– Singer Lily Rose signed with Big Loud Records, Back Blocks Music and Republic Records, it was announced today.
The signing came several weeks after she released her debut single "Villian" with >video also out.
"To say I'm excited and humbled to be a part of the Big Loud/Republic family is an understatement. You move to Nashville to sign deals like this, make music videos like these, and write the best songs possible," said Rose. "Hell, we're just getting started."
A native of Atlanta, Rose has pursued a music career for more than 13 years, while working flexible part-time jobs to remain focused to write and record music.
On Dec. 1, 2020, Rose posted a clip of "Villain," a song she wrote with Mackenzie Carpenter and Kyle Clark (produced by Matt Morrissey) about a break-up she believed ended cordially, only to find out she'd been painted as the 'bad guy' through social media. Two weeks later, she released the song independently.
"The country music business is on fire right now, and artists are breaking independently faster than ever before. Big Loud couldn't be more excited to work with Lily Rose, who's emerging from this pack of newcomers. Her voice becomes familiar after just one listen, and to pair that with her catalog of amazing unreleased songs, we believe she's an artist who will be around for years to come. Lily is a voice that Country music has needed for some time, and 'Villain' is just the reactive hit to get her started. Welcome to the Big Loud family, Lily," said Big Loud Partners (Seth England, Joey Moi, and Craig Wiseman)in a statement.
