Jake Scott has signed a global publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music.
Scott has penned hits for dozens of artists and has racked up over 500 million global streams in addition to averaging over three million monthly listeners on Spotify alone with his own songs, such as “Like No One Does,” “Tuesdays,” and “Favorite T-Shirt.” His most recent single, “Texas Girl,” a love song for his wife Rachel, marks his first major label release with Elektra Records.
Katy Wolaver, Senior Vice President, A&R, WCM notes: “As a songwriter, Jake has the perfect creative blend of heartfelt penmanship and relentless work ethic, which are key to being successful in this industry. He has created a strong catalog in a short amount of time, and we couldn’t be more pleased to be in business with him as his career is primed to take off.”
A Fayetteville, Arkansas native who is based in Los Angeles, Scott has written for Jason Mraz, Aloe Blacc, Morgan Wallen, Ben Rector and Carrie Underwood. As an artist, he dropped one song per month from the beginning of 2018 until the end of 2020, and sold out his very first headline tour. Scott opened up Lany’s 2021 fall tour and just kicked off 2022 with a 21-date headlining trek across North America.
“As I’ve followed Jake’s career, I’ve been blown away by the special connection he’s made with his fans through vulnerable lyrics and ability to relay the human experience through his music,” Spencer Nohe, Senior Director, A&R, WCM Nashville shares. “We’re looking forward to amplifying his voice and helping him elevate to the next level of his promising career.”
“The moment I wrote my first song I knew it was all I ever wanted to do,” Scott adds. “I still wake up most days and can’t believe music is my job. It’s a dream come true to say the least. And as anyone in this business will tell you–Warner Chappell is the best of the best. They’re the songwriting family I’ve always wanted to be part of, and that day is finally here. Another dream come true. I’m honored and excited to partner with Warner Chappell and can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
