Iron Gate Records Signs EllieMae
Nashville, Tennessee Nov 23, 2021 (Issuewire.com) - Iron Gate Records has signed EllieMae to the label. Country artist and former Voice contestant bring her honest lyrics, musicality, and youthful energy to the label. Mark A. Skoda, CEO stated, "EllieMae is the sound of a new country with her roots firmly planted in country music's origins. She is fresh, young, and represents the kind of new artists we look for in the label. We are pleased to have her join us and look forward to her new single."
The heart and the heritage of country music and farming are intertwined in EllieMae. Born and raised in Southern Idaho, EllieMae is familiar with the dirt roads that led to both harvest and song lyrics. As a songwriter, EllieMae writes what she knows: country life, family, love, and loss. She’s the best part of the country–good music and incredible storytelling. EllieMae’s gumption is evident from the first note she sings. Her lyrics are thoughtful, and relatable with a touch of sass.
EllieMae commented, "I am excited to be joining Iron Gate Records and look forward to furthering my career. I'll be releasing my first single under the label in the next week. "Christmas Makes Me Sad" is about how the holidays often make us feel the loss of relationships more intensely. The song is a collaboration with Gina Jones and Dennis Weber of Iron Gate Records. And I look forward to releasing more music in the new year!"
EllieMae has opened for a number of country artists over her short career. She has also performed at numerous festivals and fairs throughout the midwest and in her home state of Idaho.
