Entertainment One Welcomes Music Management Company Hardlivings

Toronto/New York – September 12, 2016 - In its commitment to working with music industry leaders around the world, Entertainment One Music (eOne Music) is expanding its presence in the UK and extending its artist management capabilities with the addition of Dan Stacey’s UK-based music management company Hardlivings.   The announcement was made by Chris Taylor, President, eOne Music.
 
Hardlivings is the artist management company behind British dance music successes Riton, TIEKS and Jax Jones, among many others across multiple genres of music.
 
“I’ve known Dan for many years and I’m delighted that he’s bringing his passion and impeccable taste to eOne. Dan has built an incredible roster of talent by nurturing creative ability to its full artistic potential. eOne Music’s global resources and network will enable Dan and his artists to maximize that potential on a worldwide basis,” said Taylor.
 
Through the launch of this exciting venture that will bring Stacey and the Hardlivings family of artists to eOne, the collaboration will further charge the global momentum of eOne Music. eOne Music continues to broaden its scope and reach in artist management through its brands Last Gang Management (Lights, Arkells, Diana Gordon), WRC  Management (Kaytranada, Sango, STWO, Pomo, Lou Phelps) and People’s Champ (Ryan Hemsworth, Badbadnotgood), jointly referred to as The Ozone Management Group of Companies.
 
“Chris and I first crossed paths working together on Death From Above 1979 shortly after he launched Last Gang. Since then, he’s been a true force in the industry. I’m very excited to extend our working relationship under eOne Music, which will undoubtedly provide an incredible multidimensional platform for my artist rosters to blossom in the years ahead,” commented Stacey.
 
Stacey brings over 12 years of industry experience to eOne. Prior to launching Hardlivings, he managed and A&R’d the rise of Duke Dumont from a relatively unknown leftfield artist, to two Grammy nominations, multiple UK Number 1 singles, over 3 million single sales, and a substantial touring business in their time together. Prior to that, he was an A&R at Nick Worthington’s 679 Recordings where he signed respected UK artists, Plan B and Kano, and put together the seminal Run the Road Grime compilations.
 
Stacey and his team will be based in eOne’s London office.
