NASHVILLE, Tenn. – EMI CMG Publishing announces the signing of GRAMMY-award winning songwriter Aaron Lindsey to their critically acclaimed roster of writers. Over the last 20 years, Lindsey has become a well sought after musician, producer, and clinician in Gospel and Christian music. Recognizing the variety of Lindsey’s writing talent, EMI CMG Publishing sees his great potential in various styles of the Christian music industry.
“During the time that I have been administering and controlling my own publishing, I have realized that I have not explored the full depth of what I am capable of writing and producing,” shares Lindsey on his move to EMI CMG Publishing. “Eddie DeGarmo and John J. Thompson were critical to my final decision because there was a transparency and positivity present that gave me the sense that they recognized my potential as a pop Christian/CCM writer as well as a gospel writer.”
Throughout his career, Lindsey has become one of the top producers and songwriters in the gospel genre. His friendship with Israel Houghton led him to become partner and co-founder of New Breed Productions and the group Israel & New Breed. For over eight years the partnership co-wrote, produced, and birthed some of the most powerful songs used in churches today.
“Anyone who has been paying attention knows all about Aaron’s success in Gospel Music,” says EMI CMG Publishing President Eddie DeGarmo, “but fewer understand the passion, expertise and finesse he brings to other genres such as pop and rock. It’s a true honor to work with a songwriter – and person – of his caliber, and we can’t wait to see this next chapter of his ministry and career unfold.”
As a multiple Stellar, Dove, Soul Train and GRAMMY winner, Lindsey's accomplishments have been acknowledged and respected among his peers and avid music lovers internationally. Over the years, Lindsay has written and produced artists such as Yolanda Adams, Israel Houghton, Marvin Sapp, Martha Munizzi, Fred Hammond, Lakewood Church, and GRAMMY-nominated newcomers Royal Tailor.
