An enigmatic folk band from Diss has signed a worldwide publishing deal with a north American rights management company.

The Fludes, who play what they call Medieval orchestral rock, have signed a co-publishing deal with Toronto-based AMG, which was set up in 1998 by record producer Mark Berry, who has worked with Boy George, Duran Duran and Billy Idol.

AMG made its move after the release of the band's first album Ancient Tales earlier this year,

The album was set in the kingdom of Haddon and saw the three band members, vocalist Dawn Flude, composer Father Flude and the guitar-playing Enchanter, take part in a mystical musical journey.

Father Flude said: 'To have our music discovered by such an internationally acclaimed producer as Mark Berry, with his incredible track record of working with the cream of the music business, is a great privilege.'

After signing the deal, The Fludes will be moving to Toronto to record their second album. There are also plans to turn their first album into a Broadway show.
