About Steve Bloch

After a decade of success with his LA based talent agency, ENTERTAINMENT ASSOCIATES, Bloch segued into publishing and founded SOUTHERN COW MUSIC in 1991, moved his headquarters to Nashville in ’93, and hasn’t looked back since.  His boutique publishing company garnered cuts with Faith Hill, Lee Ann Womack, Rebecca Lynn Howard, and Lee Greenwood.  In addition he secured cuts with Kenny Chesney, John Berry, Tracy Byrd and Lila McCann, while independently pitching songs for Gary Burr, Tom Damphier, Greg Barnhill, and Pat Bunch, among others.

In the late 90’s, he was hired by Doug Johnson, label head at GIANT RECORDS, to do independent A&R for the label where he generated cuts for Clay Walker, Keith Harling, and Blake Shelton.

In 2003, he co-founded WRITER ZONE MUSIC, LLC.,  a uniquely innovative publishing company.  Writers who came on board with a high level of past measurable success (#1 songs) share equity in the company.  Writer/Partners include Thom Schuyler (“16th Ave.”/Lacy J. Dalton), Rand Bishop (“My List”/Toby Keith) and Jon Robbin (“I Breathe In I Breathe Out”/Chris Cagle).

IN 2009, Steve went on to once again listen for songs for Doug Johnson, who had become the Creative head of CURB RECORDS in 2003.

In early 2011, an official relationship between Steve Bloch and the innovative multifaceted entertainment company, ARTIST AND REPERTOIRE, LLC, was designed.  Steve oversaw Publishing Relations for the company, strategically scheduling and promoting its writers and marketing the rich, deep A&R song catalog to the greater Nashville music community.

When Doug Johnson left Curb to become the creative head of BLACK RIVER ENTERTAINMENT, he once again reached out to Steve to assist him in finding the best material for his artists, including Craig Morgan, Kellie Pickler, Sarah Darling, and Glen Templeton.

Steve is a frequent guest of the West Coast Songwriters Association, the Durango Songwriters Expo, the Arizona Songwriters Association, TAXI, and various SGA and NSAI events.

As Steve always says, “You never know where you’ll find the magic”.

Have you ever thought: “Wow I think I have a really good song. If only I could get a legitimate publisher to listen?”
