TaP Music announce The Weird & The Wonderful’s Steven Braines & Sophia Kearney as founders of their new electronic division.
Today, in an exciting new collaborative partnership TaP Management have invited The Weird & The Wonderful founders Steven Braines and Sophia Kearney to spearhead their international electronic division - bringing heavyweight electronic star power to TaP such as award winning producers Maya Jane Coles, KDA and Catz n Dogz amongst their 20 strong roster. The Weird & the Wonderful’s artists will join TaP mega stars Lana Del Rey, Dua Lipa, Ellie Goulding and many more. The company also today announce a forthcoming Maya Cole rework - Dua Lipa x Maya Jane Cole - Swan Song.
The Weird & Wonderful co-founders, Steven and Sophia said: ‘We spurned so many offers from other management companies over the years - the thing that changed for us was simply who was asking us the question. TaP are undoubtedly the most exciting global management company out there from mega stars like Lana Del Rey, Dua Lipa and Ellie Goulding through to emerging talent like Dermot Kennedy and Grace Carter. Best of all TaP are encouraging us to remain as “Weird & Wonderful” as we always have been.’
Ben Mawson from TaP said: "Ed and I have a passion for electronic music and have wanted for some time to start an electronic wing of TaP. We are very excited to have two of the world’s best electronic artist managers join us with their team and we intend to continue to build this side of our business in exactly the same way we’ve built TaP - providing a full service management company to producers and DJs in the electronic space."
As a result of this new working practice TaP will now have an office in Milan, alongside existing bases in Berlin, Sydney and its headquarter offices in London and LA.
