Big Loud/Maverick has welcomed Lex Lipsitz to its management team, to handle day-to-day management for country artist Sean Stemaly.
A Texas native and Belmont University graduate, Lipsitz began his career as a touring drummer, before he began managing producers including Kid Ink and Toby Wright, alongside artists including Shooter Jennings.
Lipsitz later led the music department at Relativity Music, where he oversaw strategy for Jennings’ Put The ‘O’ Back In Country. Lipsitz later moved to Nashville and became head of A&R for Average Joe’s Entertainment (Montgomery Gentry, Colt Ford), and a marketing consultant for Sony Music Nashville and Big Machine Label Group. Over the last decade he’s cultivated and grown his own management roster under LEX Music Group (Lit, Jon Wolfe, Sean Stemaly, Stoney Banks, Joedi Silvers and more), while running a real estate investment company and stepping into the tech world to build the event dating app, WillCalled.
“We are always looking to expand our team with talented, forward-thinking managers, which makes Lex the perfect fit for Big Loud,” says Big Loud partner/manager Chief Zaruk. “With an already proven skill set, we’re excited for the new ideas and opportunities he’ll bring, as well as work with the fresh artists coming along with him.”
“I’m beyond excited to be joining Big Loud / Maverick,” says Lipsitz. “I wanted to partner with a like-minded company that sets itself apart, fosters teamwork, and genuinely cares about making a difference in our ever-changing entertainment industry. I had no hesitation and am grateful for the opportunity to be on this progressive team.”
Big Loud was founded as a partnership between Craig Wiseman, Seth England, Zaruk, and Joey Moi, with song publishing, artist development, management, production, and promotion under one roof. The organization scored its first win when it helped launch the career of Florida Georgia Line, and in 2015 the partners expanded their firm with the creation of Big Loud Records, led by Clay Hunnicutt.
Big Loud’s management division has gone on to introduce breakout country talent Morgan Wallen, a new-school superstar whose first three singles have all gone Gold or Platinum, including back-to-back No. 1s “Up Down” (featuring Florida Georgia Line) and “Whiskey Glasses.” Big Loud also counts Chris Lane (“Fix”) on its management roster, along with HARDY, Dallas Smith and MacKenzie Porter.
