Kobalt has signed singer/songwriter and guitar virtuoso Patrick Droney. The worldwide agreement includes publishing administration for Droney’s future works.

“Patrick is an incredible talent and everyone on the team is beyond excited to be working with him,” said Kobalt General Manager, Nashville, Jesse Willoughby. “We’re grateful he’s chosen us to join his already great team of G Major Management. Welcome to the family Patrick, can’t wait to see what’s in store for you and look forward to growing your career.”

Named “Best Young Blues Guitarist” by the Robert Johnson Foundation at age 13, Droney spent his formative years touring with the likes of BB King, James Brown and Elvis Costello. After attending Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU, Droney placed songs in a number of network TV shows and attracted the attention of musical instrument manufacturer Fender (FMIC) as one of their go-to artist ambassadors. In 2017 the now-25-year-old signed with G Major Management and is currently working on his debut project, slated for release in 2018.

“I am so thrilled to be partnering with Kobalt,” said Droney. “Kobalt’s forward-thinking approach along with their passion and commitment to creators is hugely inspiring to me as an artist and songwriter. Being a part of their global roster allows me to work without boundaries, both geographically and creatively. I am so looking forward to what’s to come with this incredible team.”
