The launch includes signing emerging rapper Lancey Foux with new hires Amal Omari and Matt Ott heading up the London office.
Digital distribution and label services company Human Re Sources has expanded to the United Kingdom, the company announced Monday (Dec. 2). Heading up the London office will be newly-appointed A&R executive Amal Omari and vp creator services Matt Ott, who join a leadership team that includes Human Re Sources founder J. Erving and A&R and creator services execs Austin Thomas, Ray Kurzeka and Clarissa Reformina.
Monday’s announcement coincided with the signing of the company’s newest artist Lancey Foux, a 24-year-old East London rapper who this year became the first British artist to perform at the U.S. rap festival Rolling Loud. He is currently prepping his forthcoming studio album, Friend or Foux, and is slated to headline London’s O2 Academy Islington on Dec. 8.
“We’re proud to have expanded into London, to serve the music industry here and support local artists,” said Erving in a statement. “Having signed Lancey Foux to join us at Human Re Sources is the beginning of much more and we’re excited to have him on board.”
