Matt Thorns

Matt Thorns

Born in Sheffield and raised in Oxford, Matt has lived in London for almost 10 years. His passion for music is born out of 20+ years of experience across a variety of industry professional roles. Working with Snafu Records, Soho Sonic Studios, ELAM Academy, Shoreditch Radio, and Brainchild Festivals all make him one of the most versatile artist managers we’ve met to date.

Originally from a creative background as a performer and producer, he knows the journey of artists first-hand. He also is acutely aware of what it takes to create a brilliant live act and always keeps the DJs on their toes by helping them push the boundaries of their creativity.

He’s been heavily involved in artist development working previously under Music Alignment with over 150+ emerging and established talent across multiple genres both in the UK and internationally. He’s coached many musicians and creatives over the years making him an experienced mentor with a skill for getting the best out of the people he works with.

He’s the perfect match for our JW DJ Agency team and is ambitious with the projects and direction he has for our JW Music Producers. He loves meeting people, travelling, and doing theatrical dancing with an umbrella (yes you read that right) which somehow manages to be very entertaining on various dance floors worldwide.
