Shea Fowler

Cornman Music has launched CornMGMT, which will be helmed by former Cornman Music Creative Director Shea Fowler. Additionally, Rakiyah Marshall has been added to the Cornman Music family as Creative Director.

“As Shea Fowler takes over the helm of our CornMGMT team, we are super excited to have Rakiyah Marshall joining our Cornman Music family as Creative Director,” said Brett James, who started the boutique publishing company in 2007. “She’s the perfect blend of youth and experience and her warmth and sense of humor make her the perfect fit.”

Fowler will oversee management for Cornman Music’s Caitlyn Smith who was recently announced as one of Monument Records’ flagship artists under the label helmed by Jason Owen and Shane McAnally.

“I am so excited and honored to be to be a part of the Cornman Music family, owned by acclaimed songwriter Brett James, who has given me the opportunity to work with such talented writers and a rich catalogue of hits,” Marshall said. “Looking forward to this new journey and the chance to discover homes for some great songs.”
