Songwriter/artist Mat Kearney has signed with Big Loud Mountain Management and has new music in the works.
Kearney’s unique blend of hip-hop, adult alternative, and spiritually-based songwriting have garnered a dedicated fanbase during his 10-year career. His current record, Just Kids (released in February 2015), became his fourth-consecutive Top 5 release on the Billboard Christian Albums chart. The prolific writer has also contributed songs to dozens of television shows and movies, including Friday Night Lights, Parenthood, and Soul Surfer. Kearney recently wrapped his run on the COMPADRES 2016 Tour, presented by Needtobreathe. His career breakthrough came in 2006 with his major label debut, Nothing Left To Lose, which has sold over 450,000 copies.
“Big Loud is an exciting place to be. Great people with big ideas,” said Kearney. “After being on a major label for 10 years I felt a strong need to start this journey together as an independent artist. It has been so inspiring, and I feel lucky to have such a world-class team down the street.”
Big Loud Mountain partner Seth England said of the signing, “After our first meeting with Mat, we knew we had to officially work together. I’ve always respected Mat’s career from a distance all these years. We couldn’t be more excited to join his team. We’ve had the pleasure of hearing what Mat is working on next and I can confidently say the best is yet to come for him.”
Big Loud Mountain is also home to superstars Florida Georgia Line and breakout artists Chris Lane and Dallas Smith.
