Red Door Music Group has celebrated a great deal of achievements since its founding in 2020. Now they’re adding the announcement of two new signings.
In partnership with its joint-venture partner, Warner Chappell Music, the publishing house has inked a new deal with ASCAP songwriter Mike Walker. A Belmont graduate, he has had releases with such artists as Luke Bryan, Chase Rice, Morgan Wallen, Ryan Hurd, Lee Brice and more.
Abbey Adams, GM and Senior Vice President of Red Door Music Group, says, “I have been a fan of Mike’s writing for years. I always loved his voice, but I have especially come to appreciate his craft in writing lyrics. I am super excited to be working with him. I think Mike will be a writer we’ll still be talking about generations from now.”
Also joining the Red Door Music Group/Warner Chappell Music family is BMI songwriter Kenton Bryant. A Kentucky native, he came to Nashville eager to learn the craft of songwriting from the best Music City has to offer.
“I was blessed to have the best mentor a young songwriter in Nashville could ask for: Jonathan Singleton. I learned the value of a great song, what it takes to be a studio musician, and most importantly, how working hard pays off,” Bryant shares. “I’m forever grateful for those lessons and proud to be able to call him one of my best friends and someone I’ll always be excited to share my music with.”
Rian Ball, RDMG’s first signing, is celebrating two of his penned songs being released by K-Pop artists in 2021, including “Amnesia” by Kai and “Supplier” by Super Junior D&E. Additionally, Jimmie Allen‘s newest single, “Down Home,” is Ball’s first country radio single. Co-written with Allen, Tate Howell and Cameron Bedell, this song is a heart-felt tribute to Allen’s late father. Ball is also one of the three songwriters in The Boat Boys, along with Holden James and Zack Dyer, who are on tour this spring with Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line.
Additionally, RDMG’s Gina Venier recently released her eighth single through Red Door Music Group/Warner Chappell Music. The song “Nora Jane” tells the true story of Venier’s journey of coming out to her family.
“I feel like people can relate to me when I feel nervous about bringing a girl home to my family. I’ve had people come up to me after I sing it live and say things like, ‘I have a Nora Jane’–and they have a story of their own to tell,” Venier explains. “It feels good knowing that people feel like I am telling their own story too.”
