Industry veteran Lisa Ramsey Perkins recently launched Little Extra Music, a full-service music publishing company based in Nashville, and has signed singer/songwriter Will Bowen. The signing of Bowen is a partnership with hit makers Tia Sillers, Erin Enderlin, Neil Zacharuk and their company 10,000 Hours Music.
“It’s an absolute dream to finally start my own publishing company,” said Perkins. “To have a writer as talented as Will Bowen to kick things off, and to have my first joint venture be with Tia, Erin & Neil is amazing! I am blessed to have had a long career in the Nashville music industry and have learned so much working for some great companies over the years. I look forward to using the experience I have gained in publishing, writer/artist development and A&R to build a successful company of my own.”
Bowen signed his first publishing deal while still a senior in high school, where he’d already recorded two independent albums. As an artist, he opened for Dave Matthews, Counting Crows, John Mayer, Maroon 5 and Train. With numerous cuts as a songwriter, Bowen reached platinum status internationally with a song on Latin pop star Soraya Arnelas‘ debut album (6x platinum). He also had a song on the American Grammy Nominated album from Tejano artist Rebecca Valadez. After the release of his third record, Love is War, he moved to Nashville in 2008 to focus on his songwriting. Bowen has recently had cuts by Casey James, Due West and others.
