Founded by Jennifer Johnson and Matt Swanson in 2016, Riser House Entertainment is now three distinct arms – Label, Publishing, and Artist Management – that work in tandem to bring sound artistry to life. Home to some of Nashville’s most exciting new talent, Riser House takes an artist-first philosophy with our staff setting out every day to support our artists’ careers from publishing, distribution, and radio promotion to marketing, A&R, and creative services.
Before establishing Riser House, President and co-founder Jennifer Johnson enjoyed a great deal of success as one of Nashville’s top publishers with Song Factory Publishing. There, she signed Jon Pardi, Dustin Lynch, and Ashley McBryde, to name a few.
With the creation of Riser House Records in 2017, artist Mitchell Tenpenny was signed, releasing his first EP, Linden Ave, in the same year. Riser House/Columbia Records are releasing Tenpenny’s first full album in late 2018.
Continuing to grow and foster new talent, the Riser House team is focused on the goal of bringing quality music to fans that tell stories, pull at the heartstrings, and spark inspiration.
