ATLANTIC RECORDS SIGNS RISING MUSIC STAR REILEY
TO A WORLDWIDE RECORD DEAL




Musical talent and social media star Reiley, who hails from the Faroe Islands, has signed a worldwide recording contract with Atlantic Records in the U.S. The deal was formally signed in New York City several few weeks ago and announced by Reiley on his TikTok account this past weekend. Reiley’s music and his management were introduced to Pete Ganbarg, President, A&R, Atlantic Records last year by Sat Bisla, President & Founder, A&R Worldwide.

Reiley Signs With Atlantic Records
Reiley is managed by Chosen Music, which is overseen and run by Alistair Goldsmith (President, Chosen Music), and is a joint venture between Alistair and Professor Jonathan Shalit OBE, Chairman & Founder, InterTalent Rights Group based in London, England.

As of today, Reiley has over 4.8 million followers and almost 50 million likes on TikTok. Reiley is one of the talented new rising new stars of this new decade and continues to build a robust fanbase and engagement within TikTok and his other social media and streaming platforms.

Pete Ganbarg stated, “We are super–excited to have Reiley join us at Atlantic Records. And are very thankful to Sat Bisla and his team [A&R Worldwide] for alerting us to Reiley.” Ganbarg and his team at Atlantic Records had courted Reiley for many months, overcoming some stiff competition from a number of other major labels before his recent signing with them.

Alistair Goldsmith commented, “It’s great to be in business with Atlantic Records – a label that I have long respected. They have an exceptional record of breaking new artists globally and we can’t wait to get started. The label’s passion for Reiley – which exuded from across the business – and reciprocal vision made it a clear decision despite the fierce competition. I am really looking forward to working with Craig, Julie, Pete, Marc and the rest of the team at Atlantic to bring Reiley’s artistic vision and super talent to audiences around the world.”

Professor Jonathan Shalit OBE added, “I loved Reiley’s first stated ambition he had from when we met him – his Instagram simply stated ‘I want to sell out arenas.’ He told me he wanted to play a concert to a crowd of 50,000 people as that is more than the entire population of where we discovered him in the Faroe Islands, which only has 49,290 people. I am excited by his enormously special singing, writing and visual flair.”

The song has entered the Top 20 Shazam and landed on Spotify’s Hot Hits Australia playlist (1.3 million followers). “Live In Life” follows their last single, “Falling Asleep At The Wheel,” a collaboration with Vic Mensa and is taken from their new album due at the back half of the year.
