Rising singer-songwriterCarter Faith has signed an Artist Development deal with Altadena, the multi-faceted music company founded by late hitmaker busbee (Maren Morris, Carly Pearce, Keith Urban). With financial backing and management services from Pound It Out Loud, an entertainment company founded by songwriter and producer Margaret Valentine, the artist development structure will allow Carter to maintain control of her recording and publishing assets while building her career with the Altadena and Pound It Out Loud teams. Carter released her first song, “Leaving Tennessee,” at the end of July, and it has quickly accrued over one million on-demand streams. Carter’s debut music video enjoyed an exclusive premiere on CMT alongside personal support from Leslie Fram. Her follow-up single, “Sinners in a Small Town,” will release Friday, Oct. 16, with a video following later in the month. Both songs were co-written by Carter, Margaret, and Jen Stegall and produced by Margaret and Jen.
“The first time I heard Carter sing, I knew she had a gift. The first time I sat with her, I knew she had a voice. And the first time I saw her perform, I knew she was a star,” said Altadena President Daniel Lee, “I’m excited to carry on the incredible legacy busbee built through his work with Maren and Carly as we introduce the world to the next rising female country star.”
A North Carolina native, Carter moved to Nashville to attend Belmont University as a songwriting major, bringing with her the only three songs she had written up to that point. Now a prolific and gifted writer, Carter has a unique perspective and an instantly-memorable vocal styling that calls to mind country music luminaries Kacey Musgraves and Deana Carter.
