AWAL, Kolbalt Music’s recording company, announced on Wednesday (Oct. 3) that singer-songwriter Kevin Garrett has inked a worldwide deal. With the deal, Garrett will be offered a full range of services that include global marketing and distribution, licensing campaign coordination and more.
Garrett released his debut EP, Mellow Drama, in 2015 to critical acclaim. In 2016 the singer-songwriter was notably nominated for a Grammy award for co-writing and producing “Pray You Catch Me” from Beyoncé‘s Lemonade.
“It’s been amazing to watch Kevin grow his career from a songwriter and producer to artist,” said AWAL CEO Lonny Olinick. “He’s already shared stages with Mumford & Sons, X Ambassadors, Alessia Cara, Oh Wonder and more, establishing himself as an artist on the rise. We couldn’t be more excited to support his rapid growth and welcome him to the AWAL family.”
Garrett added, “I’m excited to join the AWAL family. Being an independent artist has given me a lot of creative freedom and a perspective that really aligns with AWAL’s mission. I couldn’t be happier and more grateful to partner with them.”
Garrett is also signed to Jay-Z‘s ROCNATION for publishing.
