Independent music firm Blue Raincoat has added Cigarettes After Sex to its artist management roster in a deal that also sees the New York band’s manager join the business. Ed Harris will continue to manage both Cigarettes After Sex, and psychedelic band Celebration, from New York as part of the Blue Raincoat family.

Confirming the new alliance, Blue Raincoat Music CEO Jeremy Lascelles said: “This is an exciting moment for us for two reasons. Ed Harris is one of the brightest, smartest most dedicated new managers I have met for many years and it is a delight that he has chosen to continue his great management work as part of Blue Raincoat Artists. Secondly, from the moment I first heard Cigarettes After Sex, I was completely blown away and knew I wanted to work with them. It is an honour to now be part of their management team”.

Meanwhile Harris himself added: “This is a wonderful opportunity for both myself and the artists I work with. I’m looking forward to being able to build on what we have done with both Cigarettes After Sex and Celebration, as well as seeking out new musical talent as part of one of the industry’s most forward-thinking organisations”.
