Artist & Manager Awards 2015

PPL is delighted to have been presented with the opportunity to sponsor the prestigious Peter Grant Award at the Artist & Manager Awards 2015, which will be presented to Jim Beach, longstanding manager of Queen.

Presented by the MMF and FAC, the aim of the awards is to reflect the synergy and mutual agenda shared by the two organisations, as well as to celebrate the art of the artist, the craft of the manager and the collaborative nature of their relationship.

Jim Beach has been involved with the career of loved, lauded and legendary rock band Queen since January 1975 when he was the partner heading up London law firm Harbottle and Lewis’ fledgling music practice. He gave up the law and started managing them in 1978. Jim has never sought the limelight preferring to guide the bands career quietly but incredibly effectively from the backroom. Band management is ideally about a partnership between artist and manager to develop and sustain the career of the former.

Jon Webster, CEO of the MMF, said “Queen are into their fifth decade and are currently enthralling audiences on a European tour. Jim Beach has been at their side advising, protecting and guiding throughout their ascent of so many pinnacles in their live and recorded career. We are very proud that Jim will be joining us to receive this award on March 26th.”
