Songwriter, Producer - "Jar of Hearts," “Jealous of the Angels,” “Not Yet”

“To me, every song is a hero’s journey,” says songwriter/producer Barrett Yeretsian. The journeys undertaken by the highly sought-after tunesmith and producer have sold over 8 million copies worldwide, demonstrating that his intuitive, story-driven approach and radar for authenticity are a perfect fit for today's marketplace. Yeretsian’s knack for helping his co-writers locate the emotional truth at the heart of a song has led to an array of resonant hits. His breakout came with “Jar of Hearts,” the career-making single he co-penned and produced for Christina Perri. The ballad flew to #1 at iTunes after airing on So You Think You Can Dance and landed Perri a major-label deal. His subsequent successes include the #1 U.K. hit “Jealous of the Angels" which turned Jenn Bostic into a sensation throughout the British Isles; “Not Yet,” also with Bostic, a U.K. #5; and compositions with Avi Kaplan and Kirstie Maldonado (from Grammy Award-winning artist Pentatonix,) Andy Grammer, Daniel Powter, Chris Wallace, Juliette Simms and Diane Birch, among many others. Barrett launched his record label IronHeart Records in early 2015 and is in the process of signing and developing a select group of talented artists from all over the world.
