SixForty1 has signed with Morris Higham Management and WME’s Aaron Tannenbaum for representation.
The pop-country duo comprised of Austin Gee and Brooks Hoffman have also individually inked respective publishing deals with Amped Entertainment and Toby & Molly Music.
Formed while attending Murray State University in Kentucky, the duo discovered they had immediate songwriting chemistry. After moving to Nashville in 2018, they soon gained attention from some of Nashville’s power players, including Aaron Keiser at Morris Higham Management and Tannenbaum.
The announcement on their new team follows SixForty1’s 2021 EP release, Started Right Here, which moved the duo’s streaming numbers into the multi-millions. SixForty1 has toured with Brantley Gilbert, Eli Young Band, Michael Ray, Walker Hayes, Niko Moon and Dustin Lynch, and are currently on the road with Tyler Rich on the “Two Thousand (more) Miles Tour.”
“It’s an honor to represent SixForty who are dedicated to their craft,” says Morris Higham Management’s Clint Higham. “Both Austin and Brooks are equally talented songwriters as they are performers. In a day of TikTok and instafamous moments, it’s refreshing to work with Brooks and Austin. They are the real long-term deal.”
“I am proud to be working with Aaron Keiser and Morris Higham Management to nurture what Brooks and Austin have already established with their unique songwriting and great live show,” says Tannenbaum.
“We are blessed with the opportunity to work with such an incredible team and we are excited to see where we take each other,” shares Gee and Hoffman. “The sky is truly the limit here.”
