PHIL JONES JOINS MNRK MUSIC GROUP AS VP, ARTIST MANAGEMENT
Roster Includes Khazali, The Magic Numbers and Yumi Zouma.
(August 1, 2022) MNRK Music Group proudly welcomes Phil Jones as VP, Artist Management, bringing with him an incredible roster to the MNRK Management division. Jones has extensive global experience working with some of the brightest lights in the music world and was previously with the label & management firm Park The Van. He will be based in MNRK’s London office but will plug into the company’s global infrastructure immediately for the benefit of his business and his roster. He reports to Chris Taylor, MNRK President and CEO.
Taylor says, “MNRK has been working closely with Phil and his artists Anand Wilder and Ailbhe Reddy through our label teams. We quickly recognized his capabilities as well as the opportunity for us to join forces. Phil has great industry relationships and artistic instincts. When you combine that experience with the resources of MNRK, the growth potential is exponential.”
Jones says, “I’m thrilled to be joining MNRK and cannot wait to get to work in building a progressive and creative management company alongside Chris Taylor, Ted May, and the rest of the team. I feel lucky to be bringing my roster of artists to such a great home and from the moment I met Chris, I knew this was the place for me. His wealth of experience is something I really respect and joining MNRK was a very easy decision.”
MNRK has purposefully built a globally focused management business that provides all the tools managers and artists need to succeed in the modern business. With touring expertise, digital marketing capacity, radio support, sync licensing, full finance and legal resources, sales and merchandise expertise, press strategy, A&R, international teams, and a world-class executive team, MNRK continues to expand its award-winning roster.
Jones’ roster includes emerging UK pop star Khazali and double platinum-selling rockers The Magic Numbers, as well as New Zealand indie-pop quartet Yumi Zouma and Swedish buzz act Waterbaby (a partnership with Johan Calissendorff, Pangur Music). He will work under the MNRK banner. Other MNRK Management clients include arena rockers Arkells; electro-pop artists Lights and Alice Ivy; lo-fi hip hop artist Powfu; comedian Steve Trevino; jazz pianist Thompson Egbo Egbo; and Latin artists Lupita Infante and Raquel Sofía.
