Sony/ATV Music Publishing Nashville Signs Duo After Midtown

Sony/ATV Music Publishing Nashville has signed duo After Midtown (which includes singer-songwriters Adam Ernst and Michael Rotundo) to a global publishing agreement.

The duo releases their debut single “Boys Like Us” today, and are readying their first EP. They are managed by a strategic partnership between The Core Ent’s Kevin “Chief” Zaruk, Simon Tikhman, and 10th Street Ent’s Scott Frazier and Chris Nilsson.

“Finding an atmosphere where our creativity is understood and appreciated was important to us,” After Midtown said, “and we know we found that with Rusty and Anna at Sony/ATV. We feel blessed to be surrounded by such an amazing team all the way around.”

Sony/ATV Nashville CEO Rusty Gaston said, “Adam and Michael have a way of weaving their broad influences into a country/alternative rock gumbo that results into infectious, sing-a-long choruses with all the heart of what makes country music so special. On behalf of all of us at Sony/ATV, we are fired up to welcome After Midtown to the team, and we look forward to spreading the gospel music.”
