“They’re already proving to be a strong A&R source in the domestic market, utilising their established position in artist and studio management, as well as touring and event promotion,” added Mark. Launched in 2013 as an events brand, One Day Entertainment evolved five years ago into artist and producer management, spearheaded by co-founders Nick Lupi and Adit Gauchan.

Speaking of this new direction, co-founder Nick said, “We decided to draw on our own experience as artists to guide the careers of the next generation of talent. We currently manage ARIA-winning, Grammy-nominated producer 18YOMAN, as well as multi-platinum hip hop group ONEFOUR, among others.

“Our goals and approach have always been the same – to help artists build long-term, meaningful careers, and the EMI Australia team is world-class with a proven track record in breaking artists. So, we are thrilled about partnering with this talented group to bring a new generation of Australian artists to the forefront,” added co-founder Adit.
