Sony signs Moon
Friday, July 19, 2019
– Sony Music Nashville signed Niko Moon, who has written songs for the Zac Brown Band, to the RCA Nashville imprint,.
The label put out "Good Time" and "Drunk Over You," two tracks available now from his forthcoming debut EP.
"I'm so excited to be announcing my partnership with Sony/RCA, CAA and Make Wake/River House today," said Moon. "Their reputations speak for themselves, and their belief in me is truly humbling. I believe that a person is only as strong as the people they surround themselves with, and with this team the sky is the limit."
Due to release later this year, his debut EP will consist of music co-written and co-produced by Moon. The music pairs Atlanta-bred hip-hop and rural-fed traditional country. Moon is a longtime collaborator with fellow Georgian Brown and is credited on five number one Zac Brown Band hits: "Loving You Easy," "Homegrown," "Beautiful Drug" and "Keep Me In Mind" - plus "Heavy Is The Head," which topped the rock charts with Chris Cornell singing lead. He also co-wrote Rascal Flatts' hit, "Back To Life."
A Texas native who relocated to Douglasville, Ga. at age 10. "Good Times" was co-written by Moon, Anna Moon and Josh Murty and "Drunk Over Me," by the same three co-writers in addition to Jordan Minton and Mark Trussell.
