ABOUT TAYLOR LAMB:
Born in Eugene, Oregon, Taylor Lamb was raised on a steady dose of late 90’s and early 2000’s country music. After always having a desire to work in the music industry, Taylor moved to Los Angeles to attend Pepperdine University and graduated with a Business degree in 2017.
While finishing college Taylor began interning at Position Music, an indie publisher/record label/management company focused on synch licensing. Upon graduating, he accepted a role as A&R Coordinator at the company and spent two years supporting the A&R staff.
Seeking to pursue his dream of working in country music, Taylor and his wife moved to Nashville in July 2019 to try and make it happen. After getting connected with Brooke through another publisher, Taylor started helping her out and was named Creative Director in January 2020. His responsibilities in this position will include creative publishing and writer management duties, as well as aiding in artist development initiatives.
ABOUT RED CREATIVE GROUP:
Acclaimed producer/songwriter, Jeremy Stover, launched RED Creative Group in late 2014. Since inception RED has celebrated over 200 cuts and 35 singles on the country charts with such songs as “How Not To” by Dan + Shay, “Somebody Else Will“ by Justin Moore”, “How I’ll Always Be” by Tim McGraw, “Sleep Without You” by Brett Young and “After A Few” by Travis Denning. “It takes a lot of hard work to get there that fast. I wanted to establish a place and a culture,” remarks Stover.
RED’s office in Nashville’s vibrant Berry Hill area is a welcoming creative space for it’s roster that includes the talents of Travis Denning, Adam Hambrick, Jeremy Stover, Kelly Archer, Nathan Spicer, David Fanning, LJ, and Baker Grissom.
RED Creative has established itself, not only as a successful independent music publisher, but also as a leader in the area of artist development, resulting in major label record deals for their artist/writers Travis Denning(Mercury) and Adam Hambrick(Capitol Nashville/Buena Vista). Denning was one of three artists in the country genre selected as a recipient of the inaugural CMA Kixstart artist initiative, as well as one of four selected for The Grand Ole Opry’s Opry Next initiative. Denning’s current single “After A Few”, co-written with RED’s Kelly Archer, is Top 20 and climbing with over 10 million streams. Hambrick released his debut single “Rockin All Night Long” in late 2018 and has already landed tours with Brett Young, Jordan Davis, Mitchel Tenpenny, & Lanco. Hambrick has already surpassed 40 million streams as an artist.
In late 2018 Stover established RED Creative Management in partnership with Coran Capshaw’s Red Light Management. RED Creative Management’s roster includes artists Travis Denning, Adam Hambrick, and LJ.
RED Creative Group continues to be a leading independent music publisher for artist, producer and songwriter development.
