Patrick Joseph Music, a joint venture with Songs Music Publishing, has signed ASCAP member Ben Caver to its roster of songwriters.

PJM President Pat Higdon commented, “Ben is a wonderful writer and we are extremely excited to add him to our roster. He has a distinct vocal style and a fresh approach to crafting songs. He blends Country, Pop and R&B influences in what he describes as Southern Pop. No matter what you call it, it sounds like a formula for HITS to me!”

A native of Hoover, Alabama, Caver came to Nashville in 2003 to attend Belmont College. He has had songs recorded by Rascal Flatts, Kenny Rogers, Trisha Yearwood, Lauren Alaina and more.
