British-based artist manager James Brown has this week announced the launch of a new classical music artist management agency, James Brown Management (JBM).
Based in Cambridge, England and established by former managers from the now liquidated Hazard Chase, the new agency will represent conductors, instrumental soloists and vocal ensembles.
JBM's roster will include violinist Viviane Hagner, cellist Laura van der Heijden, conductors Olli Mustonen, Caros Izacray, Matthew Halls, Alpesh Chauhan and Anthony Marwood and pianist Benjamin Grosvenor.
“It has been a very difficult few months for everyone in the music industry and of course for those of us involved with Hazard Chase, both artists and staff ..." James has this week told The Violin Channel.
"The support we have received from across the sector has meant a great deal to us and I have been very touched by the numerous messages encouraging me to return to the agency world ... I am a great believer in the resilience of classical music and I am pleased to do so, albeit on a rather different scale,” he has said.
