I.R.S. Records Nashville Signs Muddy Magnolias

I.R.S. Records Nashville signing of new duo Muddy Magnolias, was announced by company president John Grady. Dynamic singer/songwriters Jessyca Wilson, a native of Brooklyn NY, and Mississippi transplant Kallie North join label mates Striking Matches, Marc Scibilia and the late Cowboy Jack Clement’s For Once And For All project.

“I honestly could not be more excited about a signing,” said Grady who opened I.R.S. Records Nashville in late 2013. “There is amazing music to be made here, and we’re going to make it. We just might make history.”

Though relatively new on the Nashville music scene, Muddy Magnolias quickly created a stir with their sister-like harmonies, insightful original songs and commanding stage performances. In its “37 Best Things We Saw at CMA Music Fest 2014” feature, Rolling Stone Country listed the twosome as “Best Unsigned Duo.” The article opined, “Blending Wilson’s New York R&B background (she’s written songs for John Legend and Fantasia) with Kallie’s Texas-to-Mississippi origins, the newly-formed duo capitalizes on powerhouse vocals, no-holds-barred harmonies and a vibe that’s like the Band Perry raised on Aretha Franklin – performed as if Mick Jagger and Keith Richards inhabited the Indigo Girls.”
