Since moving to Nashville, Archer has become a well-known name in the songwriting community and is poised to have a breakout year.

MV2’s roster of writers includes Thomas Archer, Nick Donley, Jimmie Deeghan, Eric Dodd, Clay Mills, Robert Arthur and artist Nora Collins.

Hard Rock Label Eleven Seven Music Launches Nashville Venture With Flagship Artist Cory Marks

Cory Marks

Cory Marks has signed a multi-album record and publishing deal with newly-launched Eleven Seven Nashville, the Music City office of New York-based rock label Eleven Seven Music. Headed by Allen Kovac, Eleven Seven works with acts including Mötley Crüe, Five Finger Death Punch, All That Remains, Bad Wolves, and Papa Roach.

Marks, a native of North Bay, Ontario, has been writing and recording with rock producer Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch, Disturbed) over the past two years to create a brand of amped-up country music.

Originating after a night spent at a bar with some buddies playing cover songs of Vince Gill and Merle Haggard hits, Marks was encouraged to pursue music. He began writing songs and performing across Canada and opening for artists including Brantley Gilbert, Marty Stuart, Toby Keith and more. That led to his signing with Eleven Seven Music.

Eleven Seven launched in 2006. The full-service label was named Billboard‘s Rock Label of the Year in 2010. In 2015, Papa Roach’s F.E.A.R. debuted at No. 15 on the Top 200 and the band’s 2017 release, Crooked Teeth, debuted at No. 1 on the Hard Rock album chart, with their single “Help” spending six weeks atop the rock radio chart. In August, another of the label’s artists, Bad Wolves, celebrated their song “Zombie” being certified Platinum by the RIAA.
