Jay Z Signs Steven Spielberg’s Kids to Roc Nation
It looks like Jay Z is really into signing the heirs of Hollywood superstars because he just added Steven Spielberg’s son/daughter duo, Wardell — formerly known as Theo and Sasha — to his Roc Nation management company. While Willow Smith thought she was something special, as the only Tinseltown offspring to be snatched up by Hov for her talent, it seems more are starting to catch his eye and do big things in the process.
According to theybf.com, the Spielberg kids are signed to Roc Nation management and recently released their first EP, appropriately-titled, ‘Brother/Sister.’ Wardell’s music is a combination of folk, pop and indie rock with Sasha’s ethereal vocals accompanied by her brother Theo’s surreal atmospheric instrumentation and production.
Wardell’s first single, ‘Opossum,’ is out now and has been featured on NPR’s Song of the Day and NME’s Buzz List. Now, with Jay Z leading the way, the Spielberg heirs are set to drop their debut album next year.
