San Francisco based Brilliant Corners Artist Management has added veteran manager Justin Little as the senior member of the firm’s Los Angeles division.
“We’ve been looking for the right person to open our Los Angeles office for quite some time,” Brilliant Corners partner Jordan Kurland said in the announcement. “Justin was integral to this company (then called Zeitgeist Artist Management) during an important period of growth. He was a great manager then and has continued to hone his skills over the last decade. We are excited to have him back, he will undoubtedly play a large role as we enter our next phase.”
Little brings artists including synthwave band The Midnight and Nashville-based rock band Bully, which is co-managed with Michele Fleischli at Like Management.
At Constant Artists Management, Little worked with artists including Future Islands, Explosions in The Sky, Foxygen and Wolf Parade. He also developed a partnership with Bailey Blues, working with clients including Your Smith and Jake Etheridge.
Little has history with Brilliant Corners’ team, beginning at Zeitgeist Artist Management, which would later transform into BCAM, where he worked with Feist, platinum-selling act Matt Nathanson, Bob Mould and The Head and The Heart.
Brilliant Corners represents artists including Death Cab For Cutie, The Postal Service, Toro Y Moi, The New Pornographers, Soccer Mommy, PUP, Josh Ritter, Momma, Real Estate, and more. The company also has staff based in Seattle and New York.
“I’m honored to join Brilliant Corners and expand the company’s presence in Los Angeles, says Little. “Jordan, Joe, Josh and the rest of the team have an exceptional track record of building successful, long-term careers for artists while staying ahead of industry trends. It’s incredibly humbling to have the opportunity to return to the company (albeit with a new name) where I first began my career 17 years ago and be a part of this exciting new chapter.”
