Blanton Harrell Cooke & Corzine Sign New Worship Leader

Premier management company Blanton Harrell Cooke & Corzine will be adding Atlanta-based worship leader Aaron Shust to its roster of best-selling, award-winning artists and authors that include Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Frank Peretti, Joy Williams, Bebo Norman, and Point of Grace.

“Aaron’s talent as a singer and songwriter coupled with his passion to communicate makes him a perfect fit for us,” said Blanton Harrell Cooke & Corzine’s founding partner, Michael Blanton. “Whether he’s leading worship for five people or five thousand, his approachable style and engaging manner is endearing to everyone who hears him.”

“It’s been amazing to watch strangers become instant fans as we’ve approached them with Aaron’s music,” said BHC & C vice president of artist development, Mitch White, who will be coordinating Shust’s management. “His songs are compelling and instantly accessible.”

Shust’s management agreement was orchestrated by his record company, Brash Music, an Atlanta, GA,-based mainstream independent label formed under the leadership of former Mindspring president and COO, Mike McQuary.

“Although the Christian music market is new to us, what is not new is our commitment to great music,” said McQuary. “We’re very excited to have a company like Blanton Harrell Cooke & Corzine representing Aaron.”

Shust is scheduled to release his debut project this summer on Brash Music/Word Distribution. Shust will also be making several appearances in concert over the next few months including one today and tomorrow at the CBA in Denver, CO.
