Patrick Mayberry Signs With Centricity Music

Patrick Mayberry has signed with Centricity Music and released new single, “Breakthrough Miracle Power,” to radio and digitally on Friday (12/11).

Signed to the publishing wing of the company, Centricity Publishing, in 2018, Mayberry has had cuts by North Point Worship, David Leonard, Mack Brock, Chris Renzema, David Dunn, Jonny Diaz, Joel Vaughn and others, and his songs have also garnered major sync placements with T-Mobile, NBA, NBC TODAY and more.

“Patrick has a unique ability to express his heart through his songs in such a powerful way,” says James Duke, Centricity Music Director of A&R. “His music is full of hope and passion, and I’m thrilled that Centricity Music has the privilege of sharing these songs with the world.”

Mayberry says of “Breakthrough Miracle Power”: “It started on my own, and it was super personal. It’s essentially a desperate song of when your back’s against the wall and there’s no way out, and ultimately, you’re just desperate for the Lord to show up.

“I feel like I’m getting to put the flag in the moon, because to me, it’s not just this song; it’s the last 10 years of traveling back and forth to Franklin, TN from Chicago, staying up way too late working on demos, and being a grumpy dad in the morning. There’s been a lot of sweat equity, and this song is kind of the Ebenezer that marks the start of something really beautiful that’s come from all of that.”

Season 2 Of The Song Returning In January

Nationally syndicated television series The Song–Recorded Live @ TGL Farms will return Jan. 2, 2021 with 15 new episodes. The one-hour season opener features Train, Jason Mraz, Jewel, Richard Marx, Clint Black, Gavin DeGraw and a special Marley Family Celebration Of “One Love” with Stephen Marley.

“Although challenging, this season’s filming actually presented us with a unique opportunity to take the show to the artists and record them where they were most comfortable–in or near their own homes–and they all brought their A-Game,” said the show’s creator and Executive Producer Marc Oswald.

Returning hosts Krista Marie and Damien Horne traveled coast to coast—having coffee with Jason Mraz at the Mraz Family Farm, sipping wine with Pat Monahan of Train at Concannon Vineyard in Northern California, riding horses with Jewel in the Colorado Rockies, and filming Richard Marx as he performed at sunset in Malibu. Shooting wrapped where it all began, with Gavin DeGraw at TGL Farms located near Nashville.

Founding partner Ally returns to present Season 2, as The Song welcomes new partners Harley-Davidson and KICKER Performance Audio to the team.

The show is produced by Oswald Entertainment Group and Tupelo Honey, directed by David “Doc” Abbott and mixed by Tom Davis. Cary Glotzer serves as executive producer.

Gray Television is managing the syndication reaching more than 77 percent of US households in over 140 markets.

AXS TV acquired all 10 episodes from Season 1, which will continue airing through 2022.

The Other Nashville Society Teams With German Publisher For Virtual Songwriting Camp

The Other Nashville Society (TONS), which promotes Nashville’s multi-genre talent, teamed with leading German publisher Budde Music for a week-long virtual songwriting camp.

Over 40 artists, writers, and producers from both scenes took part in the event. From the TONS camp were writers including Jim Jonsin (Beyoncé, Lil Wayne, Eminem), Nick Bailey (Maroon 5, Marshmello, Demi Lovato), Bailey Bryan (300 Entertainment), and Kyle Kelso (Kygo, Galantis, Lane 8). German collaborators included Steven Bashir (Felix Jaehn, Younotus , Lena), Kelvin Jones (Four Music / Sony), Robin Grubert (Nico Santos, Keri Hilson, Adel Tawil), and Conor Byrne (RCA / Sony).

In addition, major label execs from both sides of the Atlantic, including A&R from Epic Records, Warner Records, RCA Records, Capitol Records, Polydor Records, and Island Records, briefed the camp each morning on their artists’ current song needs.

Head of A&R, Prescription Songs Nashville / TONS Co-founder, Katie Fagan, said, “Our mission at TONS is to not only give a platform to our community of creators here in the U.S., but to help spread awareness across the globe that Nashville is a melting pot of successful multi-genre writers, producers and artists. When it came to international markets we wanted to connect with, Germany was at the top of our wishlist. Our friends at the Music Business Association (Music Biz) connected us to Germany’s top music business conference, Reeperbahn Festival. Through that connection, we met Peer Steinwald at Budde in Berlin. Very quickly, we all realized we were aligned on a camp, and within days we were making plans.”

Those plans for an in-person writing camp were altered due to the pandemic, so TONS and Budde shifted to a successful virtual event.
