Natalia Signs Record Deal

Australian-born and currently Nashville-based Natalia Demo has signed a worldwide publishing agreement with Music Nashville.

Natalia grew up in the suburbs of Melbourne. At the age of 17, she was accepted into Belmont University in Nashville Tennessee to study and began co-writing.

In 2013, she was accepted into the ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) Guidance from Publishers for Songwriters (GPS) Class, where along with 11 other singer/songwriters, she was paired with publishers, attorneys and other industry influentials to help develop her songwriting craft and music career.

Natalia has been working with some or Nashville’s well-known songwriting heavyweights.

The agreement sees the publisher sign Natalia to an artist development deal and as a singer/songwriter.

“I’m excited and honored to get to pursue what I love and have always been passionate about and worked at, as a career,” Natalia said. “To have the opportunity to write music on a professional level with Music Nashville giving me the platform to pitch my music to some of the greatest artists in the world is what I have dreamed of achieving.

“In fact, this exceeds my dreams. I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the Nashville team and member of the Warner family worldwide and look forward to working hard and achieving great things.”

Natalia plans to remain living in Nashville while she works on a debut album.

Jim Sherwood serves as chief creative, brand strategist, lead developer, meticulous project manager, and station collaborator for all Skyrocket Radio sites and projects.

Jim got his start in radio at WLSM in the small town of Louisville, MS in 1988. Since then he has worked on-air in all day parts and has held nearly every other station position at one time or another. Jim has worked for radio stations in several states and for iHeartMedia (Clear Channel Radio), CBS Radio, Cumulus Broadcasting and a few small locally-owned stations. He even hosted a morning show on an aircraft carrier for two years while in the Navy. Jim has a passion for radio history, music, gadgets and all kinds of geeky web stuff.

After 14 years at Clear Channel Radio, Jim left the industry in 2013 to devote full-time attention to his company, Mediagin Creative, a small freelance creative agency that develops WordPress websites as well as produces commercials for radio and TV. After being asked by the Mississippi Association of Broadcasters to speak to a panel of small market station owners about the need for better websites, it became apparent that an easy to use and low-cost solution was needed to assist smaller markets in competing for online ad dollars. Skyrocket Radio was born.
