Publishing Australia is pleased to announce the signing of rising Sydney pop/rock band Little
Sea to a global music publishing deal.

"We are extremely excited to become a part of the Universal Music
Publishing family. This incredible opportunity is an amazing next step in our young careers, and to be given this platform as songwriters is both motivating and highly rewarding. We are excited about our future!" Said Little

Sea will shortly embark on their maiden US voyage with plans in place to write and collaborate with UMPG's international song-writing network as they prepare their debut album. Prior to the songwriting jaunt, Little
