Big Loud has hired Sara Knabe as SVP of A&R. Effective immediately, Knabe will work in tandem with both the Big Loud Records and Big Loud Publishing A&R teams, leading across.
“This is one of the most exciting announcements we’ve gotten to make in a while,” says Big Loud CEO/Partner, Seth England. “Sara was the first person I meaningfully met in Nashville; I got my first internship with her, and she helped me meet [Big Loud Partner] Craig [Wiseman]. We’ve been working with Sara in a freelance capacity for a while now, and have been continuously impressed by her professionalism, her collaborative approach, and her ear for finding outstanding talent. I’m not sure there is any one A&R person in Nashville who has brought me and Joey [Moi] more songs over the years. It is fitting and overdue that she joins our team.”
“When Seth reached out to me about this role the answer was a Big Loud YES,” Knabe shares. “The remarkable history of Big Loud speaks for itself. Joining their cutting-edge creative team and working alongside a roster of this magnitude, in both the Records and Publishing divisions, is a dream scenario.”
Knabe joins the Big Loud staff after spending just under a year founding and cultivating her own Cake Maker Music, a music publishing, artist development and A&R consulting company. Prior to founding Cake Maker Music, Knabe spent several years as VP of A&R at BBR Music Group and VP of Creative at BMG Music Publishing. The Belmont graduate’s prior stops include Bug Music, Windswept Holdings, LLC and Harlan Howard Songs.
