LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Music management company ie:music has hired veteran talent exec Leander Gloversmith in a bid to diversify the company’s roster.
According to Complete Music Update, Gloversmith will be based in the company’s Los Angeles offices ie:west and report to its President Michael Loney.
Gloversmith’s roster includes the pop-punk band Neck Deep, the post-hardcore group As It Is and metalers Frost Koffin.
“It is a privilege to be part of a company with such an effusive legacy, who continue to evolve and remain a source of ideas and creativity”, says Gloversmith in a statement.
“A lot is said about the diminished state of this scene”, he goes on, “yet ie:music are doubling down on rock and metal as we believe it to be in rude health, birthing some of the most exciting and creative artists around, many of whom are quietly ascending to arena headline status without a drop of mainstream support. Paired with its passionate, multi-generational audiences, this is truly a world of lifers, on and off-stage,” he continued
“We are delighted to welcome Leander and his roster to the ie:music family. He has proved time and again that he has an eye for what’s next. His roster will be able to avail of our world-class artist services team who will apply experience developed across ie:music’s other artists to maximise their potential,” Loney added.
