Our Story

Big Timber Entertainment was created when Wausau business executive Troy Brown and Nashville producer/music director Mark Oliverius realized they had a superb working synergy and a shared vision to help and nurture emerging young performers succeed in their careers. BTE provides record production, distribution, management and corporate/theater live show production under one roof. 

Meet Managing Partner Troy Brown:


Troy Brown is a veteran business executive of a prominent global hardwood lumber company in Wisconsin. The name Big Timber Entertainment is influenced by his passion for the timber industry. He holds a B.S. degree in Accounting and an MBA with an emphasis In Quality Management.

A guitar player himself, Troy is a life-long music lover of all genres.  His first memories have music tied to them.  Growing up in the heyday of vinyl, as a very small child, Troy would beg his mother to play his favorite records. As he got older and received an allowance, he remembers spending all his money buying 45’s of his favorite songs and play them for hours on a small, portable record player.

Troy and Mark look forward to growing Big Timber Entertainment into a artist-centric powerhouse record label and entertainment company!
