Songwriters Hannah Dasher and Dylan Schneider have signed exclusive publishing agreements with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, in partnership with Sony/ATV songwriter and producer Jaren Johnston.

Dasher is currently working on her debut album, which Johnston is producing. She recently had her first cut with Brad Paisley, and the song will be on his upcoming album. In the past year, she has performed with Jon Pardi, The Eli Young Band and The Cadillac Three. “Hannah Dasher has a voice and personality I feel the country format desperately needs,” said Johnston. “Her ‘Dolly Parton on cocaine’ vibe puts her in a league of her own. She is a rock star plain and simple.”

Sony/ATV’s Abbey Adams commented, “The music Hannah is writing and recording right now is so fresh. Her traditional country vocal and Jaren’s rockin’ production is extremely exciting! I have so much appreciation for her honest lyrics and her desire to push the limits for women in country music.”

Schneider recently released his debut EP, Wannabe, and has had more than 600,000 streams on Spotify. “Dylan Schneider is a country star in the making, and it is happening right in front of our eyes. At 16 years old, he has an understanding of song structure that took me years to find. You can hear his influences in his mature voice, but he ain’t The Cadillac Three, he ain’t Dierks, he ain’t Luke…he’s Dylan Schneider,” said Johnston.

Adams added, “Dylan has amazed me with his writing, his vocal ease and his confidence in a live performance. At such a young age, he really is an old soul.”

Johnston is a member of The Cadillac Three and has co-written hits including “You Gonna Fly” recorded by Keith Urban, “Southern Girl” by Tim McGraw, “Beachin’” by Jake Owen and “Raise ‘Em Up” by Keith Urban featuring Eric Church. Johnston said, “[My wife] Evyn and I are so excited to kick off our first publishing venture with two extremely talented artist/writers.”
