Sam Palladio has signed with Red Light Management for worldwide representation. He is co-managed by Chip Dorsch in the company’s Nashville office, and Jessica Lord in London.
The actor/musician grew up in Cornwall England, but it was in Music City that Palladio got his big break playing the role of Gunnar Scott on ABC’s hit TV drama Nashville. Palladio has performed on many of the world’s most iconic stages including the Ryman Auditorium, Red Rocks, The Royal Albert Hall, The Roundhouse, and The O2 Arena. In 2018 he opened for Biffy Clyro on their European tour.
Palladio spent the past two years collaborating with acclaimed British songwriters such as Ed Harcourt, Jonny Lattimer and Nick Hodgson. At the start of 2021, he teamed with Søren Hansen (of New Politics), Paul DeVincenzo and Grammy-winning producer Dave Sardy to record songs for his upcoming debut album.
“I’ve been blessed with an acting career that has allowed me to wear many hats and tell many stories,” shares Palladio. “Music has always been my passion and a driving force for my creativity—from guitar lessons at 5 to garage bands in my teens. I dedicated this last couple of years to songwriting and trying to find my own unique voice. Drawing back the curtain, letting people in on family relationships, tragedies and telling my own story—that’s something that I’ve never done before until now. I’m incredibly excited about this next chapter and to be building the team that will help me share my music with the world.”
“Sam is a perfect example of what is happening musically in Nashville now—a melding of many styles of music,” says Dorsch. “The approach for him sonically, visually and holistically will be rooted in his British and US influences. It is our hope that he will simultaneously be one of Music City’s greatest imports and greatest exports. We are incredibly excited to be working with such a well-rounded artist to help bring his music to life.”
Lord adds, “One of the many reasons Sam is such an exciting and interesting artist is his potential to connect with audiences both sides of the Atlantic (and further afield!). His upbringing in the UK and domicile in the US are ever-present in the music, the approach and in Sam’s ambition to reach fans globally. The opportunity for managers to work together from different parts of the world, Nashville and London in this case, is part of the ethos of Red Light—finding like-minded people to help create the best possible opportunities for our artists.”
