“MAY-A is incredibly special and her talent is very authentic and compelling. We are proud and honoured that she has decided to call Sony Music home for Australia and New Zealand.” 

“I’m so excited to kick off the next phase of MAY-A’s career. She is such a special artist with so much to offer and I can’t wait for the world to hear what she has been working on," co-manager Christian Lo Russo said. 

"It felt so surreal walking back into the Sony Music building after almost a decade since working with the label for my own band’s music [Amy Meredith]. It has been amazing reconnecting with Denis and the team.” 

“MAY-A, Christian and I are so happy to be partnering with Denis and the wonderful team at Sony Music Australia. We can’t wait to get to work!" added co-manager Matt Emsell.
