Robbie Williams management company ie:music has recruited rock and metal specialist Leander Gloversmith in a bid to further diversify the company’s roster. His key focus initially will be on pop-punk act Neck Deep.

“It is a privilege to be part of a company with such an effusive legacy, who continue to evolve and remain a source of ideas and creativity”, says Gloversmith.

“A lot is said about the diminished state of this scene”, he goes on, “yet ie:music are doubling down on rock and metal as we believe it to be in rude health, birthing some of the most exciting and creative artists around, many of whom are quietly ascending to arena headline status without a drop of mainstream support. Paired with its passionate, multi-generational audiences, this is truly a world of lifers, on and off-stage”.

Gloversmith will work out of ie:music’s LA base, ie:west, whose president Michael Loney says: “We are delighted to welcome Leander and his roster to the ie:music family. He has proved time and again that he has an eye for what’s next. His roster will be able to avail of our world class artist services team who will apply experience developed across ie:music’s other artists to maximise their potential”.

In addition to Neck Deep, Gloversmith’s roster as he joins the company also includes post-hardcore group As It Is and metal band Frost Koffin.
