Centricity Music, the No. 1 Billboard Top Christian Albums Imprint for the third consecutive year, has signed the five-time GRAMMY®-nominated, eight-time Dove Award-winning Brandon Heath to an exclusive, worldwide recording and publishing contract.
"The Centricity team feels like the perfect partner for me right now," says Heath. "Their fearlessness and nimble spirit free me up to be creative. The music's never been better and it feels like I've landed in the right place."
"It's such a privilege to have someone of Brandon's stature join our team," says Steve Ford, Centricity Music General Manager. "He brings years of history, experience, and relationships with him. We love the music Brandon is writing, the heart he has for his fans, and that he is a really good guy."
"We are so excited to have Brandon join the Centricity Publishing team," adds Chad Segura, Centricity Music VP of Publishing. "I'm a big fan of him both as a talent and as a human being. He is an exceptional artist and songwriter, and I can't wait to see what we can do together in this next season."
A Nashville native, Heath quickly won the hearts of listeners when he released his major-label debut in 2006. Along with his GRAMMY nominations, an American Music Award nod, and an Emmy Award, Heath has three Billboard No. 1 singles to his credit, including "I'm Not Who I Was," "Your Love" and the RIAA Platinum-certified "Give Me Your Eyes." His eight Dove Awards include two consecutive Male Vocalist honors (2009, 2010) and a win for Song of the Year ("Give Me Your Eyes"). He has also been recognized as a top lyricist in his field with numerous songwriting accolades, including being named BMI's 2014 Songwriter of the Year.
Heath's artistry and ability to connect with audiences have compelled wide media coverage across the nation to platform his story and music. Highlights include coverage in The New York Times, Billboard, People, The Wall Street Journal, Relevant, CBS Evening News, The Discovery Channel, and as a presenter on the 54th Annual GRAMMY® Awards.
