Vector Management founders Ken Levitan and Jack Rovner have named Jason Murray president of the artist management company, where he will oversee operations and new business.
Murray is the owner and co-founder of the Canadian indie label and artist management company Black Box Music, which will merge with Vector.
Joining the Vector roster is singer-songwriter-guitarist Charley Crockett, who released his latest album, The Man From Waco, in 2022.
In 2023, Vector is set to release a Rick Rubin-produced album from Kesha as well as new music from Manchester Orchestra. Meanwhile, Country Music Hall of Fame member Hank Williams Jr. will return to the road. As well, Molly Tuttle is currently nominated for a Grammy in the all-genre best new artist category, as well as for best bluegrass album (for Crooked Tree). In addition to its headquarters in Nashville, Vector has offices in New York, Los Angeles and Toronto.
During his career, Murray has worked with rock artists including The Glorious Sons, JJ Wilde and Blanco Brown.
“I believe today, more so than ever before, artists need a management partner that fully understands all aspects of the music business,” Murray said in a statement. “Vector has been that company for decades, and we will continue to build on that ethos as we look forward.”
“We’re thrilled to bring Jason into the Vector team,” Levitan added. “His years of expertise and deep knowledge of this industry are excellent, and we can’t wait for the road ahead together.”
“We look forward to welcoming Jason to our great team here at Vector,” Rovner said. “His knowledge and leadership serve to further strengthen our management team and we couldn’t be happier to have him as part of the next chapter of Vector.”
