UNIFIED Music Group has expanded its Artist Management pillar with a slew of appointments.

Ashleigh Hills will now co-run the division with founder Jaddan Comerford.

It also brought on board artist managers; Sarah McMillan (Slowly Slowly + Batpiss) and Lauren Poulter (Vance Joy + Bloods).

This morning’s announcement also saw Melbourne based Essie Holt added to the roster.

Hills began at UNIFIED in 2017 as Comerford’s assistant.

“I’m very happy to be running the management pillar with Jaddan,” says Hills.

She adds, “When discussing a management company the focus is usually on the artists.

“We are fortunate enough to work with incredible artists, but we’re also fortunate to work with incredible talent in our artist managers.”

McMillan started with A Day on the Green and then moved over to Premier Artists, which saw her at Mushroom Group for over 10 years.

Poulter, who ran PALMARY Music Management for over 7 years, brings Broods across to the management roster and rounds out Team Vance Joy with Rachael Comerford, and assists in managing the singer-songwriter’s day-to-day happenings and building his global business.

Latest roster addition, pop performer Essie Holt, who just dropped new single ‘Give Me The Night’, will be managed at UNIFIED by Eddie Deal, who also handles Trophy Eyes, John Floreani and CLEWS.

Holt is opening for UK folk-pop act Nina Nesbitt on her tour this month.

The UNIFIED artist management roster now numbers 28 acts, and also includes The Amity Affliction, Violent Soho, Illy,The Kite String Tangle, Nina Las Vegas, Ocean Alley and REMI with Tash Sultana for the Americas.
