Skyville Records has entered an exclusive worldwide distribution deal with Sony Music Nashville. The fall debut from Stealing Angels will be the first release via the new partnership.
Under the agreement, Sony Music Nashville will offer manufacturing, sales, copyright administration and website development. Under the creative direction of producer Paul Worley, Skyville will find, develop and produce the talent, as well as handle promotion, business development and legal affairs for its roster.
“Paul Worley has amassed an amazing track record through the years,” remarks Gary Overton, Chairman & CEO, Sony Music Nashville. “Supported by his talented staff and roster, Skyville is poised for an exciting future, and we’re privileged to share in it.”
“Our partnership with Sony Nashville is a distinctive one,” declares Kevin Herring, Skyville Records President. “This speaks volumes about Gary’s vision for the future and for our mutual commitment to reshaping the music business in the 21st Century.”
Industry veterans Worley, Wally Wilson and Glen Morgan joined forces in 2004 to launch Skyline Publishing. Wayne Halper joined the organization in 2009 as head of business and legal affairs. After many years of successful chart action, the partners founded Skyville Records in 2010, with a focus and emphasis towards toward recognizing and nurturing the talents of new artists and artist/songwriters.
