About

Plain and simple…we help build hit songwriters. Combustion Music opened its doors
in 2001 with the mission of providing a closely knit creative environment for
up and coming songwriters to flourish and ultimately maximize the value of
their copyrights. Eighteen years and 75 #1 hits later, we continue to follow that very same path. There is no science to art, however at Combustion, carefully nurtured and focused creative support combined with raw talent, can lead to some extremely positive results. The consistency in our staff, the longevity of our writer relationships, and the agility to adapt quickly to an ever-changing music business environment, has led, over these 18 years, to some very solid results. We pride ourselves on that consistency and longevity, as evidenced by a 17-year relationship with six-time country Songwriter of the Year, Ashley Gorley, and a 12-year run with five-time Christian Songwriter of the Year, Matthew West. Again and again, our songs and catalogs hold up over time as evidenced by our consistent growth and return, and our writers’ loyalty. Nashville is clearly at the center of country music, and while our catalog contains works from many genres, at our core we are a country music company. We work out of a house on Music Row built in the 1930’s, where music is coming out of every room….songwriters working on new compositions, and creatives listening and trying to find a suitable home for the latest demos. Music is everywhere. Nashville is a hot city, and country music is an even hotter genre…country is cool, and youthful and vibrant and playing and growing in every corner of the globe. Combustion Music stands at the forefront of companies strategically prepared to continue to capitalize on this worldwide growth.
