Multi-Award winning songwriter and producer Stan Jones’ Clout Music Group (CMG) has formed a joint-venture partnership with the legendary gospel music enterprise Tyscot Records to exclusively distribute future CMG albums and recordings.
“Tyscot Records has proven longevity,” says Jones. “They were a pioneer in the past and they continue to break exciting new ground for new #1 acts such as Anthony Brown & group therAPy and Casey J.” The union will marry Tyscot’s vast promotional and marketing resources with Jones’ dynamic handpicked vocalists, his powerful songwriting skills and his A1 production standards. “Stan Jones is a premiere producer who has established his brand in the gospel genre,” says Tyscot COO Bryant Scott. “We are excited to partner with Stan as he launches Clout Music Group.”
CMG’s first release will be the Spring 2016 debut album by Durward Davis who appeared on season three of Black Entertainment Television’s (BET) gospel music competition television series “Sunday Best.” The dynamic singer came in third behind Elder Goldwire McClendon and Le’Andria Johnson who won the title of Sunday Best.
