Acclaimed songwriter/artist Mat Kearney has signed to Big Loud Mountain Management, home to superstars Florida Georgia Line and breakout artists like Chris Lane and Dallas Smith.
Kearney, a born troubadour whose unique blend of hip-hop, adult alternative, and spiritually-based songwriting have won him a dedicated fanbase over his 10 year career, began his journey in the coffeehouses of California before moving to Nashville, where he now makes his home. With signing to BLM and new music already in the works, Kearney will step out as an independent artist and welcomes this change.
“Big Loud is an exciting place to be. Great people with big ideas,” said Kearney. “After being on major label for 10 years I felt a strong need to start this journey together as an independent artist. It has been so inspiring, and I feel lucky to have such a world class team down the street.”
Big Loud Mountain partner Seth England said of the signing, “after our first meeting with Mat, we knew we had to officially work together. I’ve always respected Mat’s career from a distance all these years. We couldn’t be more excited to join his team. We’ve had the pleasure to hear what Mat is working on next and I can confidently say the best is yet to come for him.”
His current record, Just Kids (released in February 2015), became his fourth-consecutive Top 5 release on the Billboard Christian Albums chart. AbsolutePunk raved, “If Just Kids proves anything, it is that Kearney is still crafting albums that are unrelenting in their charisma.” The prolific writer has also contributed songs to dozens of television shows and movies, including Friday Night Lights, Parenthood, and 2011’s Soul Surfer.
Kearney recently wrapped his run on the COMPADRES 2016 Tour, presented by Needtobreathe, alongside John Mark McMillan, Parachute, and Weshly Arms.
