Emerging songwriter-producer Daniel Ross has signed an exclusive songwriting agreement with Big Machine Music and Tree Vibez Music.
The historic joint music publishing venture combines the heavyweight reputation of Big Machine Music and the inspirational focus of Tree Vibez Music, which was founded by Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard.
“Daniel’s music is current, commercial and shows an immense respect for the craft of songwriting,” says Mike Molinar, BMM General Manager. “I am incredibly honored to have him join our team of uniquely talented songwriters and equally excited to collaborate with our friends at Tree Vibez Music on this partnership.”
Both members of Florida Georgia Line take a hands-on approach with the songwriter signed to Tree Vibez Music. Ross will soon start to collaborate with some of the biggest artists in the genre.
FGL’s Tyler Hubbard notes, “BK and I knew from our first writing session that Tree Vibez Music would sign Daniel one day. There was energy and flow to his songwriting that we knew was fresh. And, to team up with Big Machine from the publishing side is different and really exciting for us!”
Newly appointed TVM General Manager, Leslie DiPiero adds, “We are thrilled to welcome Daniel into the family – and to further extend our family to this new partnership with the Big Machine Music team. This is going to be an incredible journey!”
Ross moved to Nashville following his graduation from Western Carolina University in 2015. He immersed himself in prominent songwriting circles before signing the new publishing deal.
“This is a dream crew to work with and I’m blown away that this is a reality for me,” says Ross. “I’ve never been more excited about creating music.”
