Name: Hannes Kuhr
Title: Artist Management
Based in: Berlin/Hamburg
Can you tell us a bit about the company’s history and its roster?
We are an artist management & label and work with established artists like Leoniden, My Ugly Clementine as well as international newcomers like Dottie Andersson, Orbit or Donkey Kid.
And can you tell us a bit about the acts you personally work with at this moment?
I’m in charge of 3 acts: M. Byrd, Dottie Andersson & Donkey Kid. All of them are mainly focussed on the international music market and we are therefore always looking for partners and expanding in our key territories (UK, BeNeLux, Scandinavia & France)
What was the moment you decided you wanted to work with music?
I started working for Reeperbahn Festival, a showcase festival in Hamburg. I was always passionate about live concerts & festivals and played in bands myself in my teenage years. So music was always a big part in my life, so it was obvious to do something with music.
Which acts are you looking forward to seeing this year at SPOT?
Orbit, Noova, Lucky Lo, Dillistone, Terese
Best show you’ve ever seen hands down?
