Kassner Music is thrilled to share the news that it has signed songwriter and producer Joseph Wander to an exclusive global publishing deal.
Joseph began his musical career as an engineer for Miloco Studios, working with a wide range of popular artists including The 1975, Frank Ocean, Kasabian, Disclosure and Sampha. Joseph then gradually moved into production work and contributing to the creative vision of his projects. This led to him co-writing the first two EPs released by Dodie, ‘Intertwined’ (2016) and ‘You’ (2017), the latter of which reached the Top 10 in the UK Albums Chart and Top 20 in the Australian Albums Chart.
In 2020, Joseph decided to become a full-time writer-producer and has since co-written releases by Declan J Donovan, Only The Poets, Emie Nathan, Conor Byrne and Luca George, amongst others. He also produced Cian Ducrot’s UK Top 20 track “I’ll Be Waiting” (2022), which featured on Cian’s UK #1 album ‘Victory’ (2023).
A recipient of the PRS Foundation Hitmaker Fund, Joseph has recently been collaborating with the likes of Lewis Capaldi, Dhruv, Ryan Mack, James TW, Bow Anderson and Jasmine Jethwa, with several major releases in the pipeline, including a forthcoming cut on the deluxe edition of Måneskin’s latest record ‘Rush’, due for release on 10th November.
Joseph’s manager, Joe Gaynor of Seven7 Management, comments on the deal: “Joe’s an incredible talent, his production and songwriting has flourished over the past few years. His work ethic is unmatched, and it’s been an incredible journey so far. Joining Kassner’s extended family felt like the natural next step for Joe. A company with a rich catalogue history and fantastic new A&R blood at the helm in Brian Mahoney and Florence Langhorn. We’re both incredibly excited for what the future holds working together.”
Kassner Music Head of A&R, Brian Mahoney, said: “We’re all delighted that Joe has decided to join the Kassner roster. We have been so excited about him and his talent from the day we met and this feeling is reflected across our tightly knit team. His creativity and ideas are boundless and we feel privileged to help him, Joe Gaynor and the amazing team at 7 Seven Management realise his vision.”
Kassner Music A&R Manager, Florence Langhorn, said: “We’re thrilled to be working with Joe and honoured to be new additions to his creative team”.
