Singer-songwriter Roman Alexander has signed a global publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music and Twelve6 Entertainment. 

A Missouri native, Alexander moved to Nashville to pursue music shortly after high school graduation. In 2020, he released his first EP, Between You And Me, which featured the single “Cocktail Conversations” that amassed over seven million streams. A year later, he was named one of Spotify’s Hot Country Artists to Watch and went on to release multiple singles, including “Missouri On My Mind” and “She Was Mine” from his latest EP, Songs From A Breakup, which helped him rack up over 76 million global streams.

Alexander is currently one of the longest-running independent artists on Spotify’s Hot Country playlist, and the rising country star’s single “Between You & Me” with Ashley Cooke has garnered over 31 million streams on Spotify alone and reached the top 10 on Rolling Stone’s Trending 25 chart. Alexander has collaborated with Jared Keim, Jerry Flowers and more, and co-wrote “Party Mode” with Dustin Lynch. Additionally, he’s opened for Sam Hunt, Old Dominion and Billy Currington, among others.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Roman over the past five years and watched him develop into an artist and a man worthy of the career he so tirelessly pursues,” says Travis Myatt, President & General Manager, Twelve 6 Entertainment. “Roman’s talent and work ethic exceed each other, and with our new partners at WCM adding a lens of focus to his writing, Roman is poised for great successes in the coming months.”

Alexander is managed by Melanie Wetherbee of Red Light Management.
