NEWARK, N.J., Nov. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Global alternative asset management company HarbourView Equity Partners (HarbourView) is expanding its already profound footprint in the country music space, announcing today that it has agreed to partner and purchase certain publishing assets from multi-platinum selling and award-winning country sensation Kane Brown.
Brown is recognized as a revolutionary artist within the country music world, pushing boundaries with his unique musical blend of country, hip-hop, and rock elements, complemented by heartfelt and authentic lyrics. Some of Brown’s country chart-topping hits include “What Ifs,” which received 8X Platinum RIAA certification, “Homesick,” “Used to Love You Sober,” “Like I Love Country Music” and “Lose It.” Additionally, Brown has had Top-40 hits including “One Thing Right,” and “Be Like That,” which both remained on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 23 and 22 weeks respectively. Brown has also collaborated with noteworthy artists like Khalid, H.E.R., Marshmello, Becky G, John Legend, and Nelly, to name a few.
Key milestones in Brown’s career include being the first artist to top all five Billboard Country charts simultaneously and serving as the first male country artist to take the stage at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards, performing his R&B-infused hit, “Grand.” To date, Brown has earned five Country Music Television (CMT) Awards, five American Music Awards (AMA) and an Academy of Country Music (ACM) award.
Brown’s journey to stardom and recognition started through sharing covers of renowned artists like Brantley Gilbert, Billy Currington, and Alan Jackson on Facebook. He then went viral after releasing his first single “Don’t Go City on Me” in 2014.
“Partnering with someone like Kane who adds such a beautiful texture to the country genre is consistent with who we are as a firm. Kane is a special talent, and we are excited to be on the journey,” says HarbourView Equity Partners CEO and Founder Sherrese Clarke Soares.
“I’m grateful to Sherrese and HarbourView for their belief in my songwriting catalog. These songs that I’ve written are very meaningful to my fans and my career,” shared Kane Brown.
