Parallel Music Publishing has announced Blake Chaffin as the first songwriter to join its Nashville roster. Chaffin is a graduate of Kansas State University who moved to Nashville in 2002.
“To have someone believe in you is incredible,” says Chaffin. “This is a dream come true and I can’t wait to see what’s next.”
“Blake has great ideas, strong melodies and a passion for writing,” says Tim Hunze, who heads up Parallel Music Publishing. “History has proven that those are the makings of a great songwriter. Parallel is thrilled that we signed him before someone else did.”
Parallel Music Publishing is a division of the Los Angeles-based Parallel Entertainment, which opened its full-scale Nashville operation in August. The publishing company is a partnership between Hunze, Parallel Founder/CEO J.P Williams, and Nashville office head C.T. Wyatt. The company’s LA roster includes comedians Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall, and Lisa Lampanelli as well as music acts like Zella Day and Warner Music Nashville’s Dean Alexander.
