Singer-songwriter Ben Goldsmith debuted a new track, “Flowers In Your Hair,” and announced his signing to Sony Music Nashville, UTA and Universal Music Publishing Group Nashville. Goldsmith, then 16 and with no social media following, was offered a deal on the spot after performing for Sony Music Nashville executives. In his agreement with Universal Music Publishing Nashville, Goldsmith was signed to an exclusive, global publishing deal.
Additionally, after a solo showcase at Live Nation in Nashville this year, Goldsmith was offered a slot at Bonnaroo on Saturday, June 17. This performance will take place just 7 days after he graduates from high school.
“Flowers In Your Hair” will be part of Goldsmith’s 15-track, debut album The World Between My Ears releasing September 22. The project is a result of the singer traveling back and forth to Nashville during the covid years to write songs, create his own sound, and woodshed in the studio with Brad Jones (Hayes Carll, Chuck Prophet, Ron Sexsmith), who he co-produced the project with. The result is a broad, melody driven and soulful musical palette. Pre-order/save The World Between My Ears HERE.
