David Massey added, “We are so happy to be partnering with our friends at Sony/ATV to sign Scott Harris, one the most talented, prolific and versatile songwriters in our business. Additionally, we are excited to work with Scott’s longtime manager Zach Gurka, to help bring Scott’s remarkable career to even greater heights globally.”
