The Daydream Club signs publishing deal with Wise Music Group

The Daydream Club sign to Wise

RCM favourites The Daydream Club have signed an exclusive publishing contract with Campbell Connelly, part of Wise Music Group, in a deal including their back catalogue and future projects.

About The Daydream Club

Formed in 2010 by now husband and wife duo Adam and Paula Pickering, the British multi-genre duo have independently amassed over 100 Million streams to date, with a catalogue as wide-ranging as it is distinctive. As multi-instrumentalists, songwriters, composers and producers, the duo draw on influences including indie-folk, alternative, ambient, electronic, and classical.

Collaborations and achievements

Following the success of their classical crossover album ‘Piano Project’ (2016) The Daydream Club were nominated for the Best Digital Artist award by MusicAlly (the only unsigned artist to be short-listed) and the Unsigned Only IndiePreneur Award.

Under the artistic vision of former Creative Director Christopher Bailey, they collaborated with major fashion house Burberry over the course of several years on multiple campaigns; bespoke compositions, interactive window displays, apps, catwalks, live performances and as models.

Their music has also been used in a variety of TV and commercial placements, including BBC’s Football Focus, the award-winning independent film The Endless Winter II, HomeGoods, AXA, and Merrell.

The Daydream Club have featured in Vogue, Rolling Stone Magazine, Acoustic Magazine and most recently Pianist Magazine (2020) for their introspective and often filmic compositions and achievements as a self-released artist. They have also spoken at conferences, advising other self-released artists about music streaming, and promotion at industry panels across the UK.

Adam and Paula Pickering of The Daydream Club commented:

“We are so excited and inspired to be joining the Wise Music family. After 10 years of working independently, it took the incredibly lovely and enthusiastic people within Wise to make us want to open our doors and welcome some new team members to our Club. We’re massively hopeful for the many possibilities the future holds together and proud to be included alongside such talented artists.”

Wise Music Group’s Global Head of Media Marcus Wise said:

“We’re delighted to announce the signing of The Daydream Club to Wise Music Group. This team impressed me immediately with their diverse stylistic range and successful output of self-released albums. Their accomplishments in advertising and media placements marry perfectly with our global expertise in synchronization and we look forward to working with them to promote their remarkable catalogue and forthcoming work into new markets.”

About Campbell Connelly

One of the legendary names in popular music, the Campbell Connelly publishing imprint was started by Jimmy Campbell and Reg Connelly in 1925 to publish a song they had written that no other publisher wanted. Campbell Connelly & Company at once proved a great success and today, under Wise Music Group ownership, Campbell Connelly has grown into a vast catalogue of popular music spanning almost a century and including many evergreen popular songs including ‘Try A Little Tenderness’, ‘Goodnight Sweetheart’, ‘Show Me The Way To Go Home’, ‘We’ll Meet Again’ and ‘No Milk Today’.

The Daydream Club has two new albums in the pipeline which will be released on their own label, Poco Poco Records – details to be announced in due course.
