Harley Sears is pleased to announce a management deal with award-winning British fashion designer and musician KEANAN DUFFTY, and signing back on to manage singer-songwriter KRISTEEN YOUNG.
At age 14, Keanan Duffty was a founding member of the British punk band Sordid Details. He later formed Wonder Stories, a New Romantic group influenced by David Bowie and Roxy Music. Keanan is also lead singer in the band Slinky Vagabond, alongside Glen Matlock of The Sex Pistols, Clem Burke of Blondie, and Earl Slick (guitarist for David Bowie).
Kristeen Young is an American singer, songwriter and keyboardist, noted for her aggressive style and four-octave vocal range. Her latest release, V The Volcanic, was recorded with legendary producer Tony Visconti (David Bowie, T. Rex, Morrissey), who also contributed bass and guitar. Musically, the album marks a departure from earlier releases - returning to her roots, and drawing on the electro-funk grooves she loved in her Midwest childhood. Young will support Morrissey on his upcoming tour of South America.
Harley Sears has managed a variety of pop, punk, and rock bands spanning across America and Britain. He studied artist management at Berklee College of Music, and is a member of the Music Manager's Forum.
