Evan Winiker has joined the music division of Range Media Partners, having spent the last four years at Full Stop Management. He brings with him clients including MAX, Daya, Skyler Stonestreet, Juno winners Walk Off The Earth, touring giants The Disco Biscuits, and his team of managers, Zack Phillips and Valentine Banor.
Winiker’s appointment follows the major additions of Melissa Ruderman and Michele Harrison to the company’s fast-growing music division.
Winiker’s path to management started with being signed as an artist to Drive Thru Records in his late teens and spending the next decade touring the world with Jack Antonoff in indie rock band Steel Train.
“I’m honored to have had that unique experience, it gives me a rare perspective that I lean into when working with clients,” Winiker says in a statement In 2012, he joined up with Brandon Creed and his burgeoning management company, Creed Co. to starting managing artists. After five years together, Winiker came with Creed to the newly formed Full Stop Management.
Winiker and his team have stayed busy throughout the pandemic, with an Amazon-partnered livestream for MAX from The Greek Theater, Skyler Stonestreet co-wrote the multi-platinum pandemic hit “Stuck With U” for Arianna Grande & Justin Bieber, and The Disco Biscuits raised more than $100,000 for local Black Lives Matter groups with a livestream from the Philadelphia Phillies Baseball stadium (with the help of Live Nation and other partners).
“We are filled with gratitude that Evan has joined our team, he is the epitome of Range – thoughtful, caring, ambitious and inventive in everything he does. We are thrilled that Evan wants to guide the artists he represents into unlocking opportunity in all areas” says Pete Micelli, CEO of Range Media Partners.
Winiker stated, “I’m beyond thankful for all the love and memories shared over the last few years with my Full Stop family, and thrilled to be embarking on this new journey. As a manager it’s always my goal to surround my clients with the best teams in all areas. This eco system is truly that. It’s an environment of forward thinking people who look beyond the boundaries and walls that are categorically put in place, allowing them to open new doors and reach new peaks that we dream up.”
