Emmy-nominated music executive and veteran artist manager Adam Leber has announced the launch of his new management and media company in partnership with Live Nation.
The new company is called Rebel, which is Leber’s name spelled backward.
Under Rebel, he will continue the worldwide representation of longtime clients including Miley Cyrus, Lil Nas X, Labrinth, and others.
The news of Rebel’s launch comes as Lil Nas X lands his second Billboard Hot 100 No.1 with latest single, Montero (Call Me By Your Name).
“This is a new chapter for me,” Leber said in a statement. “It’s exciting to kick off this era and work towards building an artist-first and development-centric haven for career superstars with a focus on the future of music and technology.”
Leber was most recently a partner at Live Nation-owned music management group Maverick, which he co-founded in 2014.
“I’d like to thank my previous partners and colleagues for all of their belief and support over the years at Maverick,” he said.
“It’s exciting to kick off this era and work towards building an artist-first and development-centric haven for career superstars with a focus on the future of music and technology.”
