BMG/BBR Music Group has signed the band King Calaway to its roster. The group’s self-titled debut EP will be released Jan. 25 via BBR’s Stoney Creek Records imprint.
Members Caleb Miller, Chris Deaton, Simon Dumas, Jordan Harvey, Chad Michael Jervis, and Austin Luther each made their own way to Nashville chasing their dreams from across the globe, hailing from towns in the American Midwest and the Atlantic seaboard to the small coastal country of Gibraltar and the Central Belt of Scotland. They came together as King Calaway in early 2018, and offer a fresh new take on country with a sound reminiscent of the Eagles. The band is guided by a co-production team that includes Robert Deaton and Ross Copperman.
“King Calaway is that rare combination of incredible individual talent combined with amazing group chemistry,” says Jon Loba, EVP/BBR Music Group. “Their skill as musicians, vocalists and entertainers, along with Robert Deaton and Ross Copperman’s creative vision has very quickly fueled the passions and excitement of not only those of us in the BBR Music Group but also BMG and Bertelsmann globally. We can’t wait to introduce them to partners and audiences around the world!”
“The six musicians who make up King Calaway are a fresh take on contemporary country music,” adds Robert Deaton. “These young men hail from all corners of the globe, but when put together on a stage, they are one and magic happens.”
“The six of us are beyond excited to be working with the great teams at BMG and BBR. They’ve already dedicated so much time and effort into this project, and we’re incredibly grateful,” noted King Calaway’s Chad Michael Jervis. “We’re ready for the world to hear all the songs we’ve worked so hard on.”
Already firmly laying roots in Nashville, King Calaway will make its debut on the Grand Ole Opry stage on March 1. The band is booked by United Talent Agency and managed by 24 Entertainment.
