“It has been great getting to know Edo, he shares the same strong work ethic and value set that Milk & Honey is built upon — he was immediately the right decision. I’ve been coming to Amsterdam for the past 5 years and love the music, the culture and the people. From our first trip, we had been discussing opening an office to further focus on electronic music and the great songwriters and producers not just in the Netherlands but all throughout Europe. Managing Oliver Heldens was our first real entrance into the market, and both Oliver, his local team and the community have been so welcoming, that we were anxious to do more. Amsterdam is an important next step in Milk & Honey’s priority of becoming a global music company, and our UK / European clients will be integrated with our American presence in a way that no other management company can offer,” said Milk & Honey founder and President Lukas Keller.
“I’m very excited to work with Lucas Keller and his formidable team at Milk+Honey. I’ve been a fan of their work for the last few years, so when the opportunity came to join forces I didn’t hesitate. I look forward to being able to further expand the careers of my current clients within the Milk+Honey framework and excited about growing the Amsterdam office over the months ahead with new signings and building our team of managers,” added Van Duijn.
