Antony Bland

CandyShop Management
Antony spent a decade at Chrysalis Music, primarily running the International Department and working with artists such as Portishead, Spiritualized and Outkast, as well as developing songwriters from around the world. He tried (and miserably failed) to sign Jewel, Macy Gray and Ani Di Franco. He did not try to sign Blink 182 because he “didn’t get it” and that has haunted him ever since. From there he joined Rick Rubin’s American Recordings, spending the next decade again failing miserably at signing artists ranging from The Killers and Imagine Dragons to Avenged Sevenfold and Drowning Pool. In 2010, Antony co-founded CandyShop Management. Artists managed include Republic/PhotoFinish artists The Mowgli’s, Black Magnetic Recording artists The Rocketboys, Brooklyn independent troubadour Kevin Devine and Atlanta’s greatest new rock band, Baby Baby. In the past year CandyShop’s artists have generated over $1M in licensing and royalty income from TV, commercials, movies and video games.
