Nashville-based pop/R&B singer-songwriter Conor Matthews has inked a deal with Warner Records, in conjunction with Altadena, the music company founded by hit producer-songwriter busbee.
Matthews is the first pop artist to sign with Altadena through the partnership with Warner and has released his first major label single, “Too Late.”
Conor explains, “I wrote “Too Late” on a midnight flight back to my city – hadn’t seen this girl in forever and was hoping she was still around. When you haven’t spoken to an ex in a long time you start wondering how they feel and if they feel the same way about you, and if it’s too late to come through.”
Matthews was born in Illinois and moved to Nashville after graduating high school. A chance encounter led to a publishing deal with Keith Urban and Warner Chappell Music. At first, Matthews seemed intent on a career as a country songwriter, until a friend introduced him to the world of pop and R&B by way of Justin Timberlake’s music. Matthews forged a tight-knit, Los Angeles-based songwriting and production crew and began work on his project.
busbee adds, “As much as I admire Conor’s natural abilities as a vocalist, a songwriter, and an entertainer, I can’t help but admire his work ethic, his intense desire to win, and the way he treats those around him even more. I couldn’t be more excited to partner with Aaron Bay-Schuck [CEO/Co-Chairman], Tom Corson [COO/Co-Chairman], and the entire Warner Records family as we bring Conor’s music to the world.”
