Black River Publishing has signed multi-genre hitmaker Bryan Simpson.
Simpson has made his own records as a singer-songwriter with multiple Grammy winners Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and bluegrass giant Ricky Skaggs. He has also toured and recorded with British folk-rock band Mumford and Sons, and has penned several Billboard chart-topping hits such as Blake Shelton‘s “A Guy with a Girl,” Tim McGraw‘s “Better Than I Used to Be,” and Joe Nichols‘ “Yeah.”
“I’ve been a huge believer in Bryan and his songs for the better part of a decade,” Black River Vice President of Publishing, Rebekah Gordon notes. “His lyrics are compelling, his melodies fresh, and his artistry unmistakable. Bryan is a proven hitmaker, and I’m so thrilled that he is partnering with us at Black River for this next chapter of his career.”
“I’ve been paying attention to who seems to have that hunger to do something great down around Music Row,” Simpson adds. “Trying to sort out which companies embrace songwriters and songs and not just the parties and accolades. Black River kept coming to the forefront, with Rebekah Gordon leading the charge. It made being a part of what they’ve got going on a real no-brainer for me. I’m excited and grateful that the feeling was mutual.”
