Artist management firm First Company Management has signed Gotee Records artist Michael Cochren, of Cochren & Co.

Cochren will be repped by First Company managers Brandi Wagner and Derek Bruner.

Wes Campbell launched First Company Management in 1995; the firm’s roster includes Newsboys, Ryan Stevenson, 7eventh Time Down, Ashes Remain, Adam Agee and Austin French. The company also played a role in the development of the faith-based film franchise God’s Not Dead.

Cochren’s debut Gotee singles “Church (Take Me Back)” and “Grave” highlight a soulful, piano-pop sound. Cochren & Co. is featured on this fall’s “TobyMac & DiverseCity: The Theatre Tour”, which also includes fellow First Company client Stevenson.

“We are beyond excited to represent Cochren & Co.,” says Mike McCloskey, general manager, First Company Management. “From the beginning we knew they possessed something uniquely special, so it’s an honor to join the band on their journey forward.”

“Michael is a truly gifted lyricist and songwriter, and his experience in pastoral leadership adds a maturity to his message that is important in this cultural moment,” adds First Company Management’s Bruner. “It’s exciting to see so many new fans discover and embrace Cochren & Co.”
