ECEG Records signs a recording/publishing agreement with CORD (02/08/2006)
SANTA CRUZ, Calif. – Emerald City Entertainment Group (emeraldcityeg.com) today announced the signing of a recording/publishing agreement with CORD (cordmusic.com), one of the leading rock bands from Austin, Texas. Dubbed “one of the top 5 homegrown rock bands of Austin” by 101X KROX, CORD brings a memorably distinctive pop rock sound to the Emerald City catalog.
Twenty-five year old Cord Carpenter, the band’s front-man and singer/songwriter, brings a repertoire of more than 75 original songs to the ECEG Music Publishing Company catalog. While Carpenter’s southern-influenced songwriting is often compared to the likes of Jakob Dylan (Wallflowers), Chris Martin (Coldplay), and Dave Groll (Foo Fighters), his inspirations span the gamut from Jackson Browne to Neil Young, The Who to Iain Anderson, and Bruce Hornsby to Johnny Cash.
ECEG Records and CORD will select an initial ten songs from his repertoire which will be produced into a full-length release by Daniel Duerr and Rich Williams at the company’s recording studio in Santa Cruz, California during February/March, 2006. The album will be released digitally in the spring 2006 with distribution through IODA (iodalliance.com), followed by a physical release in late summer/fall 2006 with distribution through Bayside Entertainment Distribution (baysidedist.com).
