Founding Lanco band member/songwriter Tripp Howell has signed a worldwide publishing agreement with Endurance Music Group and multi-Platinum artist/EMG songwriter Jimmie Allen.

A Dalton, Georgia native, Howell moved to Nashville in 2012 and formed Lanco shortly after. He has writing credit on numerous Lanco cuts, including the band’s singles “Rival” and “What I See.” A longtime collaborator with Allen, Howell co-wrote “Deserve to Be” from Allen’s debut record, Mercury Lane, Allen’s single “Big in a Small Town,” (which also serves as the theme song of the Netflix series Titletown High,) and “Settle On Back,” from Allen’s 2022 album, Tulip Drive.

“I met Tripp in 2016. We started writing together, and I knew he had a gift for songwriting,” shares Allen. “The way he approaches songs is a style all his own. Over the last few years, he has become a brother to me. Tripp is always in grind mode, always finding ways to deliver greatness, and that is the type of person I want to be around. I’m honored to be a part of his journey and have him as a part of mine. Tripp cares about people, and he cares about the song—those are two great qualities in a songwriter.”
