About SGM Records
SGM Records is an independent record label founded by Gary Brewer in 1988 in Louisville, KY. Brewer initially started SGM to re-release his back catalog. Aside from older projects, he also decided to capitalize on the fact that he had 100% creative control to release new recordings as well. In 2012, Gary’s oldest son Wayne Brewer became CEO of SGM, and his wife Alyssa Brewer later became COO in 2015. Since launching, Gary Brewer & the Kentucky Ramblers have been the main focus of SGM (releasing 29 studio albums), but the expansion of the label encouraged the group members to individually put out solo projects (including Gary’s grandfather Finley J. “Pap” Brewer Sr. who played with the original Carter Family in the 1920s, Gary’s father Finley J. Brewer Jr.’s “Truck Driving Man”, Wayne Brewer’s “The Kentucky Fiddler”, and Gary’s youngest son Mason Brewer’s “Monstrous Shadows”.) In 2020, with inspiration from their newly built recording studio, “Brewgrass Entertainment studios” (located in the SGM Records warehouse near the Louisville, KY area), Wayne and Mason Brewer discovered “the newest face in Outlaw Country”, CJ Sparks a Muhlenberg county, Ky. Native singer/songwriter. Wayne later signed Sparks to the SGM label in 2021 releasing his debut album “The Prodigal Son” co-written by Gary Brewer and produced by Wayne and Mason Brewer. With multiple artist deals currently in the works, be on the lookout for more upcoming ‘newly signed artists’ announcements in the near future from various genres.
