British recording artist and songwriter Karl Michael has signed an exclusive global co-publishing deal with Peermusic Nashville.
Originally from London, Michael fell in love with rap, soul and R&B as a youngster and supplemented his natural gifts with a fierce work ethic. During a decade spent chasing his musical dreams, he landed a couple of major record deals, which unfortunately fell apart before they could get off the ground. He also later became a contestant on UK’s edition of The Voice.
On one of his trips to Nashville, he began penning material for himself, writing a series of singles—starting with “Highs And The Lows”—that would land him his first deal as a solo artist. Recorded with producers Jon Levine (Dua Lipa, Alessia Cara) and Scott Spock (Rihanna, Britney Spears), the pop tunes hinted at everything from James Arthur and Musiq Soulchild to Maroon 5 and Sam Smith, as they reflected on the emotional rollercoaster of Michael’s personal and professional life.
Michael moved to Nashville in 2020, and following a European tour opening for Teddy Swims in May 2022, began working on his next EP, with plans to release new material in the fall of 2023. He has written with some of the biggest names in music, such as Bruno Mars with “Can We Dance,” which has racked up more than 81 million streams on Spotify. Other collaborators/co-writers include Yungblud (“Loner”), Teddy Swims (“Liar”), Mitchel Tenpenny (“Save Me”), Dallas Wilson, Spencer Rabin, On The Outside and more.
“I’m very excited about Karl Michael coming to peermusic. Karl is one of the best singers in town and writing some of my new favorite songs. You can feel his energy and excitement when he is in the building,” shares Michael Knox, President of Peermusic Nashville.
Michael adds, “Working with the team at Peermusic is a dream come true. This is a team of outstanding music publishers and to be able to leverage their global reach and network is a great opportunity.”
