Endurance Music Group has renewed its worldwide publishing agreement with chart-topping songwriter and producer Paul Sikes.
Sikes co-wrote recent hits by fellow EMG writers, including Stoney Creek Records artist Jimmie Allen’s second consecutive No. 1 song, “Make Me Want To,” and RECORDS/Arista Nashville artist Matt Stell’s second consecutive chart-topper, “Everywhere But On.” He has cuts on upcoming releases by Allen, Endurance writer and RECORDS artist Chase Martin, Cody Johnson and others. Sikes also co-wrote Johnny McGuire’s current single, “100 MPH.”
Sikes says, “I’m really happy to be continuing this journey with my family at Endurance. They are driven, hardworking, and forward-thinking, all while maintaining a culture of integrity and fairness. I’m just so thankful I get to write songs for a company that’s made up of people that believe in me the way I believe in them. That’s tough to beat.”
“I met Paul back when I was with Extreme Writers Group, and it didn’t take long to recognize how talented a musician and a young writer he was,” says Endurance Music Group president Michael Martin. “And now he’s a triple threat as a hit songwriter, in-demand producer and touring musician. Everyone at Endurance loves working with Paul and we all are very excited to continue our journey together.”
Sikes joined Endurance in January 2020 with the company’s acquisition of the Wide Open Music Group catalog. A talented guitarist, he has toured with Allen, Stell, Billy Ray Cyrus and more.
