Concord Music Publishing has signed Nashville-based singer-songwriter Colton Venner to his first ever publishing contract. The worldwide publishing agreement includes Venner’s full catalog and future works.
A Fort Worth, Texas native, Venner draws inspiration from the likes of Chris Knight and legends like Johnny Cash, harnessing attention to detail when playing out a story within his songs.
“Signing a publishing deal is a lifelong dream come true! However, signing with the Concord team is so much better than I could have ever hoped for or imagined. I’m so excited to see what’s next,” Venner shares.
In addition to his songwriting career, he also releases music independently. His breakout 2019 single “Honey Slow,” with over 1.5 million streams on Spotify alone, showcases his songwriting talents blending country and Americana for an acoustic-guitar driven sound.
“We are honored that Colton has chosen our team to partner with him creatively,” says Melissa Spillman, VP A&R at Concord Music Publishing, Nashville. “It was evident from his first song I heard that he is an incredible writer who will leave his stamp on our town. I’m excited for the rest of our community to get to know Colton and his songs, and we look forward to many successes together!”
