gonna celebrate!"
Naicker said that he looked forward to the venture as the band is not only consistent but an extremely passionate group of individuals. "From a publishing perspective we want each of these guys to write, obviously for Mi Casa and also explore writing with other guys."
