Ruston Kelly has signed a deal with Razor & Tie imprint Washington Square Music. Kelly’s debut EP with the label, Halloween, is due out April 7. The 10-track collection was produced by Mike Mogis. Kelly has penned songs for Tim McGraw (“Nashville Without You”), the Josh Abbott Band (“Front Row Seat”), and more. His song “Poison” has racked up over 590,000 Spotify streams, and the track “Black Magic” was featured on the season finale of the CBS show Scorpion.
“Ruston is an inspiring, honest, thoughtful songwriter who puts on a hell of a show,” says Washington Square/Razor & Tie Co-Owner Cliff Chenfeld. “You don’t see that combination often and we are thrilled that he has decided to work with us at Washington Square/Razor & Tie. We also like to hang out with him.”
“When people hear my songs, I want them to be affected in the way music affected me before I started doing it for a living,” Kelly states. “I want them to think, ‘Damn, that made me feel something important I didn’t know I needed to feel.’ I love playing music; it brings me so much joy, and I’m appreciative that Washington Square is helping share my music with the world. If I’m still doing this years from now, that’s more luck than I deserve.”
