[News]: Mute Group announces two senior appointments

 

Mute Group announces two senior appointments

General Info (English):
The Mute group of companies is pleased to announce two new senior appointments:

Shirin Foroutan joins as global Managing Director of the Mute group.

Dick O’Dell joins as Head of Artist Management.

Both appointments are with immediate effect.

Founder Daniel Miller has said: “Shirin and Dick join Mute at a very important time in our development. After parting ways with EMI in 2010 and re-establishing our own independent record label, we have positioned ourselves for growth. We have strengthened the group’s leadership and are committing to expanding the services and support we are able to offer the artists, writers and producers represented across our label, publishing and management divisions. This is a very exciting time for us. With Goldfrapp and Erasure releases planned for 2013, plus remarkable talents such as Beth Jeans Houghton, Big Deal and Polly Scattergood continuing to develop, we are very well placed to take our next steps.”

As Managing Director of Mute Artists Limited (record label), Mute Song Limited (publishing) and Mute Management (artist management division), with responsibility for the offices in London, New York and Berlin, Shirin Foroutan will work closely with Daniel Miller and the senior team – Andrew King (Mute Song), Dick O’Dell (Mute Management), Mark Fotiadis (Mute USA) and Anne Haffmans (Mute Germany) – in overseeing each company’s day-to-day operations, development and the implementation of their long-term strategic initiatives.

Shirin Foroutan is a music and entertainment specialist who has spent her career delivering the strategic, production, legal and business services to some of the world’s most iconic events. Prior to joining Mute, she served as Senior Legal Advisor to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Ceremonies, a position she accepted after having served as Director, Legal Affairs (Ceremonies) of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

Shirin Foroutan has also worked as Director, Legal Affairs of Live Nation Global Touring where she provided advice for some of the world’s most renowned and successful artists.

Says Shirin Foroutan, “It is a privilege to be joining the Mute team. Daniel Miller is a visionary whose commitment to nurturing artistic integrity, creativity and independence is unparalleled. The Mute team has always endeavoured to put artists, songwriters, producers and clients first. The team’s commitment is unwavering and the group’s longevity is proof of this. I’m thrilled to be joining a team with such rich history, and such a bright future.”

Dick O’Dell entered the music industry with the establishment of Y Records which formed around the time that Daniel Miller started Mute. Y Records had many successes, including The Pop Group, The Slits, Shriekback and Pigbag.

O’Dell then transitioned into managementworking with artists such as Gang of Four, William Orbit (with whom he founded legendary “dub house” label Guerilla Records and nurtured his career as a remixer and producer), Leftfield, two time Mercury Award and Brit Award nominee, Bat for Lashes, and most recently, Beth Jeans Houghton.

Says Dick O’Dell, “Daniel and I have known each other for years and have always wanted to work together. The creation of Mute Management gives us the opportunity to combine my wealth of management experience with the Mute ethos to develop a benchmark management company.”

Mute Artists Limited is the recording label originally founded by Daniel Miller in 1978 with the release of his own 7” – The Normal ‘TVOD/Warm Leatherette’. Since 1978 Daniel Miller has signed and developed an amazing array of innovative artists, including Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Depeche Mode and Moby, and shown long-term commitment to numerous highly influential musicians and songwriters. With a current roster that includes long-term Mute artists such as Goldfrapp, Erasure, Liars, Can, Laibach and Cabaret Voltaire, alongside newer signings such as Josh T. Pearson, Big Deal, Polly Scattergood, Apparat, Cold Specks, Diamond Version and Maps, Miller has ensured that the guiding spirit behind the roster has always been one of artistic freedom and creative exploration.

Mute Song Limited began in early 1982. Its initial signings were artists on the Mute label but since then has branched out to represent composers and songwriters from across the musical landscape. With a catalogue of over 15,000 songs, the roster currently includes Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, who Mute Song Limited have worked with for over 30 years; Max Richter, who recently won the Music & Sound Award for Best Synch; Bob Geldof; Swans and Underworld (winner’s of the 2012 Q Award for Innovation in Sound in recognition of their contributions to the London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony).

