A&R Worldwide supported and featured artist Baker Grace recently signed a worldwide record deal with one of the world’s and Universal Music Group’s most successful record company’s, Republic Records (The Weeknd, Drake, Ariana Grande, Lorde, Lil Wayne and countless others). Baker Grace garnered offers from numerous major labels who discovered the artist this year, but signed with Jason Jordan, Sr. VP A&R, Republic Records.
Jordan, who was introduced to Baker Grace by Sat Bisla, Founder & President, A&R Worldwide, became an early believer in her right away while he was still President at Imagem Music during the summer of last year. Jordan presented Baker Grace to multi-Platinum songwriter/producer Scott Harris (Shawn Mendes, The Chainsmokers, Jessie J) who started writing together with the talented teen. Last summer, Jason moved to Republic Records as Sr. VP A&R and offered to sign her as soon as he heard the new songs resulting from the collaboration with Harris.
Baker Grace stated, “I'm so grateful for Sat’s [Bisla] support and wisdom. He taught me so much of what I needed to know about the industry and how to live up to my fullest potential and progress as an artist.”
Bisla added, “The first time I ever heard Baker Grace was back in 2015 when she was a young teenager. I knew there was something magical about her as an artist, songwriter, and as an individual; she reminded me so much of Bonnie McKee, whom I worked with, when she was also just 15 years-old. I’m extremely grateful to Baker Grace and her father Michael Baker who trusted myself and A&R Worldwide to guide and support her in the right way with key decisions - remaining patient and heeding and listening to our input and advice. I’m also very thankful to Jason Jordan for responding to me immediately regarding Baker Grace and for his tremendous belief and support of her. Also, I have to thank my entire team at A&R Worldwide [Monte Malone, Joe Arnold, Tyler Polzin, Josh Woodard, KC Morse) and producer Ryan Benyo for their input and contributions to Baker Grace.”
