Sony Music Nashville has signed Jordyn Shellhart, a 15-year old singer/songwriter from Franklin, Tenn. The label group is distributing her first album, In A Room, which has already been released.
Shellhart got her start by performing for Frank Rogers and Chris Dubois. It was the day after her 14th birthday and Sea Gayle Music offered her a publishing deal on the spot.
Her entire debut was recorded in a room at her manager Rick Barker’s house, using only instruments and sound equipment available at Best Buy. In conjunction, Shellhart is set for a series of summer performances as part of Best Buy’s @15 initiative, which helps give teenagers a voice.
Sony says Shellhart is a straight “A” student at Centennial High School, and that the sophomore is adamant about graduating before pursuing a full-fledged country music career.
