About

Milk & Honey is a 21st century hybrid entertainment management company driven by two important disciplines — A&R and Marketing. The company is a privately owned boutique with offices in Los Angeles, New York and Nashville with the launch of a European office imminently approaching. With under 15 employees, the company is able to move faster than larger slow moving companies, and the results have paid off in only 4 years in business. Milk & Honey’s employees all came from distinguished roles at major companies with a desire to be a part of a more focused mid-sized organization. Simply stated, the desire to design the perfect management company forged the name — you are in the land of Milk & Honey.
