McGraw producer Gallimore forms label

Tuesday, February 21, 2012 – Long-time Tim McGraw producer Byron Gallimore and music industry veteran Jim Wilkes today announced the launch of a new Nashville-based record label, Streamsound Records.

The label, which officially formed in fall 2011, also announced that it has inked an exclusive distribution deal with Sony Music Nashville.

Streamsound Records will be focused on an artist development strategy that will see the release of one artist at a time. The first, Jaida Dreyer, who has been nurtured by Gallimore over the past few years, will release her debut single this March. She is based in Nashville.

Gallimore, who has produced or co-produced nearly 50 number hits with the likes of McGraw, Faith Hill, Sugarland, Martina McBride and Lauren Alaina, will serve as the label's creative visionary. Wilkes, who has also worked with Gallimore on various publishing and management ventures, will oversee Streamsound's business operations.

"I've been interested in starting a label focused on and dedicated to developing artists," said Gallimore. "The intent is to work with and nurture them - to give them the time that is needed to hone their craft. This business is all about great songs, talent, passion and drive. I really do believe that we've found all of that in Jaida."

"At the end of the day, this business is all about the talent and the people that you have supporting that talent," said Wilkes. "We intend to create a culture that takes the time needed to combine good old fashioned hard work with a strong creative business strategy."

Streamsound has begun to form a team of individuals who collectively will bring decades of experience in off line marketing, digital and social media marketing and sales strategies and radio promotion.

CD reviews for Jaida Dreyer

I am Jaida Dreyer CD review - I am Jaida Dreyer
Jaida Dreyer created an album of radio friendly songs from a female vocalist who sounds like she is trying too hard to be Lorrie Morgan. The album sounds like it was recorded back in the '90s, with pop songs like Put Your Boots Back On that are reminiscent of Deana Carter. That isn't to say that the album is bad. Dreyer has a twang in her voice that has been missing from the charts for quite a while. This is about as far from Taylor Swift as you can get while still being marketed as a »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Carlile goes from excellent to memorable musical event – The last time Brandi Carlile came through town, she was promoting 2018's "By the Way, I Forgive You," which would deservedly go on to win the 2019 Grammy Award for Best Americana Album. This time out, Carlile performed fewer songs from that strong effort, which amounted to a more well-rounded live overview of her career to date.... »»»
Concert Review: Tuttle does well by coming home – Molly Tuttle has won kudos for her acoustic guitar playing. So much so that she's captured the IBMA award for Guitarist of the Year, the first female to win that acclaim from the bluegrass organization. But it's not so much Tuttle's guitar playing that stood out live. Yes, that serves her well for sure. But it's more that her... »»»
