Dollyhood Records Signs To Sony For Distribution
The Macon, Ga. based label known as Dollyhood Records, has been making its mark in the South since the 90s, being the driving force behind some of the biggest records coming out of the Dirty South. CEO D. Banks makes the move to be distributed by Sony Music’s The Orchard giving his label backing from a major entity in the music industry. The signature deal will bridge the gap for emerging and indie artists in South Georgia’s very own Macon, Ga and its surrounding cities.
Dollyhood’s front running artist Devontaii has been releasing music consistently and even breaking the top 40 charts on iTunes for R&B, sealing the already massive catalog for Dollyhood Records and bringing the already established name to a bigger height.
The record label was founded by D. Banks in 1996 with some of its early releases being with popular Southern rapper Sonny Spoon, with song “Dirty Bird”. Artist Drip Goo another Macon, Ga. native is also under the Dollyhood umbrella making a stride of over a quarter million streams on Apple Music alone. As the label releases new music now under the Sony umbrella and continues to make waves in the music and entertainment industry, households around the world will see more of Dollyhood Records.
The label is currently looking for new talent to develop and distribute in the South Georgia area and with so many aspiring and talented artists that are overlooked just because of where they are located it has definitely become a huge positive for the Macon, GA. area and it’s community.
