Texas country artist Randy Rogers is expanding his presence in the music industry by launching a brand new artist management company.
Rogers’ new company, Big Blind Management, was named after his constant commitment to staying in the game, no matter how stacked the odds may be.
“If you’re going to succeed, you have to be committed to being in the game.” Rogers said in a press release. “We are.”
Although this new endeavor is a challenging one, Rogers says he was inspired to start the company after years of observing the difficult but rewarding work of his own manager.
“Starting a management company is something that I have been thinking about for quite some time,” Rogers shared. “Because our band tours so much, I have the opportunity to meet many talented people on the road. My goal is to help some of these artists in understanding the lesson I learned a long time ago from my friend Kent Finlay: ‘There’s music and then there’s the music business.’ Robin Schoepf, my partner in the management company, has been my personal day-to-day manager for more than 13 years. We have seen it all and are interested in working alongside artists we believe in.”
Rogers’ first signee to Big Blind Management is rising Texas singer-songwriter Red Shahan. Much like Rogers, Shahan has become a fixture of the expansive Texas touring circuit in recent years.
“Red has a uniqueness in his approach to songwriting and performing that we feel will soon propel him into the spotlight he deserves,” Rogers explains. “He’s one of the guys that will make great records for some time to come.”
