EXETER-BORN singer Stephen Chase is being hailed as one to watch after his three-piece production group WME was signed to Sony.
The initials are short for We Make Everything, a name that refers to the fact that Stephen and his fellow band mates Guy Furious and Tom Smith, from Luton, write and produce all of their material from scratch.
The trio came together in 2012 and have formed one of the industry's most highly anticipated music collectives.
WME focuses on creating demo references for major artist placements. Genres covered vary from dance, pop and urban, to motown, funk, acoustic and reggae.
When making records, everything is done in-house, from laying down the instrumental and writing the words, to the referencing and mixing and mastering. It is this unique appeal that has seen some of America's biggest musical hitters offer WME a publishing deal.
The next step is to build their profile both sides of the pond with the release of their up-coming EP Good Company.
Stephen said: "The creative minds we met in America exposed us to such a diverse range of production and writing. Being immersed in an environment of people at the top of their game really inspired us to make a great EP. It displays attributes of both British and American influence, a fusion we hope brings something fresh to the table.
"There is an incredible amount of work to be done to achieve any of our goals, but we're just getting started and we're excited for what the future holds."
With the imminent release of the EP, the future looks bright for WME, and while an artist deal hasn't come along yet, it perhaps won't be long before we're looking at them as artists in their own right.
