CARNIVAL RECORDING COMPANY’S ROB BAIRD SIGNS WITH APA NASHVILLE
August 22, 2012 (Nashville, TN) – Carnival Recording Co. artist Rob Baird has signed with APA Nashville, an industry leader in the field of talent and literary representation for nearly fifty years. APA represents many of today’s most talented artists in all areas of the entertainment industry, with principal offices in Beverly Hills, New York and Nashville.
Baird is represented by longtime and respected agent, Cass Scripps, whose experience spans two decades. Scripps formed Metro Talent Group in 1992 and built it into a successful national agency before moving to Nashville in 2010. Scripps joined APA this month and made Baird one of his first signings.
“I am thrilled to be working with Rob Baird as he continues to hone his songwriting and take his genre bending message on the road,” said Cass “2013 should prove to be an exciting year for Rob, Carnival Music, and his newly expanded family here at APA Nashville.”
Baird will work with APA to continue riding the wave of success from his latest album, I Swear It’s The Truth. Produced by Scott Davis and recorded at Cedar Creek Recording Studio in Austin, Texas, I Swear It’s The Truth is a skillfully crafted collection of eleven songs, most of which were written or co-written by Baird, that rings emotionally true from beginning to end. The album has received much critical acclaim from the likes of Country Weekly, Billboard, No Depression, CMT.com, AOL The Boot, Lonestar Music Magazine, CMA Close Up, Music Row, Best in Texas, and the Dallas Morning News.
I Swear It’s The Truth follows Baird’s 2010 debut, Blue Eyed Angels.