Mute Management was established in 2010 and currently represents Liars, Beth Jeans Houghton, Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr and Holograms.

“Shirin and Dick verstärken Mute in einer wichtigen Phase der Entwicklung. Nach der Trennung von EMI 2010 und der Re-Etablierung von Mute als Independent Record Label, haben wir die Weichen Richtung Wachstum gestellt. Wir haben die Führungsebene verstärkt und werden die Dienstleistungen weiter ausbauen, die wir unseren Künstlern, Komponisten und Produzenten auf den Ebenen Label, Publishing und Management anbieten können. Es ist eine aufregende Zeit für uns. Mit neuen Alben von Goldfrapp und Erasure, die beide noch dieses Jahr erscheinen, sowie vielen jungen Talenten, unter anderen Beth Jeans Houghton, Big Deal und Polly Scattergood, freuen wir uns auf die nächsten Schritte.“

Als Managing Director von Mute Artists Limited (Record Label), Mute Song Limited (Publishing) und Mute Management (Künstler Management Abteilung) und Verantwortung für die Büros in London, New York und Berlin, wird Shirin Foroutan eng mit Daniel Miller und dem Führungsteam um Andrew King (Mute Song), Dick O’Dell (Mute Management), Mark Fotiades (Mute USA) und Anne Haffmans (Mute Germany) zusammenarbeiten.

Shirin Foroutan ist von Haus aus Juristin. Ihr Werdegang umfasst Stationen im Bereich Strategie, Produktion, Recht und Wirtschaft bei einigen der profiliertesten Events weltweit. Vor Mute arbeitete sie federführend als Rechtsbeistand bei den Zeremonien der Olympischen und Paralympischen Spiele von London 2012. Vorausgegangen war bereits die Leitung der rechtlichen Angelegenheiten der Zeremonien der Olympischen und Paralympischen Winterspiele von Vancouver 2010.

I’m thrilled to be joining a team with such rich history, and such a bright future.”

“Es ist mir eine Ehre, das Mute Team zu erweitern. Daniel Miller ist ein Visionär, dessen Engagement für künstlerische Integrität, Kreativität und Unabhängigkeit beispiellos ist. Mute hat stets die Interessen und Bedürfnisse seiner Künstler, Komponisten und Produzenten an oberste Stelle gesetzt. Die Hingabe der gesamten Gruppe ist unerschütterlich – und ihr langjähriges Bestehen bester Beweis dafür. Ich bin begeistert, einem Team mit einer so reichen Geschichte und leuchtenden Zukunft anzugehören.“

Dick O’Dells Weg in die Musikbranche begann mit der Etablierung von Y Records, das etwa zur gleichen Zeit entstand wie Mute. Zu den bekanntesten Künstlern auf Y gehören The Pop Group, The Slits, Shriekback and Pigbag.

Später ging O’Dell ins Management und arbeitete mit Künstlern wie Gang of Four, William Orbit (mit dem zusammen er das legendäre “Dub House” Label Guerilla Records gründete und eine weitere Karriere als Remixer und Produzent begann), Leftfield und den zweifachen Mercury Award- und Brit Award-Nominees Bat for Lashes. Zuletzt übernahm er das Management von Beth Jeans Houghton.

Dick O’Dell sagt: „Daniel and I have known each other for years and have always wanted to work together. The creation of Mute Management gives us the opportunity to combine my wealth of management experience with the Mute ethos to develop a benchmark management company.”

“Daniel und ich kennen uns seit Jahren und wollten schon immer zusammen arbeiten. Mute Management gibt uns nun die Gelegenheit, meine langjährigen Erfahrungen im Managementbereich mit dem Mute Ethos zu kombinieren, eine der führenden Management Firmen aufzubauen.“
