ATC Management announces a majority stake in Raw Power Management, with a roster including artists like Bring Me The Horizon, Bullet For My Valentine, and The Mars Volta.

London-based artist management firm ATC Management has acquired a majority stake in Raw Power Management, bringing together two of the leading artist management companies in the UK.

Under the new partnership, Raw Power’s UK team, including CEO Craig Jennings and commercial director Don Jenkins, will relocate to ATC Management’s HQ in London, while both companies’ Los Angeles-based operations will merge in the US.

Founded in 2006 by Craig Jennings, Raw Power Management represents rock artists like Bring Me The Horizon, Bullet For My Valentine, The Mars Volta, Don Broco, and The Damned.

“I am delighted to welcome the expertise and talent of Craig and the Raw Power team to ATC, along with their stellar roster of artists,” says ATC Group CEO Adam Driscoll. “At heart, our two companies have a common purpose — to support artists and empower them to achieve their creative and commercial goals. By coming together and combining forces, the capacity to deliver on those goals has increased substantially.”

“This is a significant milestone for ATC Management,” adds co-founder Brian Message. “Similar to Craig and the Raw Power team, ATC’s specialism is long-term talent development on a global scale — whether that’s breaking new acts or enabling iconic artists to continue pushing boundaries. There’s a mutual admiration of what each company has achieved in the past, and a real excitement of what we’ll achieve together in the future.”

As part of the independently owned ATC Group, which includes live booking agency ATC Live, merchandise company Sandbag, livestream business Driift, ATC Services, and ATC Experience, ATC Management represents over 60 artists, composers, and producers. Clients include Nick Cave, The Smile, PJ Harvey, Yaeji, The Hives, Sleaford Mods, Johnny Marr, Black Country, New Road, Kelela, Isobel Waller-Bridge, and Kwes.

Headquartered in London with operating offices in Los Angeles and New York, ATC Group has sought to strategically expand its range of services to artists and industry partners since listing on the Aquis Growth Market in 2021.

“For Raw Power, merging with ATC is very exciting,” Raw Power’s US president Matt Ash adds. “As two London-based companies with a well-established footprint in Los Angeles and a truly global outlook, we already share a strong crossover from a musical and commercial perspective. By coming together, we can now progress a wide range of new ideas that will add to the endeavors and ambitions of all our acts.”

“Along with Matt, Don, and the Raw Power team, I am delighted to begin a new era of the company with Adam, Brian, Craig, and everybody at ATC,” says Jennings. “It feels like we’re ready for ‘Raw Power Mark 2’ and this partnership fits perfectly with our ambitions for the company and our acts.”

“Both ATC and Raw Power value integrity, belief in the acts we look after, passion for the music, and doing everything for the benefit of our artists,” Jennings continues. “I have watched over the years as ATC have developed their artists on a global scale and have always had great admiration for the team and the way they go about things. This feels like a massive opportunity to take our artists to a whole new level. I feel that together we will be a powerhouse organization. It’s a very exciting time.”
