Justin Becker Launches Management Firm Murmuration
Artist manager Justin Becker has announced the launch of his own firm Murmuration after departing Ekonomisk Management. He’s joined by clients including Alex Lahey, Bayonne, Okkervil River and Sondre Lerche.
Becker, who is based in New York, will also continue to co-manage client Tift Merritt with Ekonomisk.
“This past year has given all of us much to reflect upon. Many times, I found myself returning to the occurrence of birds in Murmuration, and how an individual’s behavior, when done with purpose, has the ability to scale and create real impact. It’s in that spirit that I’m excited to begin 2021 with the creation of a new management company built upon this foundation. I look forward to exploring new opportunities to further grow and develop the careers of my artists alongside the support of their dedicated partners and teams,” Becker said in a statement.
Becker spent the last 10 years at the Chicago-based Ekonomisk Management. In addition to working with his own roster he was part of Andrew Bird’s management team before moving to New York in 2013 to open a second office for the company.
