BMG Chrysalis US and Big Stage Music have signed a co-publishing agreement with Russian-born singer/songwriter Alina Smith. Big Stage Music is a newly formed artist development publishing company launched by publishing veteran Clay Myers and artist manager Trey Turner.
Nashville-based Smith debuted her first country single, the self-produced “Free Beer,” on Feb. 17. A full-length album is forthcoming.
At the age of six, Smith toured extensively throughout Europe with a prestigious performance group before moving to the US. With stints in Las Vegas, New York and Los Angeles, Smith has written with top local talent and played hundreds of shows at venues such as Hotel Cafe, The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall and The Mint. She placed first in the KTLA-TV Battle of the Bands and received awards from the Great American Song Contest, Temecula Music Festival, Johnny Mercer Foundation and Hollywood Music Awards.
“The Nashville community has been buzzing about Alina,” said Kos Weaver, Executive Vice President at BMG Chrysalis Nashville. “She offers the rare triple threat of artist power, songwriting chops and production skills. We are fortunate to have her and to be partnered with our good friends Clay and Trey.”
“Alina Smith is a true talent that we are honored to be representing and we cherish the opportunity to be working with the great team at BMG in this venture,” commented Myers.
