Music industry veteran Will Ward has officially launched Fourward Records in Nashville.
The company has already completed a number of signings, which include 18-year old folk pop-artist, Brenn!, in partnership with Justin Lubliner’s Darkroom, as well as indie-rock group Sarah and the Sundays in partnership with AWAL.
Joey McCarthy serves as Head of Music at Fourward. In addition to the label, he oversees the company’s Nashville-based publishing division which launched in November of 2019. Fourward’s publishing division has a global administration deal with Reservoir Media and its current writer roster includes Andrew Stoelzing and Mike Robinson.
McCarthy also oversees the company’s artist management division, which oversees the careers of Max Drazen and DJ/producer/engineer Aaron Hibell.
Ward tells MusicRow, “I am very excited to launch Fourward Records, and incredibly excited about our first artists, Sarah and the Sundays and Brenn! I’m particularly proud that both albums were recorded in Nashville with Nashville-based producers. Even better that Brenn! is recording with our very own, Mike Robinson.”
