UNIFIED Music Group has announced the signing of chart-topping Australian group Boy & Bear with UNIFIED Artist Management and their booking agency Lonely Lands.
The indie folk group formed in 2009 and has since grown into one of the country’s most successful bands over the past decade. The group’s signing with UNIFIED Music Group comes at the right time for Boy & Bear. They recently returned to the studio to start work on their highly anticipated fifth studio album.
In recent months, the group has also returned to the top of festival lineup announcements and sold several front page shows, most notably at the State Theater in Sydney.
Their new team includes Aidan McLaren and Joe Miles of UNIFIED Artist Management, and they’ve also partnered up with the Lonely Lands boutique booking agency and agent Harry Moore.
“We couldn’t be more excited to work with Boy & Bear,” said McLaren. “It’s such a compelling group. Incredible songwriters, incredible live performance. They have accomplished so much already and yet there is so much more to come. I can’t wait for people to hear the new music the guys are working on and see what’s in store for them over the next 18 months and beyond. Watch this place. “
Moore added, “I’ve always been a huge fan of the band since their formation. It is an absolute honor and privilege to work alongside this incredible group and team. “
Hopes will be high for Boy & Bear’s next fifth album. Their previous fourth LP reached the top 10 of the ARIA Albums chart, including two numbers one with 2013 Harlequin dream and 2015 Limit of love.
