King Pen Music and Warner Chappell Music Nashville have expanded their business partnership. Previously, the two companies partnered to work with three-time CMA Vocal Duo of the Year winners Brothers Osborne. King Pen Music recently signed songwriter Ava Suppelsa.
Kelly King launched King Pen Music in 2011, signing Brothers Osborne as the first act and then adding to the roster with Pete Good and Brandon Ratcliff. The company’s catalog of songs would grow to include tracks recorded by Darius Rucker, Little Big Town, Brothers Osborne, Walker Hayes, Tim McGraw, and others. King also leads A&R for artists including Rascal Flatts, Trace Adkins, James Otto, Joe Nichols and more. King Pen’s Creative Manager Harrison Sokoloff guides the company in offering a range of creative services for artists from newcomers to superstars.
King launched her career in 1994, serving as Creative Director for companies including AVI Entertainment and Hayes Street Music. She also worked as partner for Teracel Music and My Good Girl Music, two Sony Music Nashville co-ventures.
“I am so excited to continue working with the team at Warner Chappell to expand my team here at King Pen Music,” said King. “I am always grateful for support and collaboration in finding and signing new talent and can’t wait to showcase everything these writers have to offer.”
“Kelly has proven over the years to have a true knack for identifying and developing talent,” said Ben Vaughn, President & CEO, Warner Chappell Music Nashville. “It’s been a pleasure to work with King Pen Music and I’m thrilled to continue our collaboration.”
