Ennis signs with Arista

Tuesday, September 6, 2016 – Seth Ennis signed a record deal with Arista Nashville, it was announced today.

Ennis' debut track, "Woke Up In Nashville," has been released.

"I'm so excited about Seth and his music," says Randy Goodman, Chairman & CEO, Sony Music Nashville. "He represents everything good about our format and its future; young, energetic, incredible songwriter and performer. He's the whole package and the real deal."

Co-written by Ennis, David Hodges and Blair Daly and produced by Corey Crowder, "Woke Up In Nashville," Ennis, 23, plays all instruments and sings all vocals on the track.

At age seven, Ennis began playing piano, adding drums and guitar to his repertoire in late elementary and early middle school. As the middle son of a military colonel, Seth honed his talents growing up around the world - spending time in Georgia, Alabama, Washington D.C. and Japan by the time he was 16. Ennis released a Kickstarter-funded EP, "Hope Is Alive," in 2012. The Valdosta, Ga. native moved to Nashville in 2013 and became part of the songwriting community while continuing to tour the Southeast.

Concert Review: LSD tour provides a lot of highs – This was not your grandkids' country, that's for sure. Even the name of the tour - the LSD Tour - was a throwback (albeit far before the principals were making music). But make no mistake about it. With the ever cool country traditionalist Dwight Yoakam, the country with some rock and blues and rabble rousing of Steve Earle thrown in and the... »»»
Concert Review: Alvin, Gilmore fortunately get together – Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore had known each other for decades, but it wasn't until last year that they toured together in a guitar pull setting. What started as a small Texas tour mushroomed into points east and west and eventually the release earlier this month of their blues-based disc, "Downey to Lubbock." And now we have the... »»»
