Brilliant Corners

Three US-based artist management firms are coming together to create one new artist management powerhouse to be known as Brilliant Corners Artist Management. There was a lot of artist management in that sentence, wasn’t there?

The new venture has been set up by Jordan Kurland and Joe Goldberg of Zeitgeist Artist Management; David Viecelli and Alex Kadvan of Lever And Beam; and Josh Rosenfeld of Barsuk Artist Management. At launch, Brilliant Corners will boast an impressive roster of clients including Death Cab For Cutie, St Vincent, Sleater-Kinney and Best Coast.

Explaining the motivation behind the new business, Kurland told reporters: “For a long time, Joe and I were evaluating how best to expand Zeitgeist in the midst of the rapidly changing music industry. We kept coming back to the concept of building a new company, one that would allow us to provide more services for our clients without sacrificing the fabric of what has made Zeitgeist unique”.

They then discovered that Viecelli, Kadvan and Rosenfeld had been thinking along the same lines, hence the decision to unite to create a new business with bases in multiple US cities.

Outlining the group’s ambitions for the new company, Viecelli added: “Our Brilliant Corners founding partners, along with our strong bicoastal team, are committed to honest and collaborative representation of artists via widely shared resources and experience. We also expect to provide a home for other passionate managers drawn to the support we can provide them in a culture that transcends that of most management companies”.
