Shooter Jennings Signs as Concord Label Group Staff Producer

Shooter Jennings has signed on with the Concord Label Group as a staff producer who will work closely with Concord’s Chief Label Executive Tom Whalley as a creative executive to develop the current roster, and identify new talent. Concord owns numerous imprints important to the country and roots realm, including Rounder Records, Fantasy Records, as well as Fearless Records and Loma Vista Recordings.

“I am excited to welcome Shooter to the Concord creative team,” said Concord’s Tom Whalley in a statement. “His ability to work with a variety of artists is a perfect fit for our labels and their talented rosters. I look forward to not only working with Shooter, but witnessing the impact his creative passion will have on bringing high quality recordings to the world.”

The son of Waylon Jennings won a Grammy Award for co-producing Brandi Carlile’s By The Way, I Forgive You in 2019 with Dave Cobb, and then another in 2020 as the co-producer with Carlile on Tanya Tucker’s comeback record While I’m Livin’. Numerous records Shooter produced have also been released in 2020 to critical acclaim, including American Aquarium’s Lamentations, Jaime Wyatt’s Neon Cross, Hellbound Glory’s Pure Scum, and The White Buffalo’s new album On The Widow’s Walk. Shooter also produced the new Marlyn Manson album We ARE CHAOS.

“To have the opportunity to join this [Concord] family is really a dream come true,” said Shooter Jennings. “I now find myself with so many more opportunities and resources to make the impact on music I have always dreamed of. Right off the bat, I am grateful for this. I am now looking forward to all the ways I can apply myself and my abilities alongside this great, global team to make great music and keep the world of music that grabbed me at such a young age growing, healthy, youthful, experimental and wild so that it might snatch up another generation of kids like me. I couldn’t be happier with the folks I’m surrounded by, and I’m lit up with excitement for all the work we’re going to be able to do together.”

Shooter has also worked with Jason Boland and the Stragglers, Fifth on the Floor, and Guns n’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan as a producer.
