Songwriter Jacob Lutz has signed a worldwide publishing agreement with 50 Egg Music, the artist development and publishing company co-owned by Jonathan Singleton, Luke Combs, and Tali Canterbury.
Said hit songwriter Singleton, “I don’t know if I’ve ever picked up the phone to call Tali faster than the first time I heard Jacob sing. I didn’t know what we were gonna do, but knew we had to do something. Jacob’s voice is undeniable, his personality is one of a kind, his guitar playing is obviously ‘Jacob’ and no one else. He’s the thing we are all looking for.”
Lutz is a North Carolina native who grew up listening to Sam Cooke, Garth Brooks, and John Mayer. He brings those influences to new single “Same Love,” co-written with Blake Bollinger and Andy Albert. It follows his recent release “Lonely Heart.”
Since moving to Nashville, Lutz has opened shows for Combs, Ashland Craft, Jimmie Allen, Matt Stell and more.
“Jacob is one of the most talented artists I’ve ever met with a work ethic and determination to match,” said Canterbury. “I can’t wait to see the giant career he will have in music.”
“When I first met the 50 Egg Music crew there weren’t any doubts in my mind,” Lutz said. “Not only did they feel like family to me, but everyone else in town had nothing but good things to say. They are great at what they do and more importantly they are great people. Couldn’t imagine joining a better company/family to help take my dream to the next level.”
Since its inception, 50 Egg Music has been a part of 11 No. 1 songs. In addition to Lutz, the roster also includes Craft, Tyler Braden, Shane Minor, Rob Snyder, Kenton Bryant, Reid Isbell, Rob Pennington and Jenna LaMaster.
