Artist manager Arthur Penhallow, Jr. formerly of Punch Enterprises and C3 Management has founded True Grit Management. Penhallow cut his teeth with Punch Andrews (Bob Seger and Kid Rock) for well over a decade. His roster includes Cody Jinks, Whitey Morgan, Ward Davis, Blue Water Highway, and Sunny Sweeney.
“Absolute dedication to the artist is the foundation at True Grit Management. The artists deserve that to say the least. They work tremendously hard and sacriﬁce everything they have for a career in music. It is my job to make sure they get paid and to professionally provide them with career expertise at every level,” commented Arthur Penhallow.
In addition to the Management company, Penhallow recently acquired Austin based booking agency CTK Entertainment, which will now be known as True Grit Talent Agency. Michael and Carrie Krug, along with the entire staﬀ and roster at CTK have joined the True Grit team.
“The True Grit companies will provide tremendous career expertise and innovation in touring, tour marketing, social media, data articulation, A&R, production, merchandising, publishing and a long list of other needs. I will continue to feverishly grow the companies on many diﬀerent levels, including roster growth, hiring and acquisitions. This is just the beginning of a very big vision,” commented Penhallow
True Grit artists Whitey Morgan, Cody Jinks & Blue Water Highway will release new albums in the ﬁrst half of 2018.
The True Grit Company Headquarters will be based in Austin, Texas.
