New USA Distribution/Licensing Deal Announced at MIDEM for Roots/Alt-Country’s KENNY BUTTERILL
Cannes, France (January 19, 2003) – No Bull Songs announced today that its Roots/Alt-Country songwriter/producer, Kenny Butterill, has secured a USA licensing and distribution agreement for his new “JUST A SONGWRITER” CD with Hayden’s Ferry Records. The CD will be distributed by City Hall Records.
The new USA agreement comes on the heels of No Bull Songs January 2003 release of the album’s first international single, “My Austin Angel,” which is already receiving significant airplay after debuting in the Top 30 in Europe.
Kenny Butterill is a not-so-hidden gem, whose music has charted globally since his debut release, “No One You Know”. That CD yielded the first Americana format single in two years to cross over and become a #1 Country hit in Europe in 2002. The much-anticipated follow up “JUST A SONGWRITER” album has caught the watchful eye of the industry and reviewers are already singing its praises.
Stu Baker, president of Hayden’s Ferry Records said, “We’re very pleased and proud that Kenny chose to release with us. He’s certainly carved himself a significant niche in the Roots/ Americana scene, and we were very familiar with his work and market appeal. His “JUST A SONGWRITER” CD is compelling, features poignant songwriting, magnificent musicianship, and great production! Although our USA release of the new Kenny Butterill CD isn’t until April, we’re excited to tell the world about it starting right now!”
