Frazier discovered Bailey Zimmerman
Artist manager Scott Frazier has been a music industry professional for 23 years and counting. If his career was a person, they’d be old enough to get into a rock club and buy you a beer, but they shouldn’t expect Frazier to get them past the velvet rope. Frazier has spent his entire career based in Louisville, Kentucky, preferring to raise his family in his hometown instead of transplanting to Nashville, New York or LA.
Frazier’s career highlight reel boasts triumphs like discovering active-rock mainstay Saving Abel and bringing the band from local club acts to multi-platinum arena rock status, and doing the same for Grammy-nominated, world-beating Danish metal troupe Volbeat.
Frazier joined management company 10th Street Entertainment four years ago and has been continuing to crush it. Frazier’s latest signing is rising country heat seeker Bailey Zimmerman, a 22-year-old singer from Southern Illinois, whom he discovered on TikTok. Frazier reached out to longstanding friend and colleague, Chief Zaruk and ultimately did a co-management and strategic partnership with Zaruk and Simon Tikhman of The Core Entertainment with 10th Street Entertainment. From there, he signed Zimmerman to Warner Music Nashville and Elektra Records. Bailey’s first single, “Fall In Love” went straight to No. 1 at country radio and is certified Gold in the United States and Canada. Bailey’s debut EP Leave The Light On was the biggest streaming country debut of all time.
Frazier spoke to us while en route to a studio in Los Angeles earlier this week. We chat about his career and how he went from managing Saving Abel and Volbeat to discovering Bailey. Other 10th Street Management clients handled by their LA, NY, and London offices include Mötley Crüe, Blondie, Five Finger Death Punch and more.
