Carla Wehbe Signs Global Publishing Deal With BMG (EXCLUSIVE)

BMG has signed Carla Wehbe to an exclusive music publishing deal on a global basis, TMN can exclusively reveal.

The Sydney-based singer, songwriter and self-taught producer generated buzz in 2019 when, as a teen, she featured on fellow BMG writer Tyron Hapi’s “Touched,” a single which has accumulated upwards of 7 million streams on Spotify alone.

The following year, she independently released her debut EP Half Past Nine, earning high rotation on triple j.

In 2021, Wehbe collaborated with Illy on the track “No Feelings,” which appeared on the rapper’s ARIA No. 1 album The Space Between; contributed writing to Vera Blue’s “Temper”; and signing a recording deal with Warner Music Australia, the first fruits of which was the single “hurts to love you.”

Carla also hosts Valley Girls in Kangaroo Valley, a songwriting camp which brings together songwriters, artists and producers to make sweet music.

“I’m so happy to be part of the BMG family and can’t wait to work with them on this next phase of my career,” Wehbe comments. “I am also excited to work with Christina Thiers as she was the A&R who helped me get my first record deal. Getting to continue our working relationship feels really great”.

The BMG deal comes on the heels of Wehbe’s new single “Is Forever Off The Table?,” which triple j’s programmers recently added to rotation, and the release of a “reimagined” cut of “hurts to love you.”

The new signing, whose talents extend into videography and photography, “is a remarkable artist and songwriter with a timeless approach to music,” comment Christina Thiers, BMG director of A&R (Publishing) in Australia.

“The way her concepts and storytelling effortlessly feed into her range of artistic talents is magnetic. I’m incredibly excited to welcome her to BMG and we look forward to playing a key role in helping her achieve big things”.

At BMG, Wehbe joins a domestic publishing roster that includes Alison Wonderland, What So Not, Peking Duk, Young Franco, Blessed, Client Liaison, KLP, Neil Finn, Cut Copy and more.
