This week, the team behind Aurora Aksnes announced that two major recording deals have been landed for the hotly-tipped artist: Aksnes is now signed to iconic Decca Records in Europe and renowned label Glassnote in the US and remaining territories.
Says Aksnes on the two major deals landed this week:
– It feels really good to be believed in. I’m glad I got the chance and now I’ll grab it. Once I met the Glassnote, Decca and Petroleum teams, I knew that these were the people I wanted to work with. We all share the same love for music, and that’s what matters most. I cannot wait to start working with the team I now have with me and make a wonderful album.
