Pigasus Records, the label and brainchild of Iowa-born, now Nashville based artist Hailey Whitters, has announced a partnership with the unique and first-of-its-kind label, Songs & Daughters (Big Loud Records). Big Loud Records / Songs & Daughters will lead and continue the promotion and marketing for Whitters’ self-released album The Dream.
Songs & Daughters is the brainchild of, and driven by, acclaimed (BMI Songwriter of the year 2019) Singer-Songwriter Nicolle Galyon. Songs & Daughters aims to be a home for female creatives which desires to nurture the art (the song) and the artist (the daughter). Since its launch in July 2019, the label has already had massive success with their flagship artist and CMT Next Women of Country 2020 class member, Madison Kozak.
Speaking of the partnership Whitters says “I’m proud to partner with Big Loud Records / Songs & Daughters, and to be represented by a label that is building artist’s careers in innovative ways that are unrestrained by industry standards and norms“. Galyon also expresses her excitement for the new partnership “To me, Hailey represents the heart of my favorite kind of Nashville success story. She’s had the tenacity to master her craft for 12 years, the gift to turn that into compelling music, and the authenticity to win over the Music Row community with a record she made all on her own. I’m honored to get to be a small part of the incredible story she’s writing.”
Seth England, Partner/CEO of Big Loud, shares, “Entering our fifth year as a record company, we knew it was time to evolve Big Loud’s roster in creative directions we haven’t been before. Today’s announcement marks a big step in that. We have been so drawn to what Hailey and team have been building, and the incredible music they make.” Adding, “Hailey is the quintessential Nashville success story and we couldn’t be more proud to be a part of her future. Thank you Hailey, for trusting Big Loud Records / Songs & Daughters to partner in your next chapter.”
Having already received great acclaim for The Dream from American Songwriter, The Washington Post and more, it is expected that this new partnership will continue to build strongly upon Whitters’ success, alongside building the Big Louds Records creative roster. Co-managers Matt Graham (BRND MGMT) and Chris Kappy (MAKE WAKE ARTISTS) say, “Artists like Hailey Whitters rarely come along – she can be one of the biggest stars in the genre, that’s why we decided to team up and pitch her together rather than compete for her. We’ve spent the last year building a team worthy of her talent. Big Loud Records / Songs & Daughters has been an immediate force on that team and we couldn’t be happier with this new partnership.”
