(New York, NY) – Award winning songwriter Kylie Sackley has signed a worldwide publishing deal with Razor & Tie Music Publishing through a joint venture deal with Little Extra Music, which is owned and operated by industry veteran Lisa Ramsey Perkins. The Australian based writer has penned songs for Leann Rimes, Faith Hill, Thompson Square, John Rich, Lee Brice and Jodee Messina.
Kylie Sackley comments, “When two of Nashville’s strongest, smartest, most fabulous firecrackers ask you to sign a publishing deal, you say – hell yes!!! I could say I’m excited to be working with Razor & Tie/Little Extra Music – but it’s so much bigger than that.”
Lisa Ramsey Perkins and Razor & Tie’s Lisa Johnson add, “Kylie Sackley is a hit songwriting, cigar smoking, whiskey sipping bad ass! Her work ethic is intense, and something to be admired. We couldn’t be more excited to have her join our respective publishing companies in this joint venture!”
For songwriter Kylie Sackley, it’s always been about the songs first. As a wunderkind performer in her birthplace of Australia, Kylie dazzled audiences with her authentic grasp of country, her gorgeously expressive vocals, and her electrifying stage presence. When she won Australia’s most prestigious country music talent search, Star Maker (Keith Urban was a previous winner), she made the fateful decision to go the route of being a professional songwriter, and she hasn’t looked back since. Kylie’s first year on the Nashville scene was astounding. That year she co-wrote Leann Rimes country comeback smash “Nothin’ ‘bout Love Makes Sense” with highly sought after writers Gary Burr and Joel Feeney. That track, and her next co-write—Faith Hill’s “Sunshine and Summertime”—went to the Top 5. Kylie went on to co-wrote Troy Cassar Daley’s “The Sunshine Club,” Alan Jackson’s “It’s Just That Way,” and recently she co-wrote the track “Young In America” recorded by Danielle Bradbery (the 2013 US winner of reality TV show, The Voice). Recently, Kylie has been nominated for the APRA (Australian performing rights association) “Breakthrough Songwriter Of The Year” award.
