Entertainment One Music Signs Celebrated Artist Todd Dulaney
Entertainment One Music has signed celebrated artist, songwriter and worshipper Todd Dulaney to its award-winning Gospel roster. Joining eOne Music in a new recording deal, the Stellar Award-nominated singer will record and release multiple albums, with the first single slated for release in late Summer this year, off his upcoming new album slated for a first-quarter release in 2015. He'll also be appearing on The Word Network, live on Wednesday April 9th, at 8 pm EST.
Currently in-studio recording the finishing touches for his upcoming new album, Dulaney says of joining eOne Music: "My family and I are beyond excited for this fresh connection with eOne. I've watched them do great things in the music business, so I'm humbled to have the chance to be a part of and enhance this mighty machine."
Phil Thornton, eOne Music Vice President of Marketing & New Business Development, adds, "eOne Music is excited to sign an exceptional talent like Todd Dulaney, whose skilled songwriting and artistry have quickly made him a standout new artist to watch. His passion for ministry is apparent in every lyric and melody, inspiring anyone who has heard his songs, and as we continue development on Todd's new album, it is clear that his music will impact Gospel for a long time to come."
A former professional baseball player, Todd Dulaney grew up in the Chicago area. While pursuing his athletic career, the lifelong athlete and singer realized there was a higher calling to share the message of God through music ministry, and began his music career traveling and performing background vocals for Grammy-winning Gospel artist Smokie Norful. In a few short years Dulaney has continued to blaze a dynamic path in Gospel, working with many award-winning artists from Vanessa Bell Armstrong, Fred Hammond, Maurette Brown-Clark and Donnie McClurkin, to Michelle Williams, Earnest Pugh, and Tye Tribbett, among others, and released his debut album, the well-received "Pulling Me Through."
Garnering a Stellar Award nomination in 2012 for "New Artist of the Year," the Chicago-based singer has continued to write, record and perform. Gearing up with fresh new songs on the horizon recording for his upcoming album, Dulaney recently appeared on TBN and The Word Network, and in addition to his upcoming new appearance on The Word Network again on April 9th, he is slated to perform at the Chicago Gospel Music Awards on June 13.
