Fresh off his “5 Drinks Ago” cut as a producer on Hip-Hop icon Nelly’s HEARTLAND head-turner, Australian songwriter Jordan Dozzi has signed his first publishing deal with Big Loud, effective immediately.

"Big Loud Publishing is a family that I'm absolutely stoked to be a part of. Joining a company in town with so many talented writers is inspiring and makes you just want to be better. That and the emphasis on a lyric that Nashville has,” shares Dozzi. “I’m just feeling very thankful for this new team and the support of my family for helping me get here. Really excited to get to work!"

Raised in a house chock-full of talent with his parents and three sisters all musicians, Dozzi originally relocated to Nashville, TN, two years ago on a Division 1 soccer scholarship with Belmont University. However, the former music business student officially hung up his cleats in April 2020 after tearing his ACL. Dedicating himself to his songwriting craft full-time, the now 23-year-old Brisbane native is a skilled topliner with heartfelt lyrics who produces genre-blending tracks full of flavor.

“Immediately after meeting with Jordan it was evident how passionate and dedicated he was about songwriting. We were impressed with how he was booking his own writing sessions and turning around demos while maintaining his schedule as a full-time D1 student-athlete,” adds Big Loud Publishing’s Michael Giangreco, Senior Director, A&R. “To be as musically talented as he is and working that hard, we knew we had to work with him. Welcome to the Big Loud Publishing family, Jordan!”
