A Publishing Company From Full Circle Music
OUR WRITER ROSTER
For twenty years, Ohio native, Matt Hammitt, was the lead singer and songwriter for Dove Award-winning and two-time Grammy-nominated band Sanctus Real. During that time, the band released eight albums under Sparrow Records, toured internationally and released fourteen Top 5 and #1 singles to Christian radio, including their biggest hit to date, “Lead Me.” As crowds of thousands echoed the words, “Don’t want to leave them hungry for love, chasing things that I could give up,” Matt was deeply convicted that it was time for him to step away from Sanctus Real to be more present with his wife, Sarah, and their four children. In 2016, he partnered with Full Circle Music and producer Seth Mosley to work on his self-titled solo album that released in November 2017. Additionally, Matt is writing a book about the themes of “Lead Me” scheduled for release in late 2018.

His songs have been featured in everything from the CW’s 90210, to Universal’s Postman Pat movie, to Tony Hawk Pro Skater games. Riley has written with and produced with many artists including Family Force 5, Building 429, Brandon Heath, Hannah Kerr, and Jen Ledger, among others.

Madeline McDonald is a young songwriter of considerable depth and substance, possessing an engaging voice that stops listeners in their tracks. A Houston native, Madeline grew up listening to Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts and other modern country trailblazers as well as pop acts like Adele and Jessie J. She performed in school theater productions and venues around town, later moving to Nashville to intern at Full Circle Music by day and play writer rounds in the city by night. The founder of Full Circle, songwriter/producer Seth Mosley, was so impressed by Madeline that he offered her a publishing deal. As of late, McDonald has been busy readying her debut project and crafting insightful, no-holds-barred songs about life’s triumphs and challenges.
