Sam Hollyman Pens Deal With KEMC Records (IRL)
UK sensational talent Sam Hollyman has just signed a deal with KEMC Records (IRL) who will help Sam develop his career and launch his music to the commercial market in The UK and Ireland in the coming weeks.
Hollyman appeared on stage with Michael Buble at the tender age of fifteen which led to appearances on Good Morning America and a special feature on E News on the E Channel World wide. Since then he has gone on to appear on The Voice (UK). Sam caught the attention of CMR Nashville CEO Lee Williams "The first time I met Sam was at the 2013 BCM Awards with his American producer Justin Johnson. Johnson gave me a demo album and talked about Sam. A couple of days later I listened to the tracks and enjoyed the fresh new original songs by Sam and Justin. It was also great to see that this sound was actually recorded in Liverpool with British musicians" states Lee.
The CMA International Broadcaster of the year researched Sam some more and realized he was the fan who got up on stage with Michael Buble which went on YouTube with nearly 8 million views to date, he turned down Britain's Got Talent, but appeared on the Voice last year. Williams spoke with Sam Hollyman on the phone and they decided to put a single "Where I Wanna Be" out to radio which went to #1 in the UK Country Hotdisc Chart for three weeks and #2 for four weeks and counting. While this was happening Lee met with Sam and his family and agreed to manage him.
Following the new management agreement the CMR Nashville CEO confirmed a record and publishing deal for Hollyman with KEMC Records and KEMC Music in The Republic of Ireland. Good things are on the way this year with a new single release, Debut Album and a trip to Nashville already on the cards for this very talented Singer/Songwriter from the North West of England.
"After seeing the works and abilities of Lee Williams I am thoroughly looking forward to the new experiences and events to come through KEMC Records and Lee, with the happenings and especially the people that have lead to this next level in my life already being pretty awesome! I cant wait to see what Lee and his guys have in store for me" states Sam.
