Triple 8 Management has added Aaron Sawyer as an artist manager. He brings with him longtime colleague and associate manager Hannah Boren.
Prior to joining Triple 8, Sawyer spent seven years at Red Light Management. With his hire, he expands the Triple 8 Management roster to include Madison Cunningham, I’m With Her, Julian Lage, and Melt, as well as Sean and Sara Watkins and Watkins Family Hour.
“We’re really proud that Triple 8 is known for being a collaborative and creative environment where everyone in the company is willing to raise a hand and help across teams and departments,” said Triple 8 Management founding partner George Couri in a statement. “Aaron and Hannah embody those qualities and compliment the team perfectly. We are thrilled to welcome them to our organization. We are lucky to have them.”
“Aaron Sawyer has been a trusted friend for at least 15 years, and Hannah and I have known each other since her time at Noisetrade in 2014,” added Triple 8 partner Paul Steele. “I can not say enough kind things about these people and am honored they have decided Triple 8 is the right place for them to be. I have never been more excited about our future than I am today, and Aaron and Hannah are a big part of that.”
Sawyer added, “I’ve long admired the company George and Paul have built over the years, as well as their all-hands approach to management and ability to look at every minute detail to foster enduring artist growth and development. Paul and I nearly joined forces in 2015, so when the opportunity to join him arose again, it felt kismet.”
Cunningham currently boasts two Grammy nominations leading into next month’s ceremony, with nods for best folk album (for Revealer) and best American roots performance (for her song “Life According to Raechel”). Lage sold out concerts across Europe and North America last year following the release of View With a Room, his second album for Blue Note Records. Meanwhile, Sean and Sara Watkins continued their longstanding Watkins Family Hour project, releasing their record Vol. II and celebrating their 20th year in residence at Los Angeles club Largo. They are also gearing up for a big year with their group Nickel Creek, with the band slated to tour in Europe for the first time in nearly two decades.
