Whakaio Taahi and Melissa Fuller have signed with Third & Verse Publishing.

As a songwriter Taahi’s credits include penning the end title song for The Amazing Spiderman and three top ten Australian albums.  He is a multi-intrumentalist and the former guitarist and principal writer of the band Tonight Live and currently lives in Nashville as a full-time writer/producer. Taahi has recently been collaborating with artists such as Noah Kahan, ZZ Ward, Emerson Hart and Mat Kearney.

Fuller penned her first song at age 12 and earned her first cut as a sophomore in college.  A record deal immediately followed and Fuller spent most her early career opening for rock and country legends ZZ Top, Diamond Rio and Lonestar. In addition to her own projects, Fuller has released a Christmas Jazz record with her trio The Ellas and a No. 1 EDM album in five countries and has written hundreds of songs.  She has recently worked on projects with LANCO, Rachel Reinert and Mikas Setzer.

“Whakaio Taahi and I have written together for years,” said Third and Verse Founder David Hodges. “His instincts for production and melody are always fresh and exciting. I couldn’t be happier having him on the Third and Verse roster. Melissa Fuller is one of my favorite collaborators in Nashville. Her ability to create original, authentic music with any artist in any genre is remarkable. Shelby and I can’t wait to hear what comes of her being part of the Third and Verse team.”
