Deluge Music has signed Johnny Gates to a global publishing deal.
The former frontman for Los Angeles rock band Runaway Saints (a trio that spent time working in Nashville early in their career), Gates appeared on NBC’s The Voice before returning to Nashville.
“Johnny is a global talent who deserves a chance for music lovers all over the world to hear what we fell in love with here at Deluge Music,” says Deluge Music President Mark Friedman.
“Johnny has the talent, experience and poise of both a star and a professional. His music defies genres and zip codes. I’m proud to work beside him – and excited to build this next era with him!” says Deluge Music’s Creative Director Emily Dryburgh.
“I can’t begin to describe my excitement to be back in Nashville and having this opportunity with Deluge Music,” Gates said. “I created some amazing memories in this town, but the story always felt a little unfinished. So, I’m beyond grateful to Mark, David [Robkin] and Emily for giving me this chance to finish what I started here in Nashville. Deluge has such a family vibe, and I’m just really pumped to be a part of the crew!”
