Sheltered Music has signed songwriter Ben Daniel to a publishing deal through a joint venture with producer Dann Huff.
Daniel got his start in songwriting learning from mentor Jeff Carlton, whose expertise steered multiple companies to chart-topping success. He then signed his first publishing deal with producer Byron Gallimore.
He draws from his small-town roots of back pews and back roads, and mixes them with his musical skills. That mixture has led to cuts with country talent including Jake Owen, Brett Eldredge, Tyler Farr, Josh Turner, Parmalee and more.
“When I first met Ben, he was performing solo guitar and I was immediately struck by his incredible musicality,” Huff shares. “After we got talking, I asked to hear some of his music. He gave me a few CDs and I immediately fell in love with his writing! I’m so excited that he wants to work with us. He is a big talent and a soulful person.”
“In my 20-plus years of working with Dann Huff, he’s only raised his hand to say he has a writer he wanted me to sign twice. Ben Daniel is that second writer. It was obvious when I heard the music why we needed to make this happen,” says Sheltered Music Senior Vice President of Creative Darrell Franklin.
“I’m blessed to get to work with such a great team!” Daniel exclaims. “Thanks to Dann Huff for believing in me and sharing my music with the team at Sheltered [Music]. I know this is gonna be a killer ride. Sheltered has a great roster and I’m so honored to be a part of it!”
