A&R WORLDWIDE will launch A&R WORLDWIDE AUSTRALASIA. The joint venture is in partnership with CHUGG ENTERTAINMENT, one of AUSTRALASIA's most-respected live entertainment and artist development companies based out of SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, and with offices in NEW ZEALAND and SINGAPORE.
The agreement between the two companies was signed in BEVERLY HILLS, CA last week by A&R WORLDWIDE Pres./Founder SAT BISLA and CHUGG ENTERTAINMENT Founder/CEO MICHAEL CHUGG. The deal sees A&R WORLDWIDE adding to its existing presence in NORTH AMERICA and EUROPE with A&R WORLDWIDE GERMANY that was launched earlier in the year and has already seen multiple successes for international acts, executives and companies launching into GERMANY and mainland EUROPE, as well as German and European creative interests tapping into A&R WORLDWIDE's global network.
BISLA said, "On behalf of my entire LOS ANGELES-based team, I'm extremely excited about the launch of A&R WORLDWIDE AUSTRALASIA (added to the recent addition of A&R WORLDWIDE GERMANY), which furthers A&R WORLDWIDE's impact internationally and helps us expand our efforts to the needs of those we work with, as well as our overall discovery, development and consulting efforts to and from AUSTRALASIA. I've had the pleasure of knowing MICHAEL CHUGG for the past 17 years and he has been an incredible mentor, inspiration and friend to me. His genuine passion, caring, work ethic and overall integrity for people and music are a core part of him as a human being. MICHAEL and his team are on the forefront of some of the most exciting new music and creative and business inspirations that are emanating out of AUSTRALASIA. AUSTRALASIA is a burgeoning economic market with incredible talent and opportunities, and I could not be prouder of teaming up with a partner such as MICHAEL and CHUGG ENTERTAINMENT."
CHUGG added, "SAT and his hardworking team are genuinely wonderful people and I can't wait for my team and I to work with them under the A&R WORLDWIDE AUSTRALASIA business. We have been working towards getting more involved in local artist development for years, and the relationship with Sat and his team will expand our efforts and give us a global base to help develop Australian artists and bring international talent into our home markets. It's a very exciting time for all of us."
