Six writers Lucy Moss and Toby Marlow have signed a deal with the publishing arm of Warner Music Group.

Warner Chappell Music said it would work with the writers to develop them as “songwriters for contemporary artists”, as well as working with them on musical theatre projects.

Under the deal, the publishing company has agreed a joint venture with the producers of Six – Kenny Wax, Global Musicals and George Stiles – and with Paul Lisberg of Loudmouth Music, covering all the songs in the show. Each party will have a stake in the use of the songs on streaming services and on radio.

The writers said the deal would help them take the music of the show to “even more fans worldwide”.

Warner Chappell Music managing director Mike Smith said “musical theatre is undergoing a global renaissance” and added that Moss and Marlow could be “at the heart of the new creative explosion”.

“As well as writing and directing Six, what really excites me about working with them is developing them as songwriters for contemporary artists. We’re already bringing them into writing camps and see a terrific future for them in this area, as well as musical theatre,” he said.
