“The heart of what we do all boils down to songwriting; we know that very well, even just doing this for a short time,” says The Castellows. “Not only is it the heart of what we do, in many ways, it is also the most personal. We knew that our publisher really had to resonate with who we are as writers, but also as people. It is an understatement to say that everyone at Warner Chappell does only that. We are so thankful for Ben Vaughn, Bryce Sherlow and the entire team for supporting us and helping us be the best writers we can be because, at the end of the day, it’s all about the songs!”
