Primary Wave, the music publishing, marketing and artist management firm, has entered into an agreement with EMI Music’s Label Services unit for North American distribution for Primary Wave‘s label. The two companies will also release select artists via a joint venture.

The first Primary Wave release EMI Label Services will distribute will be the eponymous debut album from Stillwater Oklahoma rock band Taddy Porter, slated for June 2010. The band: Andy Brewer, Joe Selby, Kevin Jones and Doug Jones, were discovered by industry veterans Rick Smith & Scott Frazier, who now manage Taddy Porter on behalf of Primary Wave’s management arm. Led by the surging single “Shake Me,” and produced by Skidd Mills (ZZ Top, Saving Abel), the album promises a collection of timeless, undeniable rock songs. Taddy Porter will aggressively tour the US in support of the release, with planned dates including the 2010 Rock OnThe Range (5/22) & Rocklahoma (5/28-30) Festivals.
