BIG MACHINE LABEL GROUP (BMLG)'s THE VALORY MUSIC CO. imprint has expanded with the signing of artist LEVI HUMMON.
"As our Country format ebbs and flows, it's always so important from an A&R perspective to look past what's happening now and make some moves on the future direction," stated BMLG CEO/President SCOTT BORCHETTA. "LEVI's unique vision and incredible artistry is exactly the kind of musical move we want to make now. This is a very significant artist signing."
HUMMON is a NASHVILLE native and the son of GRAMMY AWARD winning songwriter MARCUS HUMMON. An accomplished songwriter himself, HUMMON co-wrote "Make It Love" with DESMOND CHILD, earning a place on the short list of nominations for the OSCAR for "Best Original Song." HUMMON is currently at work on his debut album, which is set to release next year. Management will be provided by FLETCHER FOSTER's ICONIC ENTERTAINMENT GROUP.
"It really feels like a dream come true to be a part of the VALORY/BMLG family!" exclaimed HUMMON. "I've gotten to know a lot of the staff already, and it feels like one big family. This label home already feels so supportive and is a perfect fit for my music. I also want to give a special shout out to my dad, who has been both a friend and mentor to me through this process, and a huge thank you to DESMOND CHILD and FLETCHER FOSTER for their belief in me."
