Everyone at EMI would like to welcome Angaleena and our new partner Ten Ten Music, and we look forward to the bright future of this talented writer and artist.”
Ten Ten Music co-president Jewel Coburn, added, “When Barry and I first met Angaleena we both went ‘wow!’ Several years down the road we helped set her up with Ashley Monroe as writing partners and Ashley introduced Angaleena to Miranda. It was a perfect match! It’s been magical seeing Angaleena grow as a writer and performer, we have believed in her right from start and we continue to support her on this incredible journey.”
“The road from my front porch in Kentucky to Music Row has been long and hard but well worth traveling,” expressed Presley. “I want to thank everyone at EMI and Ten Ten Music for helping make my little songs reach front porch dreamers all over the world.”
