General Manager: James Gardiner
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
The War On Drugs - Lost In The Dream
James started his journey in the music industry as a recording artist, signed to Warner Atlantic UK and Interscope in the US in 2007. This led to performing at various music festivals across the world, such as Glastonbury UK, Lollapalooza US and Fuji Rock Festival Japan, whilst touring for several years and recording a debut album at Sunset Sound in LA.
His ongoing curiosity for the business aspect of the entertainment industry, led him in 2011 to various Commercial & Marketing roles across media conglomerates and agencies, such as PHD Omnicom where he worked on the Warner Bros, HBO & Atlantic Records business, before moving to head up UK Promotions & Intellectual Property Licensing for The Walt Disney Co, UK.
James began developing his own independent management roster, and Lyricom was then founded in 2019 with a desire to create an agency built by talent for talent, that could cover all aspects of Entertainment Management, from Artist Development, to Marketing Strategy and Digital Campaign delivery.
2020 saw Lyricom extend its infrastructure, and sign an exclusive distribution agreement with Believe UK, for its label services clients.
James oversees all day-to-day operations of the business, leading Artist & Marketing Campaigns, as well as developing new opportunities with partners.
In 2021, James co-founded short-form Animated Music series WONDERPOP with writer and management client Matthew Bishop, and label partner Sony Music UK.
