Bay Area singer-songwriter Marc E. Bassy announced Thursday (July 11) the launch of his own independent label New Gold Medal, and he’s starting his latest venture as a dual solo artist and label head with a track that could serve as a mission statement. On the heels of his first 2019 offering “Save Me”, Bassy debuts the lead single “Die Hard,” off his forthcoming independent album (due out this summer – TBA), which premiered via Billboard.

“The movie ‘Die Hard’ was playing in the background at the studio while I was writing one day,” expressed Marc. “At this same time, quitting a couple bad habits had been weighing heavily on my mind and the idea just really developed from there!”
After being fully integrated into the major system and signed to Republic, even before releasing his debut album ‘Gossip Columns’, Bassy made the decision to take back control and create his own destiny. His journey to self-discovery lead to the development of New Gold Medal, an independent label founded by Bassy and his team. With their advantage of obtaining valuable knowledge from having learned from past experiences navigating the major label system, the New Gold Medal team has a great understanding of what is needed to succeed.
“Being an artist at Republic was a great experience. My team there was incredible, they fully supported me the whole way and jump-started my career as a solo artist. After a few years there it was time to go down a new path and take ownership of the music,” remarks Marc.
The name New Gold Medal was coined by partner Count Bassy and is inspired by the music industry is portrayed, it’s not about your bottom line and who has the biggest cars and jewelry anymore, but instead, it’s about who is inspiring and who is wearing their heart and soul on their sleeve in a way that shows skill and commitment.
On June 12, Bassy hit the road with Jon Bellion on an extensive 35-city North American amphitheater tour, titled The Glory Sound Prep Tour.
