Sony Music Entertainment has announced the signing of Canadian singer/songwriter Jocelyn Alice to a worldwide record deal with Sony affiliate Disruptor Records. As an indie artist, Alice scored a Canadian radio hit with 2014 single “Jackpot” — one certified Gold in August 2015 — and that success attracted the attention of Disruptor.
The Calgary-based singer wrote and recorded "Jackpot" with Calgary electro-prog artist, Hello Moth. The dance-pop track sprung to life on an Edmonton radio station and fanned out from there after Bell Media radio stations started promoting it nationally.
Since then she has teamed up with Ryan Guldemond, producer and frontman for West Coast act Mother Mother — and started work on future tracks.
She and her team — which includes management, as well as Lisa Jacobs (her musical partner in the bass-vocal duo Jocelyn & Lisa, and still her musical director and sometimes songwriting partner) — are now lining their ducks up with Sony and Distruptor with the hope of hitting an even bigger jackpot down the road.
No word yet on the timing for a new release.
