Alumna Katie Pruitt Signs Publishing Deal

Katie Pruitt live show shotBelmont songwriting alumna Katie Pruitt (2016) recently signed a co-publishing deal with creative music company Round Hill Music, which has offices in Nashville, New York and Los Angeles. The singer-songwriter won the BMI Foundation’s inaugural Nashville Songwriting Scholarship last year, and she was also recognized by the Songwriters Hall of Fame earlier this year with the Holly Prize, which honors “a new ‘all-in-one songwriter’— an exceptionally talented and inspired young musician/singer/songwriter whose work exhibits the qualities of [Buddy] Holly’s music: true, great and original.”

According to her website, Pruitt’s music is “best described by the interaction of human relationships with a musical focus on simple but evocative melodies and sung in a voice that reflects the mysteries of life. Influenced by Joni Mitchell, Bonnie Raitt and Amy Winehouse, her music is a combination of all the elements that make music great.”
