Silverado Records today announces the signing of Nashville based singer-songwriter Mandy McMillan to multi-album deal with the label. McMillan, from Stony Plain, Alberta Canada, has been in Nashville since 2012, writing songs and performing across a wide swath of the South, and building a loyal core of fans. She also has tremendous support from Canadian fans, and frequently returns to Alberta for performances and charity events.
“Every once in a while you meet an artist you just know you want to work with from that first encounter. For us, that’s Mandy! Her songwriting, strong vocals, fun personality, and strong work ethic embody exactly what we look for in a recording artist,” said Silverado’s CEO Scott Thomas. “Mandy’s great original songs, and ability to captivate a room make her an incredible addition to Team Silverado” said Silverado VP/A&R Aaron Chesling.
She’s opened for several of Country’s big names like Trisha Yearwood, Craig Campbell, Maggie Rose and, in perhaps a foretelling of the future, once opened for now label-mate HISHat a Love Your Melon event. McMillan was a guest artist on the label’s 2016 holiday release, ‘A Silverado Family Christmas’, and recently performed on the label’s most recent live Silverado Signature Songwriter Series at Belcourt Taps in Nashville. Her most recent EP, self-titled, was released in 2014 (Check it out via Spotify.)
In Mandy’s own words: “I’m very happy to be a part of this team that’s more like family than anything else. Can’t wait to work along side Scott, Aaron, Heather and the rest of the amazing team at Silverado!”
