Jack Carty Signs To Music Sales
10th Oktober 2017
Jack Carty has signed a global music publishing deal with Embassy Music Publishing. This signing comes hot on the heels of the appointment by Managing Director, Jane English, of Larry Heath as the A&R Manager of the Music Sales Australia companies.
Carty’s story stands as testament to the power of great songs, great stories, grassroots determination and a spellbinding live show; cementing his reputation as a writer and performer of incredible depth and imagination. It’s been a big few years for the award winning, critically acclaimed Australian singer-songwriter. Following the release of four full-length albums and two EPs; extensive national and international touring; appearances at SXSW, Primavera and Canadian Music Week; co-writes with the likes of Dan Wilson (Adele, Taylor Swift, Semisonic), Josh Pyke & Katie Noonan; a national MusicOz award for Acoustic Singer-Songwriter of the year; and a biannual APRA Professional Development Award in the Popular Contemporary Category; Carty has recently relocated to the UK to write, release and tour from his base in the Cotswolds.
In the midst of all this, Carty decided to start his own label and release an album he produced, performed and recorded entirely himself in a tiny apartment in Brisbane’s Red Hill. The result was "Home State", one of Rhythms Magazine's Top 10 albums of 2016. It debuted at #1 on the AIR …Independent album chart and #36 on the ARIA Album Chart. Such was the stir the album caused on home soil that it was picked up for release in the UK by Gilded Lily/Absolute.
