Anthony Hippsley is to take on a dual role at UK-based independent publisher Bucks Music Group – becoming the company’s new Creative A&R Manager as well as running Bucks Music Management.
Hippsley (pictured) joined the firm as Talent Manager to set up its management arm in 2016, having previously worked at Big Life and Spilt Milk.
In his first year, he signed six new clients to the Bucks Music Management roster.
“This wider A&R role will complement Hippsley’s management duties perfectly and allow us to service the talent across our existing rosters even more completely.”
