AWAL SIGNS RISING COUNTRY ARTIST, AUSTIN BURKE
7/12/18

 AWAL, Kobalt's recording company, has signed a worldwide recordings deal with country artist, Austin Burke. AWAL's partnership with Burke began with global distribution services then progressed after the success of his self-titled EP, which saw more than 50 million streams. 

Based in Nashville, Austin Burke released his self-titled EP in 2017. His songs, "Whole Lot in Love" and "Sleepin' Around," have been featured on Spotify's Hot Country, Apple Music's Breaking Country, Amazon Music's Introducing: Country and received support on Sirius XM's The Highway.

Ron Cerrito, AWAL President, North America said of the deal, "We couldn't be more excited to continue our partnership with Austin. We've watched him steadily gain momentum in the country music community and look forward to continued collaboration on his growth path as an independent artist."

Burke is currently touring the US this summer and will be releasing an acoustic version of "Whole Lot in Love" later this month with plans to release new music before the end of the year.
