Grammy nominated writer Jeff Pardo has extended his worldwide publishing deal with Capitol CMG Publishing. Pardo has garnered writer success with songs recorded by Christian music headliners Mandisa, Francesca Battistelli, Laura Story, Danny Gokey, and Josh Wilson, as well as mainstream artists Lady Antebellum, Ben Rector and Hillary Scott. Pardo’s background as a session player, touring musician, and producer has made him an extremely versatile member of the Nashville songwriter community. His accomplishments range from scoring top 10 AC singles performed by Rhett Walker Band (“When Mercy Found Me”), Mandisa (“Waiting for Tomorrow”), and Francesca Battistelli (“If We’re Honest”); developing and co-penning over 30 songs with Capitol CMG artist Josh Wilson; and crafting the storyteller song “30,000 Feet” recorded by Ben Rector. “We are very pleased to extend our relationship with Jeff and look forward to building on his past success to expand his songwriting in both CCM and Country music,” says Jimi Williams, VP Creative, Capitol CMG Publishing.
