Robbie’s Management Expands

Tim Clark and David Enthoven, the management team behind Robbie Williams, have acquired an unspecified stake in management company This Is Music.

Oli Isaacs has run This Is Music, an artist and producer management business, since leaving law firm Smiths-Law three years ago. His clients included such artists as Hot Chip, Cut Copy, Patrick Wolf and Test Icicles and labels including Moshi Moshi.

Clark and Enthoven were reportedly particularly excited about the deal after seeing Simian Mobile Disco, one of This Is Music’s management acts, at the recent Coachella festival in California.

Isaacs is best known for his work with James Ford and the critically acclaimed Simian Mobile Disco, which has clocked up almost 100,000 worldwide sales this year and sold out shows including the Astoria in London and the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

James Ford won both of this year’s Music Week and MMF producer of the year awards for his production on platinum records by Arctic Monkeys and the Mercury Prize-winning Klaxons.

Other acts on This Is Music’s roster include A-Trak, FrankMusik, Little Boots, Findlay Brown and The Black Ghosts.
