In her new role, Mathews will oversee operations for Hailey Whitters, a recent Make Wake signee jointly managed by Chris Kappy and Make Wake and Matt Graham’s Los Angeles-based BRND Mgmt, home to Midland, Corey Harper, Desure and more.
“I knew after our first meeting that I had to bring Alicia on board the Make Wake team,” said Kappy, Make Wake Artists’ Chief Navigation Officer. “Her diverse background, passion and work ethic make her an incredible asset, and we are so happy to have her.”
A native of Chattanooga, TN, Mathews got her start in the entertainment industry in A&R at Big Machine Label Group and also worked in Business Affairs at Universal Music Group Nashville and in Label Operations for Iconic Entertainment.

Working with an artist as talented, dedicated, and persistent as Hailey is a dream come true and I’m so excited to partner with her on this journey.”
