Razor & Tie Music Publishing has signed singer-songwriter Thomas Finchum. A former Olympic diver, the Indianapolis native is currently a senior in the music business program at Belmont University.

“Thomas is one of those rare, gifted humans that writes songs that cut straight through the surface and put hurt in your heart, while delivering them with a flawless and convincing voice. He’s a deep well of talent. I’m honored that he’d share his career with us at Razor & Tie,” says Brad Kennard, Razor & Tie Music Publishing’s VP of Creative.

Finchum says, “I’m so excited and grateful to join the team at Razor & Tie! From the very first time I met with Brad, I knew I found someone that not only believed in the music I was making, but someone that would challenge and push me to be better every single day. I can’t wait to see what this next chapter will hold.”

Finchum’s foray into music began later than most, after picking up the guitar at age 21. He spent the next couple of years playing local bars and clubs around Indianapolis before enrolling in Belmont University. Now 26, Finchum found himself being sought after by several music publishers, before deciding to sign with Razor & Tie Music Publishing.

In June, Finchum performed his music during the U.S. Olympic Team Trials for diving, as part of the Road to Rio Tour in Indianapolis. Finchum was a platform diver on the U.S. 2008 Olympic Team before pursuing a career in country music.
