Artist Manager Named Warner A&R Chief

Artist manager Heath Bradby is the new Head of A&R at Warner Music Australia.

He manages Karnivool, Drapht, Jebediah, Bob Evans, Downsyde and Papa vs Pretty.

He will keep his management company Fidelity Corps going, bringing in Sydney Festival associate director Kirsty Pinder to help.

When speaking at past conferences, Bradby has been critical of record labels, especially with their “360” deals.

“After 17 years of management … I’m excited about playing in the pool that is over the fence, since for years I’ve been saying I know best anyway,’ he said. “I can’t wait to get my hands dirty.”
