Reservoir has signed songwriter and producer Keith ‘Ten4’ Sorrells to a worldwide publishing deal, through its joint venture with producer Oak Felder.

The deal includes global rights to Sorrell’s entire catalog of works including No.1 comeback single I Love Me performed by Demi Lovato and new single Actions by John Legend.

The signing follows Reservoir’s deal inked last month with two-time Grammy-nominated artist, songwriter, and producer Joyner Lucas.

The latest addition to Oak Felder’s protégé production group, The Orphanage, which also includes Reservoir writers Trevor Brown and Zaire Koalo, Sorrells recently co-wrote and/or co-produced a trio of lead singles for major label artists.

His Demi Lovato collaboration, I Love Me, went to No.1 on Billboard’s Digital Song Sales chart, and was debuted by Lovato as the lead single off her comeback seventh studio album, set to release this year.

In support of the single’s release, she recently performed the track on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon: At Home Edition.

Moreover, Sorrells co-wrote Actions, the latest single from John Legend, and the first track off his forthcoming album.

Like Lovato, Legend similarly appeared on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon: At Home Edition to debut the track live.

Sorrells also co-wrote Anne-Marie’s February 2020 single, Birthday, which racked up over 31 million streams on Spotify and was a Top 10 hit in five countries. 

A songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, Sorrells has been in the studio with Kehlani, Kiana Ledé, PRETTYMUCH, Alina Baraz, JoJo, and more.

Like Oak, he works out of Su Casa Studios in Sherman Oaks, California and is managed by Milk & Honey.

“Oak has been such an amazing mentor and friend to me. He’s taught me so much about music and even more about life.”

Sorrells said: “Oak has been such an amazing mentor and friend to me. He’s taught me so much about music and even more about life.

“I’m so incredibly thankful for him and both The Orphanage and Reservoir teams for accepting me into the fold. There are no other people I’d rather be making music with.” 

“I’ve had the blessing of seeing and helping Keith progress from a wet behind the ears, super new beginner, to a monstrous powerhouse of a producer.”

Oak Felder added: “I’ve had the blessing of seeing and helping Keith progress from a wet behind the ears, super new beginner, to a monstrous powerhouse of a producer.

“He truly is a student who fills me with pride, a great friend, and a future legend. Welcome to the high ground!”  

“It’s pretty incredible to see a young songwriter have huge success with three major label releases recorded by A-list artists right out of the gate, but that just speaks to Keith’s talent.”

“Oak has fostered such a wonderful community of writer-producers in The Orphanage. We’re very proud to be a part of it and welcome Keith into the family.”
