Singer-songwriter and NBC’s Songland winner Griffen Palmer has signed with Big Loud Records.
An Ontario native, Palmer grew up in a musical family, with early influences including John Mayer, Kings of Leon, Elton John, The Eagles and Bruce Hornsby. His father bought him a drum kit in elementary school and soon after, the Palmer found himself writing originals of his own.
Discovering a love for country music during college at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, Palmer played dive bars around campus, refining his performing and writing skills. Shortly after graduation, he was introduced to songwriter Geoff Warburton at a house party, and the two formed a creative partnership.
Palmer signed a publishing deal with Big Loud Publishing in 2019, shortly after relocating to Nashville. He soon began landing cuts with Florida Georgia Line, Keith Urban, The Band Camino, Chelsea Cutler, Jade Eagleson, and more.
“Griffen is an incredible talent, and we couldn’t be more proud to keep him in the Big Loud family as a recording artist,” says Big Loud Partner/CEO Seth England. “His music is representative of who he is: thoughtful, strong, complex, nuanced. We can’t wait for everyone to get to know and love him the same way we do.”
“Big Loud has been my home in Nashville since day one,” shares Palmer. “Everyone in the building has been so supportive of me these past few years as I’ve been developing my songwriting and figuring out my next steps as an artist. Waking up every day in this town and creating with a team like this behind me is an absolute dream, and I can’t wait to start this new chapter by rolling out the music.”
In 2020, Palmer won his episode of NBC’s Songland after collaborating with Shane McAnally, Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard on the romantic ballad, “Second Guessing.” The rising wordsmith is releasing his solo version of the song as his Big Loud Records debut single this Friday (Jan. 13). His full-length debut album will arrive later this year.
