Sony/ATV has signed songwriters Tripp Howell and Chandler Baldwin to worldwide co-publishing deals.
Baldwin, a Snellville, Georgia native, moved to Tennessee to attend MTSU in 2010.
Howell, a Dalton, Georgia native, moved to Nashville in 2012. In between working at the family carpet business and playing shows, he met up with a group of musicians who would join together to form the band LANco.
Arista Nashville signed LANco in 2015 and the band is promoting its debut single, “Long Live Tonight.”
Howell stated, “I’m so excited to be working with the Sony/ATV crew. It’s an honor and a blessing to be surrounded by such great people!”
Sony/ATV executive Tom Luteran remarked, “Tripp’s unbridled enthusiasm for music and life is contagious. His unique demeanor comes through in the songs he writes. He lives and breathes music and I love that about him.”
Baldwin said, “I’ve always wanted to perform and write music for a living since I was a kid, and I feel so blessed to be able to do that every day. And I’m especially thankful to Sony/ATV for giving me this opportunity!”
Sony/ATV’s Hannah Williams commented, “Chandler’s passion for both performing and songwriting is such a pleasure to be around. His drive and work ethic is inspiring!”
