Award-winning Australian singer/songwriter Nathan Tasker has signed an exclusive recording agreement with Entertainment One. Named among "2011: New Artists to Watch” by Gospel Music Channel’s www.watchgmctv.com, Tasker's Entertainment One debut, Home, is slated for release May 17.
“I was instantly captivated by Nathan, his open vulnerabilities and his honest approach to faith,” said Robert Morrison, Vice President, Christian Music, Entertainment One. “It’s an honor to call him friend and I am very excited to be a part of his journey. He is a truly gifted artist in every sense and has a unique ability to reach people where they are.”
"I am so excited about partnering with Entertainment One,” said Tasker. “It’s a blessing to find a label home so supportive of the vision I have for my music. I am confident this new relationship will allow me to share the music and mission God has placed on my heart with a new audience in the U.S., as well as abroad."
Tasker's stateside debut single, "Something Beautiful," which he co-penned with Ian Eskelin, is now impacting Christian radio formats. The song is also featured among the "New and Noteworthy" and "What We're Listening To" selections on iTunes' Christian & Gospel homepage. In support of "Something Beautiful," Tasker has been visiting radio stations around the country, including recent stops in Michigan, Indiana, Georgia, Arkansas and North Carolina.
