Andrew Snape has been managing bands for the best part of a decade. He started out running DIY shows in his hometown of Watford, England whilst working various work placements at companies such as Sanctuary Music, Brixton Academy and Saddle Creek Records. His first full time job in the industry was as the junior marketing manager for Atticus Clothing (the punk rock clothing brand set up by Blink 182). It was in this job that he found his feet and started to build the relationships that would go on to navigate and build his career.

His first step into management was with the band Young Guns. He discovered them via friends and first checked them out playing in the basement of a pub in London to seven people in early 2008. Over the next three years, Andrew worked with the band, building them to one of the most exciting acts in the UK rock scene and eventually crossing them over to the US market where they signed a deal with Wind Up Records and achieved a number one single at Active Rock Radio with their track ‘Bones’.

In 2011, he joined Raw Power Management, the UK based management company that has guided the careers of bands such as Bring Me The Horizon, Bullet For My Valentine, Of Mice & Men and At The Drive In. He spent three years in the UK office of Raw Power, before making a move to the company’s LA offices, where he is one of the senior managers on the team.

Andrew currently works with a varied roster of acts that includes Of Mice & Men, Young Guns, Cane Hill, Le Butcherettes, Selfish Things, TiLLie and the producer Drew Fulk. As someone who grew up in bands and going to DIY hardcore shows, this will always be a part of his ethos and working method.”
