Bigride Records Launches With Marlee Scott

Bigride Entertainment has launched new division Bigride Records, expanding the artist management business that has been headed by Gerry Leiske since 1997 and achieved success with country band Emerson Drive.

Marlee Scott is the label’s flagship artist and her debut U.S. single, “Beautiful Maybe,” goes for adds June 27. She is currently on a radio tour in support of the song co-written by Marcus Hummon, Tia Sillers and Tania Hancheroff, and produced by David Kalmusky.

CO5 Nashville and Marco Promotions are working the single at radio, with Teboo Consulting’s Teddi Bonadies overseeing all radio operations. Entertainment PR and marketing firm Aristo P.R. is handling publicity for Scott, while management, social media, and creative services are being handled in-house. RED/MRI is responsible for national sales and distribution. Chant Image and Music City Networks are providing additional social media and web services, and brand development company Art of the Game has been hired to explore sponsorship and corporate event opportunities.

The Canadian-born singer-songwriter has lived in Nashville since 2007, and has scored hits and award nominations around the world. She was nominated last year for the Rising Star award at the Canadian Country Music Awards (CCMAs). Her most recent single, “Here to Heaven,” was a Top 20 success in Canada and Australia and a No. 1 hit in England, Germany and Holland.

Bigride Records President Kim Leiske says Scott’s U.S. debut album is due out in late 2011 or early 2012.
