Average Joes Entertainment artist Sam Grow and Deluge Music’s David Robkin have launched a joint venture, GrowHouse Publishing. Grow and Robkin also announced the company’s flagship signing, songwriter Danny Orton.
Brad Austin at Forward Music Management, who manages Grow, will work closely with the GrowHouse Publishing writers and team in an operations, coordinating and consulting role. The new company will focus on digital and streaming, as well as terrestrial and traditional media.
“Sam’s passion for songwriting is second to none and we are thrilled to partner with him on this venture,” shares Robkin. “I love his interest in working with veteran writers like Danny Orton and in developing new up and coming writers. Stay tuned!”
Orton has contributed to an array of country hits, including Dan + Shay‘s “19 You and Me,” Rascal Flatts‘ ”Stand,” and Emerson Drive‘s “Fall Into Me.” He’s also had cuts with Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Randy Travis, Lady A, Billy Ray Cyrus, Chicago and more. Orton was also credited as a co-writer and producer on Dan + Shay’s debut album.
”I’ve enjoyed all of the publishing deals that I’ve had, but I can honestly say that I’ve never been as excited as I am about signing with GrowHouse Publishing,” says Orton. “I can’t wait to dig in with Sam, David, Stephanie, Brad and the whole gang! They’re great and all of this just feels right!”
As an artist, Grow has amassed over 65 million streams on tracks such as “Song About You,” “The Blame,” “This Town,” and more. He’s been writing, performing and recording in Nashville for nearly a decade, and in November 2021 made his Grand Ole Opry debut.
“I am so grateful and thankful to have this opportunity to create GrowHouse Publishing in partnership with David Robkin and Deluge,” adds Grow. “Not only because David and Stephanie Greene are now giving me a chance to sign and fund songwriters in the pursuit of their dreams but also, I will get a world-class education from folks who have been doing that with writers for years.”
