Country duo Haley & Michaels have signed publishing and label deals with Sony/ATV Music Publishing and New York-based Sony/ATV label imprint Hickory Records, respectively.

“We both learned to write songs in Nashville,” the duo tells MusicRow of the signing. “The songwriting community is the reason each of us decided to move here. In addition to country, we have rock and pop influences and our music is a blend of all of that. Right after we had finished our latest recording session, our good friend Rick Stone called to tell us he had played the unreleased music for Danny Strick at Sony ATV in New York and that he wanted to meet us. That was the best phone call ever! When we sat down with Danny and played him our music, we could feel right away that we were speaking the same language about the songs, sound, and direction.”

“I am excited to work closely with Haley & Michaels,” said Sony/ATV Music Publishing U.S. co-president Danny Strick. “I believe that they have the potential to cross genres, both Country and Pop, and I look forward to providing opportunities to bring that to fruition.”

Haley & Michaels recently released their music on Spotify, where it was featured on the New Music Friday, New Boots, and Wild Country playlists, accompanying their breakout single “Giving It All (To You).”  The duo has accumulated over 10 million streams on Spotify.
