Nettwerk One Music has signed artist and songwriter Kyle Cook to its expanding roster of talented songwriters, which includes Jessie Jo Dillon, Neil Mason (The Cadillac Three), Mike Fiorentino, Austin Jenckes, Tammi Kidd Hutton and others.
Best known as lead guitarist for Matchbox 20, Kyle has lived in Nashville for the better part of a decade. His career has been ever evolving — within MB20 (whose most recent album North hit #1 on the Billboard 20); as lead guitarist/lead vocalist with The New Left; co-writing, performing and producing several songs on John Waite’s 2011 Rough & Tumble; opening his own record label last year (Tennessee Recording Company); and now preparing to release his debut solo album, Wolves, out later this year.
Nettwerk’s AJ Burton says, “Kyle and I have been friends for the past 10 years and have always wanted to partner on something. Now felt like the right time for us with Kyle launching a solo album, creating his duo Rivers and Rust and with Matchbox Twenty’s upcoming 20th Anniversary in 2016. Exciting times lie ahead!”
Kyle adds, “Having met AJ when I moved my family up to Nashville over a decade ago, I’ve come to know him as a great friend. And now I’m proud to know him professionally too, as I begin a new chapter of my career with the fantastic folks at Nettwerk!”
