Curb | Word Music Publishing has signed singer-songwriter Rotundo to its publishing roster.
An Ohio native, Rotundo grew up singing and playing piano as a hobby. After graduation from high school, he joined the U.S. Army where he served for four years on active duty. Still enthralled with music, Rotundo taught himself guitar and moved to Nashville in 2019.
He soon joined the duo After Midtown, during which time he opened for artists like Florida Georgia Line, Hardy, Billy Currington, Kip Moore, Mitchell Tenpenny and more. Now, Rotundo has focused his creative output to pursue his country singer-songwriter solo career.
He will release his debut heartbreak single, “Break Even,” on Friday (Oct. 27). The tune was co-written by Curb | Word Music Publishing’s Brian Bunn and Rose Falcon.
“I’m someone that gets beautifully lost in the art of songwriting. I love writing songs that make you feel something,” shares Rotundo. “I grew up on my grandparents’ farm and at my family’s house in a smalltown suburb. I feel like you can truly hear both of those influences in my music. I relate to the storytelling of country music, and at the same time, very modern and atmospheric production.”
“We are thrilled to welcome Rotundo, who brings with him a relentlessly positive collaborative energy and work ethic, to the Curb | Word family,” shares Senior Creative Director, Country Publishing, Sarah Schumacher. “We look forward to supporting him in achieving his songwriting goals as he launches his exciting solo artist career.”
