Razor & Tie Music Publishing (RTMP) recently announced the signing of singer songwriter Thomas Finchum. The Indianapolis native is currently a senior in Belmont’s music business program.
“Thomas is one of those rare, gifted humans that writes songs that cut straight through the surface and put hurt in your heart, while delivering them with a flawless and convincing voice. He’s a deep well of talent. I’m honored that he’d share his career with us at Razor and Tie,” says Brad Kennard, Razor & Tie Music Publishing’s VP of Creative.
Finchum says, “I’m so excited and grateful to join the team at Razor and Tie! From the very first time I met with Brad, I knew I found someone that not only believed in the music I was making, but someone that would challenge and push me to be better every single day. I can’t wait to see what this next chapter will hold.”
Finchum was a platform diver on the U.S. 2008 Olympic Team before pursuing a career in country music. After spending much of his life pursuing sports, an injury sidelined those efforts, and Thomas picked up the guitar later than most, at the age of 21. As soon as he learned a few chords, Thomas began writing songs and soon recognized that he had a well of emotions to draw from. The energy and focus that he had previously directed towards sports proved valuable as he began the path of playing, writing and eventually performing music.
