Welcoming Fraser T. Smith and 70HZ Publishing to the Kobalt Family
We’re so excited to welcome producer, songwriter, and musician Fraser T. Smith and his publishing company, 70HZ Publishing, to the Kobalt family! Our worldwide agreement with the co-writer and producer of six number-one singles includes publishing administration for all future works as well as some of his recent catalog.
With contributions to hits like Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain,” Stormzy’s recent UK number-one album “Gang Signs & Prayer,” and Taio Cruz’s UK and US number one “Break Your Heart,” Smith and his management team are looking forward to working closely with Kobalt’s international creative team to explore the best songwriting and networking opportunities around the world.
70HZ Publishing prides itself on a tight, boutique roster with profound services for its young roster; Smith himself serves as mentor and advisor in composition and production, providing assistance in strategy and development.
Kobalt SVP Creative Sam Winwood commented, “Fraser is, without doubt, one of the UK’s most successful and talented songwriters and producers. He is also a fantastic mentor and champion of young artists and musicians of all genres. We are very proud and excited to be working with such an exceptional talent.”
“I am excited to be part of such a tight knit, caring, proactive and dynamic publishing company,” Fraser says. “Sas, Sam, and the team (both in the UK and US) are so supportive and it’s an added bonus to be reunited with Alison Donald who played such an integral part in my career while at Chrysalis.
“Kobalt has an old-school, bespoke, and independent feel, yet with its cutting edge technology provides transparency, accuracy, and assurance to its songwriters. I couldn’t be happier with my new family."
Once again, welcome to Kobalt, Fraser!
