Combustion Music has signed Tom Whall to an exclusive publishing deal in partnership with Jameson Rodgers.
Since moving to Nashville in 2011, Whall has been an internationally touring drummer and is currently on the road with Rodgers. As a multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter, Whall has had cuts with Emily Earle, Charlie Berry and more.
“Tom is a phenomenal musician and songwriter and I’m proud to not only have him in my band but to help his songwriting career take off as well. His work ethic paired with this team is going to set him up for a lot of success,” Rodgers says.
“As a writer/producer, I’ve always looked up to the Combustion team and Jameson,” Whall adds. “I’m super pumped to be a part of this killer team!”
Whall is the first signing on Combustion’s venture with Rodgers, whose songwriter career began with Combustion in 2014. The Platinum singer-songwriter has since celebrated two No. 1 songs as an artist such as “Some Girls” and “Cold Beer Calling My Name,” the latter of which he co-penned, as well as several hit songs as a songwriter with Chris Lane, Luke Combs, and Jason Aldean.
“Our creative strategy is based on organic relationships. When Tom connected with Jameson in the writer room, we knew he needed to be the first signing to our new venture,” says Combustion Vice President, Chris Van Belkom.
Chris Farren, Combustion Music President, sums, “Couldn’t be happier to be both signing Tom and partnering with Jameson on this deal…two guys of huge talent and character. Looking forward to a long, fruitful relationship together.”
