Social Family Records signs Kirsty Lee Akers

Australian country musician Kirsty Lee Akers has inked a licensing deal with Social Family Records.

The new deal covers her next two album releases, which will see her release albums number five and six.

Akers recorded her first EP at age 16 and graduated from the Academy of Country Music and the Talent Development Project.

“A lot of hard work has gone into creating my new album and it takes a great team to make great things happen,” she said. “I’m so excited to be working with Social Family Records and I look forward to what the future holds!”

Critically acclaimed Akers is the only artist to take out the Telstra Road to Discovery (2006), Toyota Star Maker (2007) AND a Golden Guitar (2008) in the space of two years.

“Kirsty Lee Akers is a welcome addition to SFR in 2018, said Social Family Records label manager & head of PR & publicity Nardia Drayton.

“A super talented, motivated and hard-working artist, we’re extremely excited to be working with Kirsty on her forthcoming releases and helping her expand on the success of her previous albums.”

She joins a Social Family Records roster that includes Gretta Ziller, Andrew Swift, Jetty Road, Hayley Jensen, Jason Owen, Matt Scullion, Kristy James and more.
