Singer-songwriter Ngaiire has just inked a brand new publishing deal with Wise Music Australia, coinciding with her upcoming LP release, 3.

"Holy crap!" the singer said of the news. 

"If you had told me years ago that I'd be sharing the same publisher as Sufjan Stevens, Anoushka Shankar, Bryce Dessner or even freakin’ Philip Glass I'd tell you to leave the room and to not ever speak to me of such things ever again. 

"As my first publishing home I feel incredibly humbled that Wise would even consider me worthy enough to stand beside such incredible composers. This is the start of an exciting new turn in my journey as both a composer and a songwriter and I'm so happy it's with a team who really get it.”

Ngaiire joins the group alongside the likes of Tom Waits, Harts, Joker composer Hildur Gudnadottir and many more.

“Every time I have seen Ngaiire perform, I have been struck by her professionalism and perfectionism, her awe-inspiring theatrical performances," Wise Music Australia Managing Director Jane English added of the signing.
