About a year and a half ago, I saw Chelsea Bain at Capone’s in Johnson City, Tenn. She opened the show for Bucky Covington that night. Talk about a high-energy performer! Chelsea definitely has that covered. Today I received a press release letting all of us know that Chelsea has signed with Bigger Picture Group. The press release has her labeled a ‘country female rocker’. After seeing her on stage, I could not agree more with that description of Chelsea and her music. She put on a great show, and it’s not hard to understand why her fan-base is growing daily. The press release is below.
Bigger Picture Group is pleased to announce the signing of Chelsea Bain to an exclusive worldwide recording agreement. One of Country music’s foremost female rockers, Chelsea headlined the Coca-Cola Stage at over 40 NASCAR races this year. She has performed in front of thousands of fans, and her popularity is evidenced by 160,000 Facebook friends.
"We are extremely happy to have Chelsea as part of the Bigger Picture family," said Bigger Picture Group CEO David Robkin. "She is an incredible artist, performer and young woman. We look forward to rocking with Chelsea in 2014."
"Work ethic, passion and drive mean a lot in this business, and Chelsea has all of them!" added Michael Powers, President of Bigger Picture Group. "We look forward to helping take her to a whole new level. We are proud to welcome Chelsea to our awesome family of artists at BPG."
Chelsea released her independent single "James Dean" earlier this year, and the corresponding music video made history when it premiered on the big screens and monitors around the Atlanta Motor Speedway in August. In addition to performing at NASCAR Camping World Truck races, Nationwide and Sprint Cup races and related events across the country, Chelsea also performed at NHRA races and opened for the likes of Tim McGraw, Brett Eldredge, Lonestar and others.
"I am so excited to be a part of the Bigger Picture Group family," said Chelsea. "It feels like just the right fit, and I’m very much looking forward to the new year."
In addition to Coca Cola and NASCAR, Chelsea has quietly managed to incorporate brand funding into her artist development plans. She has forged relationships with Bass Pro Shops, The NFL Network, FOX Sports 1 (formerly SPEED TV), FOX Sports Networks, and Root Sports, providing opportunities to license her music into NFL, MLB, NHL, NASCAR, and NCAA broadcasts.
