Chris Rohman of Sanctus Real recently inked a publishing deal with Curb | Word Music Publishing. His musical journey began in his teenage years when he asked his father to teach him a few guitar chords inspired by local alternative rock radio. Learning to play tunes from artists like Tom Petty and Weezer, Rohman and friends eventually formed Sanctus Real. Now, more than 25 years later, Rohman boasts a substantial music catalog that spans decades, continuously resonating with a growing audience. In addition to writing and self-producing for Sanctus Real, Rohman extends his talents to various other artists. Notably, he recently took on the production of Sanctus Real’s latest release, “What Christmas Means To Me.”

“It has been a joy working alongside this iconic band for many years as we’ve watched them see overwhelming success at both Christian radio and on digital streaming platforms,” shares Curb | Word Entertainment’s VP, Christian A&R and Publishing, Jonathan Mason. “We are proud to step into this new season together.”
