“Like just about everyone else on the planet, I’ve been a fan of Liam’s voice since I first heard it, and I’m thrilled to be a part of his evolution as an artist,” Jeff Castelaz, CEO of Dangerbird said. “Beady Eye is a fresh new act with its own sound, and we’re honored to have them join Dangerbird’s gang.”
