Seth Alley signs with Big Machine

Play for Publishers alumni Seth Ally has inked his deal with Big Machine, the first four songs are mastered and he’s getting ready t hit the road on a radio tour. Barbara first heard him at a live audition for the Bluebird Cafe writers night. It only took his one-minute performance to impress her and she asked to hear more of his songs. That started their co-writing relationship which produced “Too Late Now,” a high-energy up-tempo slotted to be on the CD.
