Reservoir has announced the first signing to its newly-opened Nashville office, under the leadership of its EVP of Creative John Ozier. The company has signed hit writer-artist Josh Mirenda to a worldwide publishing deal. The deal includes an interest in Mirenda’s entire catalog of works, plus exclusive representation on all future titles.
A Nashville native, Mirenda has co-written three No. 1 singles in as many years. The Platinum-selling “Somewhere On A Beach,” performed by Dierks Bentley, topped Billboard’s Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs charts and earned Mirenda the ASCAP Song of the Year award. Meanwhile, “They Don’t Know” and “Girl Like You” written for frequent collaborator Jason Aldean reached the top of the Mediabase Country Airplay chart and the Billboard Country Airplay chart, respectively.
In 2017, Mirenda released his debut single as a performer, “I Got You,” which has since climbed to 22 million streams globally. Following the launch of his 2018 self-titled EP, Mirenda went back to the studio with plans to drop a full-length debut album later this year. Over the past few years, he has opened shows for Easton Corbin, Rodney Atkins, Dylan Scott, Chris Young, and more.
“Josh is an unbelievably talented songwriter and artist,” Ozier said. “He has already written three huge hits and is just getting started. We are so excited to be working with him as we build out the Reservoir Nashville roster.”
Added Mirenda, “I am both honored and excited for this opportunity to work alongside John Ozier, Greg Gallo, and the entire Reservoir staff. Their commitment to writers, as well as artists, is unparalleled.”
