Whether you know her as the host of triple j’s House Party, or if you’ve seen her at some of Australia’s finest music festivals, there’s no doubting the influence that KLP has had on Aussie music. Now, this musical extraordinaire has just signed with BMG.
Following a pretty huge year in 2017, KLP (or Kristy Lee Peters, according to her driver’s license) has now signed a global publishing deal with BMG, which sees her join a roster that features the likes of Peking Duk, AC/DC, Matt Corby, Meg Mac, The Cat Empire, and so much more.
With over 14 million plays on her Soundcloud, KLP has been taking over the world lately, releasing huge tracks like ‘Changes’, ‘Never Be The Same’, and ‘Melt’, with another verified banger set to drop tomorrow. Of course, KLP has also been a pretty sought-after artist as well, working alongside the likes of Skrillex, What So Not, The Presets, and Slumberjack. Basically, you name an artist and KLP has probably had something to do with them.
As BMG Australia’s Managing Director Heath Johns explains, “Kristy is one of the most talented and hardest working songwriters in Australia. She can engage in songwriting sessions as an artist, topliner and/or producer.”
“This rare versatility puts her in an incredible position to take advantage of the unique possibilities and global opportunities that come with being a part of the BMG family”.
KLP herself shared her excitement, explaining, “I clicked instantly with the BMG team and love their international vision for their writers and genuine passion for their roster. I’m excited by the company culture and fresh approach that BMG is rolling out and can’t wait to write some tunes all around the world with my new BMG family”.
KLP is set to release her newest single, ‘Carried Away’ (which features the talents of Milwaukee Banks), tomorrow. Be sure to keep an ear out for it!
