British songwriter and producer Lostboy has signed a worldwide deal with Warner Chappell Music.

Lostboy, who’s real name is Peter Rycroft, has collaborated with Anne-Marie, Ella Eyre, Kehlani, Nina Nesbitt and Why Don’t We, alongside recent writing sessions with Birdy, Jason Derulo, Julia Michaels, Lewis Capaldi and Tom Grennan.

Rycroft said: “This feels like a really exciting time for me. I’ve been working with some great producers, songwriters and artists, while also getting my own artist project off the ground. Saul and the whole Warner Chappell team have been there every step of the way. The energy and passion they’ve shown already has blown me away and I can’t wait to work with them in this next phase of my career.”

Saul Fitton, international creative manager, A&R, Warner Chappell Music UK, said: “It’s fantastic that Lostboy’s joining the Warner Chappell roster. The team’s extremely excited about the opportunity to support such a brilliant artist, songwriter and producer.”
