Kobalt signs Gotye

Business News Deals Labels & Publishers


Music publishing firm Kobalt yesterday announced a new deal with Gotye, which will see the Kobalt team represent the Aussie multi-instrumentalist outside his home country.

The deal, via Kobalt’s Sydney office, is part of Gotye’s plan to expand his profile outside Australia and New Zealand. His co-manager, Danny Rogers, recently told The Music Network: “We’re now fixing our attention on America and UK and the rest of Europe. It’s really connecting in so many markets. The feeling around the UK is really strong”.
