Big Machine Label Group Adds 2, Ups 1
Big Machine Label Group has added Kaylan Moody and Josie Hardin to the marketing team as Start Team Lead and Digital Marketing Manager, respectively. The company has also promoted Flo Myerscough-Harris to Label Assistant, UK.
A graduate of the University of Florida, Moody started her career at the university-owned radio stations. She now joins BMLG following stops at WHHZ/Gainesville, Florida, and most recently as Associate Editor at All Access.
In her role, Hardin brings her marketing expertise from previous roles at Sophie Shear Vocal Studios and William Morris Endeavor following internships with Universal Music Group and Thirty Tigers.
Myerscough-Harris rises from Label Intern with the Big Machine UK team after gaining prior experience with Under The Apple Tree as a Production Assistant and NBCUniversal International as a Central PR & Communications Intern.
“We are excited to see the immediate impact that Kaylan and Josie are having with our artists,” says BMLG’s Executive Vice President Mike Rittberg. “Their work ethic and creativity has already been such an asset to our team. I am also thrilled to have Flo move into a full-time position with our UK team. There is really nothing better than seeing one of our interns grow within the company.”
Dark Shadow Recording Signs Laura Orshaw
Dark Shadow Recording has signed Grammy nominated fiddler and vocalist, Laura Orshaw. A two-time IBMA award-winning artist, and the first female to win SPBGMA Fiddle Player of the Year, Orshaw is currently working on her debut label project, due out in 2022.
Orshaw has toured throughout the world opening and sharing the stage with artists such as Del McCoury, Ricky Skaggs, John Scofield, Jim Lauderdale, Old Crow Medicine Show, Sarah Jarosz, Tony Trischka, Becky Buller, and Darol Anger among others.
“I’m beyond thrilled to be joining the Dark Shadow Recording family,” says Orshaw. “Although I’ve known Stephen and Jana (DSR Owners) for many years, my first chance to work with Stephen in the studio was in 2017 when my then fiancé, Tony Watt, and I recorded a duet version of Guy Clark and Shawn Camp’s ‘Magnolia Wind’… Stephen’s skills as a producer and engineer are truly awe-inspiring, but I am most impressed with his work coaching artists and creating an environment where they can do their best work. It’s an honor to join Stephen, Jana, and the rest of the DSR family!”
“Anyone who has heard Laura Orshaw play and sing knows she’s a powerhouse,” adds Dark Shadow recording owner Stephen Mougin. “In studio sessions, I’ve watched her inspire fellow musicians to ‘up their game’ because of her offerings to a tune, one of the many reasons I asked her to play on my own album. She has toured with a variety of bluegrass bands from modern to traditional and manages to sound perfectly at-home in every scenario. Beyond being a great human, Laura is a determined, hard-working, talented artist and I’m thrilled that she is joining the Dark Shadow Recording family.”
