Bucks Music Group has announced the launch of a management division headed up by new talent manager Anthony Hippsley.
Anthony has been appointed as talent manager and is tasked with the day to day running of Bucks Music Management, a new division of the company aimed at signing artists, producers, songwriters and mix engineers to the company.
He brings with him producer and writer Jordan Riley who has been working with some of the UK’s top up and coming artists including Leo Standard, Callum Scott, Dakota and Keir as well as renowned songwriters such as Guy Chambers, James Newman, Martin Brammer and Jenn Decilveo.
Anthony said: ‘I am excited to start Bucks Music Management and partner with the UK’s strongest independent publisher to offer management and the chance to work with great artists, producers, writers and mix engineers to see their goals accomplished.’
Sarah Liversedge, Bucks’ director of creative A&R, said: ‘The time feels perfect for Bucks Music Group to branch out and develop a new management venture. Anthony first came onto my radar a couple of years ago at our Bucks writing camp at Rak Studios – he was guest bass guitarist in a session with our friends and business associates, producer Bless Beats and Ivor 2016 nominated songwriter Jin Jin.
‘His interaction and communication with artists, producers and songwriters is impressive and we are pleased that Anthony will kick start the management roster with rising producer and writer, Jordan Riley.’
Bucks Music Group is an independent, international music publisher, responsible for launching or developing the careers of music legends including T-Rex, David Bowie, The Move, Black Sabbath and Procol Harum.
The current roster includes Brian Eno, Peggy Seeger and Pete Doherty as well as composers such as David Arnold, Rachel Portman and Michael Price.
