Phoenix Music International
It is with huge sadness and very heavy hearts that Phoenix Music International announce that our Head of Publishing Felix Hines has passed away. Felix joined Phoenix in 2012 after 17 successful years in the publishing world, 7 of them as MD of renowned London publisher Westbury Music. His extraordinary A&R talent was responsible for the signings of Riva Starr, Theo Parrish and Ragga Twins amongst others and took us to the lofty heights of the UK and US charts.
His latest signings, GoGo Penguin are shortlisted for the Mercury Prize, an achievement he was rightfully so proud of. He leaves a wife and devastated family, friends and colleagues.
On behalf of his colleagues and the company, I would ask that over the next few difficult days you give us time to respond to any questions you may have.
