Renowned music producer Paul Worley, along with partners Wally Wilson and Glen Morgan, have formed a new record label, Skyville Records. The label is the latest venture of the threesome who formed Skyline Music Publishing six years ago.
“This label is a natural extension of the artist development that we have always done,” Worley says. “It makes more sense now than ever as the music industry must create new ways of doing business.”
Records produced by Worley have sold more than 125 million units worldwide and have generated over one billion dollars in sales. He previously served as Executive VP at Sony Music Nashville and later as the VP and CCO at Warner Bros. Records in Nashville. Worley has discovered, developed and produced some of the most successful acts in country music history, such as the Dixie Chicks, Martina McBride, Big & Rich and most recently, Lady Antebellum.
Wilson is a Grammy-nominated hit record producer, music publisher and an accomplished musician, receiving numerous BMI and ASCAP Awards for his musical accomplishments. He is also a songwriter, penning hits for artists as diverse as Rascal Flatts, The Neville Brothers, Joe Cocker, Amy Grant, Vince Gill and many more.
Morgan is the co-founder of a prominent law firm in Beaumont, Texas and has worked directly with Worley and Wilson in a business management role. Joining executives Worley, Wilson and Morgan at Skyville will be Katie Voorhis (Head of Operations and Administration),Tristan Lora (Mgr.Tour Operations), Padget Crossman (Mgr. New Media Marketing), Paige Conners (A&R Administration), Peggy Fernandez (Executive Assistant Financial) and Jeremy Witt (Mgr. Studio Operations).
Larry Pareigis and his Nine North team will coordinate all national radio promotion activities for Skyville.
The first signing on the label’s artist roster is Stealing Angels. The trio will debut their first single, “He Better Be Dead” on July 12. They are currently on a national radio promotion tour and playing fairs and festivals around the country this summer.
