BMLG Records Signs Greylan James
BMLG Records, a subsidiary of HYBE America, has announced the signing of Greylan James, a 26-year-old from Knoxville, Tennessee. James joins the imprint’s roster which includes Lady A, Brett Young, Riley Green, Chris Janson and Shane Proffitt.
James was performing around East Tennessee by his early teenage years. Since moving to Music City eight years ago, he has earned cuts from Kenny Chesney (“Happy Does”), Chris Young (“If That Ain’t God), and Cole Swindell (“How Is She”) among others. Following his independently released EP, I Hope She Hears These, James shares his newest track “Undermine” via BMLG. He is represented by Morris Higham Management and WME in Nashville.
“When I was 14 years old, I wrote and mailed Scott Borchetta a letter that told him who I was and why he should sign me,” shares James. “For some reason, I just always had a feeling Scott was going to be part of my career. Now 12 years later, I can’t believe I get to work with him and the incredible BMLG team. “Thank you, Scott, Allison Jones, Julian Raymond, Jimmy Harnen, Ryan Dokke, Andrew Kautz and the rest of the crew for taking this chance on me. I can’t wait for the world to hear what we’re working up and hope folks enjoy ‘Undermine’ in the meantime. I know they’ve been asking for it for a while.”
“This is such an amazing signing! Talk about ‘manifesting’… that Greylan has had the vision and desire to be with Big Machine since he was a young boy is just incredible,” says Scott Borchetta, BMLG Chairman and CEO. “He’s become one of the best young writers in Nashville and his recording career is now lined up to follow his writing success in short order. Welcome to the Machine, Greylan!”
“We had the pleasure of having Greylan play us his huge collection of songs earlier this year and were blown away,” says Harnen, BMLG Records’ President/CEO. “He has an incredibly fresh approach to his writing, yet his body of work is so right at the core. Be sure to check out his killer live show and guitar virtuoso this spring while he’s tour with Old Dominion!”
James will appear at the Big Machine Distillery on March 24 before joining Old Dominion’s “No Bad Vibes Tour,” kicking off next Friday, March 31.
