Provident Label Group/Sony Music has announced the signing of multi-award winning artist, songwriter, author and well-known storyteller Matthew West to their roster. In conjunction with their new partnership is the newly-created imprint Story House Music, which mirrors West's management company, Story House Collective. With support from Provident, West will develop and launch young artists' careers through the new imprint. 

With the unique ability to create life-changing music connecting with all ages since his first album released 16 years ago, West's career also entails numerous accolades and record-breaking No 1 songs. He has received four GRAMMY® nominations, a Dove Award, a K-LOVE Fan Award (which he's hosted the annual awards show four times and is set to host again this year), a Billboard Music Award, an American Music Award, and multiple ASCAP Christian Music Songwriter/Artist of the Year Awards. He has 15 No. 1 songs to his name, including "Broken Things," "Grace Wins," RIAA®-certified Platinum single "The Motions," and the RIAA-certified Gold single "Hello, My Name Is," which broke the record for longest stretch at No. 1 for 17 weeks. West also has more than 130 published songwriting cuts, including credits for artists such as Rascal Flatts, Scotty McCreery, Casting Crowns, Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Mandisa and more.  

"I am beyond excited for the opportunity to partner with my friends at Provident," Matthew West shared recently. "I've admired from afar the work they have done on behalf of so many artists, and I am humbled by their belief in the music I make and the vision I have to help champion the storytellers of the future. Much of my career could be boiled down to one word, 'story.' I'm passionate about the power of story and how music can impact the stories of peoples' lives on a deep level. In many ways, this new season with a new team marks a new chapter in my own story, and I can't wait to dive in."  

Terry Hemmings, President/CEO of Provident Label Group/Sony Music, is thrilled to have West join the stellar roster of artists, stating, "For years we have observed Matthew's amazing career. He's such a wildly talented artist and performer whose talent is evident in various forums as a musician and entertainer. He connects with audiences because he knows how to clearly and passionately share a story through song. We could not be more pleased to have Matthew join our PLG family and are anxious to forge ahead and see what stories unfold."
