New label Silvercreek Records has opened offices on Music Row, located at 1010 B 16th Ave. S. in Nashville. Formed by Stafond Seago and Steve Pope, the new label has signed Eric Durrance and Tobacco Rd Band as the first artist on the roster. The deal includes shared publishing rights on many of Durrance’s songs, including the recent single “That’s Country,” featuring Colt Ford, and Jake Owen‘s “8 Second Ride,” co-written by Durrance.
A launch party and concert will be held Saturday, Sept. 21, at Honky Tonk Central (329 Broadway) from 9 pm. until midnight. Durrance and Tobacco Rd Band will perform beginning at 10 p.m., followed by an autograph session. Several signed guitars will be given away. The event is open to the public, ages 21 and over. No cover charge.
As a solo artist, Durrance opened for Lady Antebellum and Jason Aldean for “CMT on Tour” in 2008. Prior to that, he was lead singer with the Christian rock band Big Dismal. With Tobacco Rd Band, Durrance blends classic country with high-energy, hard-partying Southern rock.
Though a new label, Silvercreek began several years ago as a music publishing company and recording studio, which is still operating in Columbia, Miss., under the production and management of Kaleb Payne, VP of Mississippi operations. Seago is also active in the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) and is the NSAI chapter coordinator for the state of Mississippi; he also works with the Mississippi Songwriters Association.
Songwriter/producer/song plugger Pope, VP of Nashville Operations for Silvercreek Records, previously worked with Pride Music Group, Porter-Gentry Productions, Sunstone Music Group, Malaco Music Group, Web Four/Caliber Music, and Blue Steel Records.
