VP of Black River Publishing Celia Froehlig today (Feb. 2) announced the signing of Josh Okeefe to the company. “Josh is a fantastic writer, artist and producer; one of the rare talents we publishers are always on the lookout for,” said Froehlig. “We are so happy to welcome him to the BRE family.”
Okeefe grew up in Derby, England and attended Brighton Institute of Modern Music in the UK. Following the advice of his academic directors, Okeefe left for Nashville at the age of 19.
“Black River was a dream,” said Okeefe, “and still is a dream.”
The announcement of Okeefe’s signing comes on the heels of Black River Entertainment’s CEO Gordon Kerr’s announcement that Froehlig renewed her contract with Black River Publishing.
