Promoters Fin O’Leary, Brian Hand and Simon Merriman – all formerly of Aiken Promotions – have launched a new Ireland-based live music company called Singular Artists. Set to stage events in both Ireland and Northern Ireland, the company has the backing of UK promoter Kilimanjaro, which will provide infrastructure, accounting and other support to the new business.

“Singular Artists is incredibly exciting for all of us”, says O’Leary. “Brian, Simon and I have worked side-by-side for a number of years so it was natural that we would join forces to create something new, given the circumstances. We always strived for an artist-friendly approach to music promotion, and we’re very excited for the artists we’re working with, and for the new relationships we will be forging. We are looking forward to building on this with the Kilimanjaro team as Singular Artists”.

Kilimanjaro CEO Stuart Galbraith adds: “COVID-19 has had a devastating effect on our business across the world and yet at times like this sometimes you have to put faith in the future, and invest in both people and opportunity when it comes knocking”.

Referencing his fellow Kilimanjaro director Steve Tilley and the firm’s German parent company DEAG, he goes on: “When Steve Tilley and I suggested to DEAG that we back Fin, Brian and Simon it was greeted with enthusiasm and with a long-term vision. I’m delighted we’ve been able to agree a business plan with the guys and really looking forward to helping them continue to develop their careers once we emerge out of the coronavirus crisis”.

As well as music, Singular Artists will promote live shows by YouTubers, podcasters, comedians and other spoken word artists.
