Welcome to this brand new feature where we spotlight the new and exciting signings by one of our Industry members. We spoke to the A&R team at Beggars Music, the home of Sampha, Glass Animals, Nicolas Jaar and Mica Levi about their new signings to the publishing arm of Beggars Group.
The latest signing to Beggars Music is 18 year old Brooklyn-via-Baltimore singer-songwriter/guitar prodigy Lindsey Jordan aka Snail Mail. Snail Mail is set to release a full-length album on Matador Records later this year. Check out her ‘Habit EP’ below.
We’re very excited to start working with Oscar Powell! He has asserted himself as one of the most distinctive artists operating in electronic music today - his music is absolutely its own thing – mad, unpredictable, provocative but always carried by its own infection sense of groove. Powell released New Beta Vol.1 & 2 in 2017 with New Beta Vol.3 coming in 2018.
