BMG/BBR Music Group have announced the signing of multi-national band King Calaway to their ever growing roster which currently has a high calibre list of artists such as; Dustin Lynch, Jimmie Allen, Lainey Wilson, Chase Rice, Lindsay Ell, Walker McGuire, our very own Twinnie and much more.
King Calaway self-titled debut EP will be released January 25th via BBR’s Stoney Creek Records imprint.
King Calaway consist of; Caleb Miller, Chris Deaton, Simon Dumas, Jordan Harvey, Chad Michael Jervis, and Austin Luther and they formed the band in early 2018.
King Calaway are said to be a great new vocal group who will bring something a little different to country music. We can’t wait to hear what they have been working on.
Guided by a co-production team including creative visionaries Robert Deaton and Ross Copperman, the group’s highly-anticipated debut project is coming in early 2019.
“King Calaway is that rare combination of incredible individual talent combined with amazing group chemistry,” says Jon Loba, EVP/BBR Music Group. “Their skill as musicians, vocalists and entertainers, along with Robert Deaton and Ross Copperman’s creative vision has very quickly fueled the passions and excitement of not only those of us in the BBR Music Group but also BMG and Bertelsmann globally. We can’t wait to introduce them to partners and audiences around the world!”
“The six musicians who make up King Calaway are a fresh take on contemporary country music,” adds Robert Deaton. “These young men hail from all corners of the globe, but when put together on a stage, they are one and magic happens.”
King Calaway haven’t even released any music yet and will make their Grand Ole Opry stage debut on Friday, March 1st. It could be safe to say that the band are destined for great things.
“The six of us are beyond excited to be working with the great teams at BMG and BBR. They’ve already dedicated so much time and effort into this project, and we’re incredibly grateful,” noted King Calaway’s Chad Michael Jervis. “We’re ready for the world to hear all the songs we’ve worked so hard on.”
