SEPTEMBER 15, 2022 – Kobalt today announced that it has signed Cat Burns to a worldwide publishing administration agreement, including global synch and creative services for her catalog and future songs.

Cat Burns is a 22-year-old singer and songwriter from Streatham. The former BRIT school student went from busking on the Southbank to mastering TikTok in lockdown, singing a mix of her favorite covers and original music. As a result, she rapidly amassed around half a million followers in just three months and now sits on over 1 million followers on the platform. 

Brad Beausir, Senior Director, Creative, Kobalt, said, “Cat is one of the most exciting artists I have come across. We originally met over zoom in the middle of the pandemic, and I was immediately sold. I just remember her being so captivating and confident in who she is. Cat has never strayed from what she wanted to say and how her music needed to sound. I am so proud to have an artist like her on our roster. Cat Burns is a powerhouse and a global star. She represents everything amazing about music."

Alison Donald, Head Of UK Creative, “We couldn’t be more delighted to add Cat to the worldwide Kobalt family, she is one of the most exciting and authentic British artists of recent times.”
