Band signs deal within one month
WITHIN a month of meeting a former Sony Music scout, a group of friends signed an exciting record deal.
Sets is a folky rock band led by singer Dominic Scott, a university student from Kippington Road, Sevenoaks.
Recently they were snapped up by French firm My Major Company, funded by independent investors and headed by Jonnie Blackburn who scouted for Sony for 15 years.
Dominic, 20, said: "Around a month ago Jonnie came to listen to us and was very enthusiastic. He was singing one of our songs in the taxi back to the station.

"At their head offices in Richmond half the record company came into the board room and I was suddenly playing guitar to all these executives.
"It was nerve-wracking but they all thought it was great and rushed us to London to sign.
"This is the sort of break every band dreams of."
Mr Blackburn said: "Sets have a great musical future. Not only is Dominic a great writer – lyrics and melody-wise – he is young and has more room to grow."
Other members of the band include drummer Harry Pearce, bassist Tim Worthington, of Oak Lane, 21-year-old pianist Leila Grove from Tunbridge Wells and violinist Jessica Watson, 20.
