Peter McCamley, Creative Director at Sentric, said: “We are delighted to extend our partnership with Tileyard and to kick this off by signing Zacharie and Yannick is beyond exciting. The incredible songwriting talent of the duo is evident in their previous successes, of which some I have been lucky to work with them on. I am thrilled to start working with Steve Jervier and the team again and excited to see the creative expertise that the Tileyard team will also bring into this partnership.

Tileyard Music co-founder Charlie Arme said: “Having had massive success with Yannick and Soke over the years and getting to know them as people and creatives at various writing camps and sessions, we are so honoured that they have chosen us to be their publishing home. Their continued worldwide success along with the tenacity and hard work of their management team now combining forces with the Tileyard A&R team and Sentric team will be a long-standing and hugely fruitful working relationship.
