Warner’s Atlantic Records in the US has announced a new partnership with Big Yellow Dog Music. It will see the Nashville-based independent music publishing company move into actively releasing recordings, starting with a single from singer-songwriter Brynn Elliott.

“I’ve been friendly with [BYD co-owners] Carla [Wallace] and Kerry [O’Neill] for a while and have always been impressed by their taste, sincerity, and successful early bets on creative talent who have gone on to incredible long-term careers”, says Atlantic President of A&R Pete Ganbarg.

“The more we spoke about it, the more it seemed like a no-brainer to partner up”, he continues. “And the fact that literally one day after our deal closed, Carla heard Brynn’s music for the first time is such incredible synchronicity that we couldn’t have made it up if we tried. Brynn is a world-class talent who is just beginning to scratch the surface of what’s to come. All of us at Atlantic are THRILLED to be working with both Brynn and Big Yellow Dog”.

The there mentioned Wallace adds: “We couldn’t be happier to join with such a legendary label, and most importantly, to be able to work with Atlantic’s powerful team of highly innovative music lovers. I’m delighted to be collaborating with Pete after all these years of friendship. I couldn’t imagine starting this deal any other way than coming out of the gate with such an inspiring artist as Brynn Elliott”.

Elliott’s new single, ‘Time Of Our Lives’, is out today, ahead of an EP of the same name later this year.
