Meg Mac signs management deal with Milton Archer
Andrew Jackson’s management firm Milton Archer has signed Meg Mac.
Jackson – previously the A&R manager and general manager of Ministry of Sound – was full of praise for his new recruit.
“One of the happy accidents of moving home in 2020 was the opportunity to sign Meg to our small family of artists,” he said.
“In our early meetings, it was immediately clear just how intuitive and brilliant Meg is as a songwriter and artist, and how determined she is to continue scaling new heights creatively and professionally.
“Meg is a truly generational talent, and her new music is her most personal and powerful yet.
“I’m deeply honoured for Milton Archer to partner with Meg for this formative new chapter and beyond, and excited for what we can achieve together.”
Mark Holland, general manager of A&R at Mac’s record label, EMI Australia, said he’s thrilled to be working with both Mac and Jackson in this next phase.
“We’re constantly amazed at Meg’s musical output and tenacity to get things right, and this new material is no exception and truly world class. The stage is yours, Meg,” he added.
The ‘new material’ is Mac’s new song, ‘Is It Worth Being Sad’, out today.
It was produced by The Donuts, who have previously worked with Kendrick Lamar and H.E.R.
Mac recalled how the song was a turning point.
“I had just run away to the country. I was running away from my troubles,” she said.
“I was living in peace and quiet finally, and really thought I’d figured it all out and it was smooth sailing ahead.
“It was the start of sorting out my life. This song was like my first step – I didn’t know it then though.”
