LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Gus Brandt’s management company Cardiff Giant announced the expansion of their Los Angeles office with the hiring of the veteran label and marketing exec Jake Lowry.
According to Music Week, Lowry will step in to oversee Cardiff’s Los Angeles offices after more than a decade toiling at Vagrant/BMG where he was the label’s marketing director.
While at Vagrant, Lowry led marketing campaigns for Blink-182’s No.1 album “California” in 2016, as well as for artists such as The Hold Steady, Stars, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Eels and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros.
“Working with Gus on the last Blink182 album was a real eye opener,” Lowry told Music Week. “It’s amazing to work with someone who knows so much about the industry – what Gus doesn’t know isn’t worth knowing. I am excited to be working with him and can’t wait to see what this year brings.”
Founded in 2009, Cardiff Giant currently manages Blink 182 (in partnership with Deckstar), Mark Hoppus, Against Me! and Laura Jane Grace.
