Drake White signs with Dot
Friday, June 20, 2014
– Soulful singer-songwriter Drake White signed with Dot Records, it was announced today.
"Drake White is one of the most dynamic live performers I have ever seen," said General Manager Chris Stacey. "He is a phenomenal songwriter and a powerhouse vocalist. I believe he can be a force in today's musical landscape, and I welcome him to the Dot Records' family."
The Alabama native has a rock-infused country sound.
"All an artist could ever ask for is at Dot," White said. "Excitement surrounds the revitalization of this nostalgic name, and the band and I are ecstatic to be working with this team! I want to be around dreamers, people that are not afraid to push boundaries. It's gonna be a great ride with this diverse, talented family. Scott (Borchetta, head of Big Machine) is a doer, and Chris has great ears and a straight shooting gun. I'm so blessed to be working with these great folks."
White released his debut single, "Simple Life," last year on MCA Nashville.
The label was revived earlier this year under the Big Machine Label Group umbrella. Female duo Maddie & Tae, who were the inaugural act announced, will release their debut single this summer.
