LONDON (CelebrityAccess) Stuart Camp, manager of Ed Sheeran, has announced he has amicably split with management company Rocket Music to form his independent, London-based Grumpy Old Management, taking Sheeran with him.
Camp joined Elton John’s Rocket Music in 2007 after working as a label exec at Atlantic Records. He signed Sheeran in 2011. He exits a joint venture with Rocket Music.
“Rocket was a great home to me for 10 years,” Camp said. “With invaluable support and care from Elton and everyone there, which I will always be grateful for.”
Elton John added, “After many incredible years of working together I would like to wish a heartfelt and fond farewell to Ed, Stuart and his team, with whom we have shared some amazing moments over nearly a decade long relationship,” said Sir Elton. “It has been a very rewarding and exciting experience supporting them through their fantastic journey. We are immensely proud of all our achievements together and look forward to seeing Stu’s company and Ed’s success go from strength to strength.”
Further contact information was sparse at press time.
Meanwhile, Rocket Music has expanded its operations. Music Week reported in September that it had set up a joint venture with Black Fox Management, which handles Rag ‘N’ Bone Man.
