LONDON (CelebrityAccess) – Former Muse tour director Glen Rowe has launched a new management company called Kyoto. It follows the launch of Rowe’s grassroots live charity initiative, the Neko Trust.
Kyoto is designed to support all aspects of an artist’s early career and includes guidance on A&R, live development, design and digital, publishing and marketing.
Alongside the management portion of the company, Kyoto is also launching a recording studio, rehearsal studio and writing room. Located on a 22-acre farm just outside London, the studios are now open for booking to all artists, with those under Kyoto management having free access to the space.
Of his latest venture, Rowe recently told MusicWeek: “We want to work with acts who know their sound and make you feel alive when they play. We love artists acts that buck trends, those are the ones we’re going help to realise their massive, bold ambitions. We’ve built a world-class recording studio, because we want to give raw emerging talent the opportunity to be creative – without worrying about the cost. The UK has always punched above its weight with big bands, and at Kyoto we plan to keep that tradition alive.”
Rowe has toured with a number of bands including Manic Street Preachers, The Thrills, Ronnie Wood, Hard-Fi, The Kooks, The Magic Numbers and Amy MacDonald. He spent 18 years traveling the world with Muse as their tour director.
