Zandi Holup has signed a label deal with Big Loud Records.
Holup’s first single, “Gas Station Flowers,” arrives Oct. 6, and was produced by Al Torrence, producer and guitarist in Charles Wesley Godwin‘s backing band, The Allegheny High, who also played on the recording.
A Pennsylvania native, Holup began writing songs when she was 12. She spent time in the Northeast and on the west coast before relocating to Nashville six years ago to pursue her musical dreams. Inspired by the folk singer-songwriter movement of the 1960s, her true-to-life lyrics and affinity for melancholy are no surprise, citing trailblazers Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Dolly Parton as her musical heroes.
“After no more than 10 seconds into hearing Zandi sing for the first time, I knew in my bones that I had to find a way to support, champion and collaborate with her,” shares Nate Yetton, Big Loud VP of A&R. “We are so thrilled that she’s chosen to entrust her prolific artistry and treasure trove of repertoire to us here at Big Loud.”
“Finding and developing great talent is critical to the Big Loud way,” says Seth England, Big Loud CEO/Partner. “Zandi has a truly unique voice and sharp pen. We’re honored and excited to invest in her development and help bring her songs and her perspective to the world.”
“I feel blessed to be working with a record label that doesn’t try to intervene with my creation but gives me the tools to create my art in a larger way,” shares Holup. “From the beginning, Big Loud has seen me for who I am, my vision and never asked for me to change, but to keep going while they support me.”
