On Ramp Records Signs Craig Moritz






Canadian Country Artist Gears up for New Single, Video and Album for Summer 2011


May 2, 2011 (Edmonton, AB and Nashville, TN) – Craig Moritz is pleased to join On Ramp Records, the premier country brand of EMI Canada, as the newest member of its noted artist roster. On Ramp Records is now the exclusive Canadian label representative for Moritz, and will oversee distribution with EMI Music Canada for his upcoming highly anticipated, third album ‘Only When You’re Lonely’ – due out the summer of 2011.  In addition, On Ramp Records will support Craig’s ongoing artist development as part of their mandate to grow country music in Canada.


“We’re happy to welcome Craig to the On Ramp Records family and work with him on his upcoming album,” said Louis O’Reilly, President of On Ramp Records and O’Reilly International. “Since 2004, Craig has tenaciously been making his mark in the Canadian country music landscape, and it’s been great to watch him grow as a performer and songwriter. This third album has fresh material that is sure to resonate with country music fans from coast-to-coast, and we’re proud to be able to support getting Craig’s music to listeners nationwide. We look forward to building a long relationship with Craig and work with him to build a legacy of songs for the country genre.”


“It’s an honour to work with Louis and the On Ramp Records team on my third album,” said Craig Moritz. “As a musician it’s important to be part of a team that believes in you and your music, and supports you in all facets of the decision-making that goes into getting an album out to fans. Louis and On Ramp Records have been a great compass to help guide me to make key-decisions in this process, and have instilled a great deal of confidence in me as a recording artist. I am proud to work with them to have their support getting my new music out to Canadian country music fans, and I’m excited to get some new material out to my incredibly supportive fans in Canada.”


Noted for his tongue and cheek radio hit, Blame You, which also has an accompanying CMT video, Craig wrapped up promoting his 2008 ‘Down and Dirty’ album by frequently visiting Nashville to write tracks for 2011’s ‘Only When You’re Lonely.’ With 16 tracks slated to appear on the album, Craig’s goal is to give country music fans value for their money spent on albums.


Craig will release the single ‘Only When You’re Lonely’ to Canadian country radio on May 9, 2011. The debut single from the upcoming album was written by Moritz and Steve Fox and has generated significant buzz with NSAI and the songwriter community in recent months. Fans can look forward to the third album in June 2011.
