Artist managers Steve Milbourne and Teresa Raeburn have announced that they are joining music company Blue Raincoat’s management division. They bring with them their roster of artists, songwriters and producers from existing business Major Influence.

Milbourne, who founded Major Influence in 2015, says: “It’s brilliant to be going into partnership with two actual personal heroes from the music industry”.

That’s Blue Raincoat founders Jeremy Lascelles and Robin Millar, in case you wondered. “We’ve worked with them and the wider team, including the brilliant Emma Kamen, through the publishing arm for several years”, Milbourne adds, “and their wealth of experience, independent spirit and refusal to commit to the norms of the industry really align with us”.

Referencing the label side of the Blue Raincoat group – aka Chrysalis – Milbourne adds: “As our roster has grown and taken more of an international foothold it’s great to be able to add more resource from the wider Blue Raincoat and Chrysalis team to our day to day operation”.

Lascelles and Millar add in a joint statement: “We’ve worked with Steve and Teresa for the past four years in our capacity as The Wandering Hearts’ publisher. We know them to be smart thinking, hard working, highly committed and super effective managers – and great people. Really delighted to welcome them and their roster of artists to the Blue Raincoat family”.

As well as The Wandering Hearts, Milbourne and Raeburn’s acts include the Warner-signed L Devine, Sunset Sons, Robin Howl and Okan.
