Melbourne songwriter and producer Woodes has signed a worldwide publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing Australia.

Woodes, otherwise known as Elle Graham, has received a large amount of attention for her singles ‘Daggers and Knives’ and ‘The Thaw’, which were both released last year to acclaim both at home and overseas. The latter song reached #12 on the iTunes Alternative Chart in Norway, while her self-titled EP scaled the top 20 iTunes charts in six countries, including a #1 on the Singapore Alternative Album Charts.

“I’m so proud and grateful to be working with the Universal Publishing Group,” said Graham. “At the core of why I do music, I love songwriting and working with other people, as I thoroughly enjoy the problem solving aspect of writing and collaboratively working with others. I’ve been a writer for many years, the Woodes project was a branch off of that once I began forming everything together my own production and creative direction. This new chapter is something I’ve been working towards for so many years and I feel at home with the Universal Publishing Group.”
