Mike Judy and Kevin Gales bring years of music industry experience together to create a dynamic and powerful team. The past decade has seen Mike Judy rise from humble beginnings as a local Mid-western musician to a national fixture within the music industry. As a concert promoter, he’s booked everyone from Fall Out Boy to Snoop Dogg. Moving forward with Easy Killer, Mike Judy cites talent and variance as chief factors in forming the roster. “When first discussing the direction we wanted to go with the label, the last thing we wanted to do was pigeon-hole ourselves by focusing on a relatively specific type of artist in terms of genre. Setting a low bar with reference to artistic integrity was also something we weren’t interested in pursuing. As things stand today, we’re beyond stoked to be coming out of the gate with such a diverse, skilled group of musicians.”


Kevin Gales, a finder of talent for over 20 years, in both Canada and the US has had tremendous success finding artists with little to no experience, and working with them to the point where they have a national presence, charting with both physical and digital sales. Kevin’s produced over 100 titles that have been released through a major label distributor and has managed the likes of Tidewater, Means, Emily Howard, Ashley Aucker, Raymond Gregory, Blind Witness, Becoming The Martyr, amongst others, bringing them to their first national chart success. On collaborating with Mike Judy, Gales states, “Our partnership totally is genuine. We really believe that if the two of us come to an agreement on something, we’re ready to go to war for whatever that is.”   


With a uniquely diverse roster, Easy Killer Records is one you will want to keep an eye on.
