Amber Van Day signs to UMPG
Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) today announced that songwriter and musician Amber Van Day has signed a Global Publishing Deal.
Amber Van Day grew up in Brighton where, influenced by everyone from Elvis Presley and Aretha Franklin to Gorillaz and Avril Lavigne, she spent her teens playing local venues in small bands, singing, and writing music. At 18 she made the step to move to London, studying Commercial Music at Westminster University.
Since then, Amber’s been writing for both upcoming and established artists, gaining commercial success with Lost Frequencies, Tujamo and French DJ, Hugel. She is also working on her solo project which is set to be released in 2019. Her own project centres around themes of self-discovery and critique, through her unique brand of dark and distinctive pop which reflects the realities of growing up in today’s society.
Amber says: “Writing is my own form of therapy. I wrote for a sense of relief as it allows me to truly understand how I feel and the depths in which I feel it. I am put under a microscope, witnessing everything that is true and awkward and uncomfortable. Seeing every part of myself, allowing space to be vulnerable and being able to connect with other people. I think that’s why I love being both an artist and a writer, as it gives me freedom to push boundaries.”
We’re very excited to have Amber on board – watch this space for both her solo project and new writing work.
