The Dublin-based alt-pop act, and her collaborator Daniel McIntyre (Lullahush), have inked a global deal with independent publisher BDi Music.

Aoife McCann, aka Æ MAK, was the first artist chosen for Festival Republic’s ReBalance Programme – a PRS Foundation supported initiative launched in 2018 to promote female-led bands and solo artists.

In 2018 she supported Warpaint, tune-yards, and Django Django, played UK festivals like Latitude and the Great Escape, as well as her own sold out headline tours in Ireland.

The new year sees the duo head to the Netherlands to perform at Europe’s biggest showcase festival, Eurosonic.

The independent publishing business BDi Music was founded by Sarah Liversedge in 2004, and she said of the new deal: ‘Aoife and Daniel are both incredibly creative artists and writers, and they are thriving in this collaboration. They are garnering some real attention across press and radio, and have played to great audiences at high profile festivals across the UK. 2019 is going to be a great year for them.’

Representatives of Jawdropper Management, who manage Æ MAK, added: ‘We are hugely excited to be working with Sarah and the brilliant team at BDi. Aoife and Daniel are incredibly talented individuals and it was clear from the start that Sarah understood and shared their vision as artists and that together the future can be very exciting and successful.’
