MONUMENT SIGNS SAM DEROSA OF SONGLAND
9/5/19

Pop singer/songwriter Sam DeRosa has signed to Monument Records, a JV with Sony Music Entertainment, and released her first single, “Pill For This,” on 9/5.  DeRosa is best known for co-writing lovelytheband's hit "broken."

DeRosa performed “Pill For This” 9/4 on NBC’s show, Songland. Producers Shane McAnally, Ester Dean, and Ryan Tedder, along with guest recording artist Charlie Puth, watched in awe as she belted out the lyrics. Working with multi-Grammy Award winning songwriter and producer McAnally on the episode, the two attempted to turn the song into something that Puth might eventually record.

After the performance, everyone in the room knew that she couldn’t give the song away, and McAnally saw a bona fide pop artist. He promptly brought DeRosa in to Monument Records, the record label he is co-president of with Jason Owen, to meet Owen and Monument Senior Vice President Katie McCartney. They fully agreed.

McAnally said: "Working with Sam on Songland gave me a front row seat to her ability to write, produce, perform, and connect. I instantly knew I wanted to work with her beyond the show, and have been amazed by her depth and heart."
