Leading independent music publisher Big Machine Music, a subsidiary of HYBE America, and GRAMMY®-nominated songwriter/producer King Henry announced today the signing of Pop singer/songwriter Dalton Mauldin to an exclusive songwriting agreement in a joint music publishing deal. The Lake City, Florida native is on the road performing solo acoustic shows including a stop in Nashville at Third and Home on June 1 ahead of two nights at First Horizon Park June 2 and 3 as a member of the world-renowned Savannah Bananas baseball team. Mauldin is already readying new music including new song “miss you, love you” co-written alongside BMM songwriter Daniel Ross and produced by King Henry, arriving May 19.
“When King Henry and Big Machine Music’s Senior Director of Publishing Timmy Haehl, first introduced us to Dalton, we immediately felt the star wattage,” said Mike Molinar, BMM’s General Manager. “I’m so grateful for Henry’s belief in us as partners and Dalton’s trust in taking the next step of his career.”
“Dalton is one of the most genuine, positive and good-hearted humans I’ve ever met,” adds King Henry. “From the moment he first messaged me on social media and sent songs that matched the caliber of his personality, I knew we were going to build something special together. I’m excited to watch him grow in his artistry and am thrilled to be partnering with Big Machine Music for the journey.”
“I couldn’t be happier to be part of the Big Machine Music family and to work with King Henry,” shared Mauldin. “Getting to know everyone on the team has really made me feel at home. I’m so excited to continue to progress as a songwriter surrounded by such a talented community.”
