Nashville Office

Started in June 1999, this new division of The Brumley Music group began with the placement of Mike Porter in the position of V.P. Creative/Writer development. Mike has been assigned the task of developing and exploiting the existing cataloge of Gospel favorites, including the songs of the legendary Hall of Fame songwriter Albert E. Brumley. Additionaly Mike is going to build the cataloge through signing writers, acquiring songs and cataloges, and exploiting these new copyrights into all markets, including Film and Television, Country and Pop recordings and other new uses.

The Nashville office has signed Mila Mason, former Atlantic records artist, to a publishing and production agreement.  Noted Nashville producer Mike Clute (Diamond Rio, Blackhawk) has just completed recording several new songs by Mila and Brumley Music's other new writer Nick Pellegrino.  These songs are scheduled to hit the airwaves and record stores sometime next spring.
