Kiwi singer/songwriter Ezra Vine has joined the likes of Coldplay and The Beatles, signing a global record deal with Parlophone Records UK.

The Auckland-born musician, real name Joseph Farris, celebrated with a rooftop performance at the company's London office yesterday.

"Signing with Parlophone is the highlight of my career," he says.

"To be joining a label whose roster has been home to so many brilliant artists such as The Beatles, Coldplay, Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Two Door Cinema Club, Blur, and Gorillaz, is both humbling and a privilege. I can't wait to make records as a part of their family."

Ezra Vine first made his mark on New Zealand music scene last year, when his single Celeste was used on TV ads for TVNZ's channel One.
