London, Los Angeles & New York, 31st January 2022 Various Artists Management have announced ambitious plans for an increased presence in the USA with a new office in Los Angeles, which will serve as a base for its growing roster of artists.

The company, which was founded in 2008, has had a significant presence in the USA since 2016 and has now purchased a new property in the Hollywood Hills that will incorporate offices, studios and accommodation for its clients and guests.

Matt Luxon, CEO of Various Artists Management US said, “Since 2016 we have been building a significant presence in the US and have enjoyed success with a number of our artists. With so many exciting projects now coming to the fore it was time to ramp up our operations to provide the support and infrastructure that our artists need when working in the US and our new base in Los Angeles will be an amazing creative hub.”
