NO "JOKE": UMPG INKS BRANDI CARLILE

UMPG has inked a pub deal with acclaimed Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Brandi Carlile.

The House of Jody also signed Carlile collaborators and fellow Grammy winners Tim and Phil Hanseroth

Carlile has earned five Grammy Awards and been nominated for Song of the Year and Record of the Year (along with the Hanseroths) for “The Joke.” She also earned the Best Country Album Grammy for her work on Tanya Tucker’s album While I’m Livin’, and Best Country Song for Tucker’s “Bring My Flowers Now.”

“I’ve been a personal fan of Brandi Carlile’s for a long time," said pubbery boss Jody Gerson. "She is one of the best songwriters and storytellers of our generation. My first meeting with Brandi, Tim and Phil was unforgettable, one of the best “first dates” I’ve ever been on. I knew immediately that I wanted to work closely with them to bring their collective talents to an entirely new level. Along with my UMPG global team, we look forward to supporting their creative journeys and beautiful songs that are destined to last a lifetime.”

Added UMPG Nashville haead Troy Tomlinson, “Brandi, Tim and Phil have the natural ability to put into words the emotions we all feel, but find difficult to articulate. Their writing and Brandi’s music and voice are intimate and raw. Their talents will stand the test of time, and we are beyond honored to represent them.”

"I’ve been a Jody Gerson fangirl for years and I have great respect for the impact she’s made on women in music and leadership," reads a quote from Carlile. "I recently met the entire Universal Music team and was inspired to take my songwriting into uncharted territories knowing it’s in such capable hands. I have no words for how excited Tim, Phil and I are... but I’d damn well better get to writing some!”
