Live giant AEG has filled five leadership roles at its UK division. Jacqui Harris is now Vice President and General Manager for AEG Presents UK; Lucky Thompson is Senior Director, Events And Operations; Connie Shao is Vice President and General Manager for International Touring; Leonie Wakeman is Director Of Commercial Operations; and Stuart Dorn is Group Venue Operations Director. “It’s an exciting time for our business as we break new ground and, in turn, build out a people structure that powers the successful delivery of our growth plans”, says AEG Presents UK CEO Steve Homer.

ATC Management has recruited three new managers for its new New York office, Brandon SanchezJordan Alper and Ben Rafson. “We are THRILLED to launch our east coast presence with such a stellar team”, says ATC North America CEO Jonny Dawson. “Ben is a huge talent with a formidable roster, and Brandon and Jordan are true rising stars who have done a phenomenal job representing Yaeji’s meteoric rise. We are really excited about the future of ATC – we believe there is no better home for culturally defining art”.

The UK’s Association of Independent Music has promoted Nina Radojewski to Head Of Membership. “The new Head Of Membership position draws together all the strands of services that AIM delivers to members more holistically”, she says. “I’m really excited to step into the role and to continue to work and build strong relationships with our incredible community of independent music businesses, artists and entrepreneurs”.



Lewis Capaldi has released new single ‘Pointless’, an ode to the BBC One gameshow. No, not really, it’s the song he wrote with Ed Sheeran. It’s about love and that. “Ed had that lyric, ‘I bring her coffee in the morning, she brings me inner peace’”, he says. “And pretty much every other line of that opening [verse] was just banging”. That’s not how he told it a couple of months ago.

Russ Millions has released new single ‘One Of A Kind’, featuring French The Kid and A1 x J1.

Pnau have release new track ‘You Know What I Need’, featuring Troye Sivan.

Tom Walker has released a new video for his single ‘The Best Is Yet To Come’, made up of storeies submitted by fans. He’s also announced UK tour dates in March next year, finishing up at Koko in London on 31 Mar.

Los Bitchos have released the video for ‘Los Chrismos’, taken from their festive EP, which is out now.

Teri Gender Bender has released new single ‘The Slow Lean’, from her new EP ‘State Of Fear’, which is out on 16 Dec.

Jen Cloher has released new single ‘Being Human’. “Of all the songs on this album I am most nervous about, ‘Being Human’ is the one”, she says. “It’s earnest and basic and raw. Reclaiming your culture is an awkward and messy business. I can see why so many people shy away from it. When you’re not living on your own lands you have to seek it out and find the people who can support you”. That new album, ‘I Am The River, The River Is Me’, is out on 3 Mar.

Jehst has released new track ‘One Horse Town’, featuring Confucius MC and Eva Lazarus.

Emmeline has released new single ‘Sabrina’. She says: “’Sabrina’ is a film I used to watch with my grandmother, and therefore has a particularly nostalgic significance for me. I suppose a lot of the music I’m writing at the moment is coming from that place of nostalgia; the first EP was made after I had moved away from home to London, and part of that transition for me now is reflecting back on childhood, and relating to this image of a young woman on the precipice of change”.

New PC Music signee Holly Waxwing has released new single ‘Sister Species’.



Matt Goss has announced a UK and Ireland tour next spring, which will seen him perform songs written by Cole Porter with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and a fifteen-piece big band. Fancy. There will also be an accompanying album recorded at Abbey Road. Tickets for the tour are on sale now.
