Breakout Sydney singer/songwriter Matt Corby is "signing" international record deals, Your Daily SPA can reveal. A joint venture with Atlantic and Elektra Records will cover the UK and US markets respectively.

In the UK Atlantic has launched the careers of similarly-moulded singler/songwriters artists like Ed Sheeran, Plan B and Paolo Nutini in the last five years, while re-invented Atlantic US imprint Elektra will see Corby rubbing shoulders with label mates like Bruno Mars, Cee Lo Green and Marina & The Diamonds.

Corby, whose enjoyed some massive success in the last 12 months - particularly with triple j favourite Brother - will release his triple platinum EP Into The Flame around the world September this year. That release will be followed shortly by his debut album.

The high profile signings, which are likely to be made official in the coming days, cap off a remarkable period of growth and development for Corby, which along with fantastic sales has garnered sold-out shows around the country, and indeed the world.

Returning to Australia next week after what will have been two months of shows across the two international territories, Corby will play the Groovin' The Moo festival and his own headline theatre tour. Following that he'll return to Los Angeles to continue work on the debut record.
