Milk & Honey is making a splash in Australia and New Zealand.
The Los Angeles-based music and sports management firm expands into these parts with an office in Sydney, led by Daniel Nall, who returns to Australia after a three-year stint as a manager at the company’s headquarters.
Nall can draw from almost 10 years’ label experience with the three majors (Sony Music, Warner Music, Universal), dance specialist Ministry of Sound and the BBC, and as an artist manager working with the likes of PJ Harding, Rich Costey, Tommy Trash, Louis Schoorl and more.
With the launch of Milk & Honey Australia New Zealand, the company claims to be the largest global writer/producer management business in the southern hemisphere, boasting a roster of clients that includes Australian writer/producers – PJ Harding, Louis Schoorl, Ned Houston; ex-Aus writer/producer clients, Stuart Crichton, Tushar Apte, Whakaio Taahi and longtime artist clients Hook N Sling, Tommy Trash and Feenixpawl.
Established in 2014, the business has gone on to sell over a 500 million records as a music company representing its creator clients, including hits for Ruel, Guy Sebastian and Jessica Mauboy, reps say.
“I can honestly say that Milk & Honey is one of the most exciting music companies in the world,” comments Nall in a statement issued out of L.A.
Its “global footprint means that launching local talent into the international market will be a core focus of what we aim to achieve,” he adds.

“I’ve been traveling to Sydney twice a year for some time, and have been a huge fan of Australian music and the local business for a number of years,” he explains.
“It will be great to have a presence on the ground to integrate with our other offices as we make it a priority to represent more Australian / New Zealand talent in the coming years.”
