Dylan Gossett has signed with Big Loud Texas/Mercury Records in collaboration with Range Media Partners, with the fast-emerging 24-year-old continuing to establish himself as one of the most exciting new voices in country music.
The Texas native recently released his debut EP, No Better Time, which has been met with acclaim from fans and critics alike, with Gossett having stormed onto the scene earlier in the year through the viral success of his introspective anthem, ‘Coal’.
Speaking ahead of the unveiling, Miranda Lambert, one of the co-founders of Big Loud Texas, underlined her excitement at the prospect of working with Dylan Gossett as his ascent accelerates, “When I first heard Dylan's song ‘Coal’, I played it a few times because I wanted to catch all the ways he was sharing his life with us. To write and deliver something that is complex yet elegant lyrically and to also make it vulnerable is an art. After Jon [Randall] and I spent time with Dylan, we both agreed he is an artist Big Loud Texas was created to champion and support”.
Seth England, Big Loud's CEO, echoed Miranda Lambert's sentiments, “Dylan's the kind of artist we are passionate about developing and investing in at Big Loud - a songwriter's songwriter and incredible vocal talent who's got something compelling to say through his music. Thrilled to have him as the flagship artist launching our newest venture, Big Loud Texas, and honored to be part of telling his story”.
Tyler Arnold, President of Mercury Records, added, “I couldn’t be more excited to welcome Dylan into the Mercury family. He’s an incredible artist and songwriter, and it’s been a really memorable process getting to know him over the last few months. We truly believe he’s going to be a game changing artist for this generation".
Dylan Gossett is the first artist to be welcomed to the Big Loud Texas family, with Miranda Lambert and Jon Randall having launched their new imprint in early November.
Given the momentum that Dylan Gossett seems to build with every release, it's safe to say the country-Americana prodigy will have plenty of eyes keenly watching to see what he does next, with the hope being that Gossett has a full-length album in the works.
