Toronto-based creative, singer-songwriter and producer Sean Leon has signed a global publishing agreement with Sony Music Publishing. Leon has earned acclaim for his own innovative output while also scoring a Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit as a co-writer on Justin Bieber’s 2x RIAA platinum-certified “Peaches” ft. Daniel Caesar and Giveon.
In addition, he has worked closely with GRAMMY® award-winning R&B artist Daniel Caesar and collaborated with Ye on 2019’s GRAMMY® award-winning album Jesus Is King. His latest venture, PUPIL, is a creative company that creates success stories through ethical development, design, and distribution. “I’m thrilled to be a part of the Sony Music Publishing family,” said Sean Leon. “This union has brought me nothing but joy. I had been looking to be a part of something larger than myself for a very long time and now finally, I have been given the opportunity to expand my reach. I’m so grateful to have Sony in my corner and I’m excited to make history together.”
Sony Music Publishing Senior Manager, A&R Will Skalmoski says, “We are thrilled to welcome Sean Leon to Sony Music Publishing.

I feel beyond grateful to be on team Erick to support his undoubtedly successful journey ahead with Jesse Shatkin and Sony Music Publishing.”
