WASSERMAN U.K. UPS 3 TO PARTNER
7/14/22

Wasserman Music has promoted three London-based agents to partner: Dave BlackgroveMike Malak and Adele Slater are now part of the U.K. leadership team.

Blackgrove has an electronic music roster that includes Camelphat and Fisher; Malak is the European agent for Billie Eilish and his roster includes Girl In Red; and Slater reps Liam GallagaherCourtney BarnettPerfume Genius and others.

Naturally, the Wasserman Music partners had high praise for their colleagues. Partner Tom Schroeder said Blackgrove is “An unbelievably hard-working family man, he has put so much into the job, showing real tenacity and total commitment to his artists. He has established an incredible dance music roster in a sphere that rarely backs a newcomer.”

Alex Hardee said of Malak: "Mike has had a great year, with Billie's European shows and helping her create the Overheated climate conference, as well as winning the Arthur Award. He has extraordinary instincts for A&R and artist development.”

And James Whiting applauded Slater, “Not only is Adele a great agent, she has an invaluable knowledge of the live industry that can only be gained by years of experience as both an agent and a promoter, and we welcome her input into the future management of Wasserman Music."

Meanwhile, Wasserman has added two new agents—Nick Cave, who spent 13 years at WME, and Chris Smyth, who ran his own digital PR company before joining Primary Talent International as an agent in 2015.
