Artist manager Aaron Sawyer, along with longtime colleague and associate manager Hannah Boren, join Nashville-based Triple 8 Management after seven years with Red Light Management. With them come clients including Madison Cunningham, I’m With Her, Julian, Lage, Melt, Sean and Sara Watkins and Watkins Family Hour.
Triple 8, founded by George Couri and Paul Steele in 2008, will grow to 30 full time staff with the additions of Sawyer and Boren. The company has also entered a strategic partnership with Sony Music Entertainment, distribution company Thirty Tigers and veteran radio promotion executive Norbert Nix to create Triple Tigers Records, a label imprint focused on Country music.
“I’ve long admired the company George and Paul have built over the years, as well as their all-hands approach to management and ability to look at every minute detail to foster enduring artist growth and development,” Sawyer shares in a statement.
“Aaron Sawyer has been a trusted friend for at least 15 years, and Hannah and I have known each other since her time at Noisetrade in 2014,” adds Triple 8 partner Steele. “I cannot say enough kind things about these people and am honored they have decided Triple 8 is the right place for them to be. I have never been more excited about our future than I am today, and Aaron and Hannah are a big part of that.”
“We’re really proud that Triple 8 is known for being a collaborative and creative environment where everyone in the company is willing to raise a hand and help across teams and departments,” said Couri, Triple 8 Management founding partner. “Aaron and Hannah embody those qualities and compliment the team perfectly. We are thrilled to welcome them to our organization. We are lucky to have them.”
