Big Machine Music and six-time GRAMMY®-nominee Brandy Clark’s All BC Music last night announced a joint music publishing venture at the GRAMMY Museum Experience Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. The fusion of established success and unbridled creativity is a solid combination of BMM’s heavyweight reputation and inspirational focus of All BC Music. An ideal space for this promising young talent to flourish, the inaugural signing is emerging singer/songwriter Lauren Weintraub.
“Lauren is a smart, evocative, musical storyteller whose music sits effortlessly at the intersection of credibility and commerciality,” said BMM’s General Manager Mike Molinar. “Her natural craft is far beyond her age and she embodies all that our team could ever hope to find in a young talent. I’m incredibly excited that Lauren has chosen Brandy Clark and Big Machine Music as her publishing partners.”
Clark shared, “I feel honored, excited and incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to work with a singer songwriter whose talent blows me away a little more with every new song I hear. I only hope to help encourage and guide Lauren along her own unique artistic path and can’t wait for the rest of the world to hear what we’ve all been discovering.”
Weintraub moved from Boston, MA to Nashville in 2017 to attend the Curb School of Entertainment and Music Business at Belmont University and shortly thereafter began to receive critical recognition. She won the 2018 Recording Academy/Grammy U contest with “Careful Now,” while her “If You Were Gonna Leave Anyway” entry for NPR Music’s 2019 Tiny Desk Contest earned a “Top Shelf” designation from a panel of judges including GRAMMY® Award winner Jason Isbell. Nashville Songwriters Association International recently named Weintraub “One To Watch,” in addition to an honorable mention in the 19th Annual NSAI Song Contest presented by CMT and Martin Guitars & Strings.
“I am beyond thrilled about this unique opportunity to work closely with Big Machine Music and Brandy Clark,” said Weintraub. “To be the first artist signed as a part of this joint venture is extremely special to me and something that I feel so incredibly honored to be a part of as I continue crafting my stories through each song.”
