LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — ICM Partners announced they have formed a partnership with Joel Madden, co-founder of the band Good Charlotte that will seek to identify and help develop emerging artists and music industry brands.
The new collaboration will seek to leverage ICM Partners infrastructure, scope and artist services with Madden to bring new talent to the agency, offer creative services to clients, and develop new avenues of business for the company.
Madden, who helped to found Good Charlotte with his twin brother Benji in 1996, spent the following two decades building the band and a global touring business, as well as finding success in writing/recording/producing music, and TV.
“The agents we have worked with at ICM share our passion and entrepreneurial spirit for artist representation,” said Joel Madden. “We have the opportunity to create something very special which I am excited about and believe will be very impactful in supporting the growth and success of artists. Helping build creative businesses and brands is an idea both myself and ICM believe in and want to help artists achieve.
“Joel is a force of nature in the music and pop culture worlds and a uniquely gifted artist and entrepreneur who we are excited to be in business with and grateful to our colleague Mike Hayes who was at the genesis of our relationship with Joel and a driving force,” said Rob Prinz, Co-Head of Worldwide Music for ICM Partners.
