Martha Earls is the Owner of efg Mgmt and the Manager of multi-platinum, No.1 selling recording artist, Kane Brown.  She met then unsigned Brown in 2015, and has since guided his career from social media phenomenon, through his record breaking album debut, to being the only artist in history to simultaneously top all 5 Billboard Country charts. Earls got her start in the music industry in college when she was hired at Warner/Chappell Music Publishing where she ultimately guided the careers of Little Big Town, David Vincent Williams, Jim Collins, Vicky McGehee and more. She then joined BMG Music Publishing where she had a hand in signing Jake Owen and worked with Ed Hill, Marcus Hummon and Luke Laird. In 2008, with long time friend Mike Molinar, they started Elevation Music Publishing, and in 2011 started the publishing and artist management company Effusion Entertainment, which became what is now Big Machine Music Publishing. While overseeing the transition of Effusion to Big Machine, Earls simultaneously managed Top-5 Republic artist Greg Bates. Earls then joined Sandbox Management and later embarked on her own, all while managing artists signed to Curb and Big Machine.
