Josh Gruss, founder and CEO of Round Hill Music, said: “It’s a pleasure to have these fine gentlemen of songwriting prowess join the family at Round Hill Music. Marti has been my friend and partner at Sienna recording studios for many years now and it’s great to bring him even closer into the organisation. Blair, Scott and Zac are amazing writers especially in the rock category and the four of them together make a killer, go-to songwriting unit, with production chops to boot, and to weave them in with all the great artists we have at our record labels will surely result in great synergy. It’s amazing to announce this along with an active rock No.1 for the partnership.”
