Arista Records Signs 15-Year-Old Kenzie (EXCLUSIVE)

Arista Records has signed 15-year-old kenzie, who is currently on tour with PrettyMuch and set to release a brand new song, “HOT,” on July 17.

The singer first found fame on the show “Dance Moms,” which also launched the career of her older sister Maddie Ziegler, dancing star of Sia’s videos. Both have a robust social media following, with kenzie nearing 13 million followers on Instagram and over 3 million subscribers on YouTube. Recently, some of the Ziegler clan competed on the TV game show “Family Feud.”

“We are so excited to welcome kenzie to the Arista family,” said David Massey, CEO of Arista, a subsidiary of Sony Music.  “At just 15 years old, she has built an incredible fanbase and possesses so much talent. We are looking forward to a very bright future together.”

At Arista, kenzie joins a roster that includes One Direction star Louis Tomlinson, Charlie Puth’s younger brother Stephen Puth, Dennis Lloyd and Smith & Thell, among others.

Born in Pittsburgh, kenzie (full name Mackenzie Ziegler) released her first album, “Mack Z,” through Kismet Music in  2014, following up four years later with the independently released “Phases,” featuring tracks written by Sia. She has a starring role on the high-school drama series “Total Eclipse” and competed on the ABC show “Dancing with the Stars: Juniors.”

Added kenzie, whose team includes Michelle Young Management and WME: “I’m so excited for this new adventure with Arista Records and David Massey. I can’t wait to celebrate on the road with my fans and for them to hear new music coming out very soon!”

Arista Records, founded by Clive Davis in 1974, was relaunched last year as part of Sony’s joint venture with former Island Records chief  Massey, who is CEO of the label.
