Amy Yon signs to Warner Chappell Publishing by Simon King

We are very excited that Amy Yon, the latest addition to the Covert Roster has signed a worldwide publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music Publishing.

Amy has a voice filled with enchantment and wisdom. Brought up witness to the nightlife of her mum's pubs and bars, Amy's songs are riddled with anecdotes and wry based on the colourful characters she has met on her way. Her sound is reminiscent of a young Stevie Nicks with the glottal growl of Janis Joplin or Etta James.
