Legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash has entered into an agreement with Irving Azoff’s Iconic Artists Group to acquire, develop, and expand his musical legacy.
The deal encompasses a wide range of assets from Nash’s career including his solo work, his wok with The Hollies; Crosby & Nash; Crosby, Stills & Nash; and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
“I’m looking forward to working with the Iconic team on various projects to further the legacy of CSN’s music and my own,” says Graham Nash about the deal.
“I am thrilled to welcome Graham Nash to the Iconic family, which now represents the works of all three of Crosby, Stills, and Nash,” Irving Azoff adds. “Graham is not only an incredible talent and true gentleman but a longtime friend as well. Back when I struck out on my own and started my first management company, Graham visited my office and came up with the name, ‘Front Line Management.’”
The Graham Nash deal follows Iconic’s acquisitions of assets of Cher, Joe Cocker, Nat King Cole, David Crosby, Dan Fogelberg, Dean Martin, Linda Ronstadt, and Stephen Stills. Iconic launched in January 2020 with the acquisition of a controlling interest in the legendary catalog of The Beach Boys.
“Graham Nash is truly an exceptional artist, who has influenced generations with his brilliant songwriting and inimitable voice,” adds Jimmy Edwards, President of Iconic. “Iconic is honored to welcome him to its roster of artists, which includes his former partners David Crosby and Stephen Stills.”
Graham Nash’s remarkable body of work began with his contributions to The Hollies from 1964 to 1968 including “Stop Stop Stop,” “On A Carousel,” among others. The classic union of Crosby, Stills, & Nash (& Young) include “Marrakesh Express,” “Pre-Dawn Roads,” and “Lady of the Island.” Nash’s career as a solo artist took off in 1971, beginning with the albums Songs for Beginners and Wild Tales. His latest effort, Now, was released worldwide on May 19.
