Rising singer-songwriter Kyle Clark has signed with Daschent for management, WME for booking and Stem for distribution. The news comes on the heels of his sophomore EP release, I Hope It’s Hot Out…Again.
Clark, a Georgia native, moved to Nashville in 2019 and has since garnered cuts from Jon Pardi, Lily Rose, Mitchell Tenpenny, Restless Road and Filmore. Despite the difficulties of starting his music career during the pandemic, Clark found viral success with “Hope It’s Hot Out” in 2022. The track has amassed nearly 30 million collective streams since its release.
His new seven-track EP, I Hope It’s Hot Out…Again, includes previously released tunes “You Don’t Think About That,” “Bad Day to Be a Beer” and the title track, as well as three new songs “Hair Down,” “Tonight I Do” and “Waitin’ All Day.” Notably, in an effort to compensate his co-writers fairly, Clark gives a portion of the master to them.
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with KC since he arrived on Music Row, and have no doubt that what he has accomplished in such a short amount of time in town (and despite a global pandemic) is just the tip of the iceberg,” says Dane Schmidt, Founder and Owner of Daschent. “There are so many positive things to be said about Kyle as a songwriter and artist, but it’s who he is as a human being, his values, work ethic, and love for his family and fiance we’re most proud to represent. We look forward to continuing our journey together with Morgan, Jeff and the amazing folks at WME and STEM joining us on what’s going to be a fun ride.”
“Kyle Clark’s brand of country music is one that audiences can’t help but love,” adds STEM’s Country Head of Artist Relations Jeff Tobias. “STEM is thrilled to be working alongside Kyle and the daschent team as they roll out this next wave of exciting new music.”
Clark ended 2022 on tour with Matt Stell and Cooper Alan, and kicked off 2023 on the road with Tyler Farr, Spencer Crandall and Tyler Braden.
“Kyle is one of the most genuine artists out there,” says WME’s Morgan Kenney. “You cannot catch him without a smile. That translates to his touring. His sets not only bring a smile, but upbeat and fun as well. I’m looking forward to his future ahead with WME.”
“I am so excited to announce my partnership with Daschent, STEM, and WME,” says Clark of the signings. “It’s an incredible feeling to know I’m working with people who believe in what I’m building. In this industry, it’s not just about making great music, it’s also about surrounding yourself with great people too. I truly feel like I am surrounding myself with the right pieces that will help continue the growth of my career.”
