BMLG and Hard 8 Working Group’s The Hard Working Record Company has inked Lillian Hepler.

The L.A.-based artist is the second to join the new joint venture, which launched in May as a Nashville-based, pop-focused imprint. 'Call Me Yours,' Hepler’s debut single on the label, is due on 10/20 and can be pre-ordered here.

“Simply stated, Lillian has all the right stuff,' said BMLG President/CEO/Founder, Scott Borchetta. 'She’s an incredibly talented singer and songwriter with a massive online following who uniquely connects with her peer group.” 

'Lillian is an absolutely gifted songwriter, singer, and performer,' added H8WG's Co-CEO/Co-Founder, Dirk Hemsath. 'I’m honored to be expanding our relationship, and I can’t wait for everyone to hear what she’s been creating.'

“I’m so grateful to Scott and Big Machine for giving me the opportunity to work alongside them in building this next chapter of my career,' Hepler states. 'I’m super excited to be with a team that shares my anticipation of what the future holds and supports me and my vision.”

Hailing from Utah, 22-year-old Hepler first began uploading covers at the age of 13 and penning original songs by 15. She’s since amassed millions of streams across singles like 'Nightmare' and 'Easy,” as well as garnered 2m+ TikTok followers.
