Conor Oberst’s Managers Nate Krenkel and Gabriel Gonzalez Form NAG Mgmt: Exclusive

The duo will also rep Bright Eyes, Desaparacidos and the Mystic Valley Band.

Conor Oberst‘s longtime managers Nate Krenkel and Gabriel Gonzalez have formed NAG Management, a new company based in the Hudson Valley town of New Paltz, NY.  

The new concern will also represent Oberst’s other projects Bright Eyes, Desaparacidos and the Mystic Valley Band.

Krenkel originally signed Oberst to a publishing deal at Sony/ATV before becoming his manager in 2003. Gonzalez has worked as Oberst’s day-to-day manager since the mid-aughts.


Autumn Seguin, from Krenkel’s Team Love Records — which has put out recordings by Tilly & The Wall, Jenny Lewis & The Watson Twins and The Felice Brothers — will also be joining the NAG team.

Oberst is currently gearing up for his new album Salutations out March 17 on Nonesuch Records and recorded with the Felice Brothers and drummer Jim Keltner with guest appearances My Morning Jacket‘s Jim James, Gillian Welch, Blake Mills and Jonathan Wilson.

The album features a full-band flushing out 10 solo acoustic tracks from Oberst’s 2016 album Ruminations plus seven new songs. He’s slated to begin touring in early-March.
