Gary Borman officially announced this morning that 26-time Grammy winner Alison Krauss has signed with Borman Entertainment for management. “Alison’s timeless talent defies stereotype or any ordinary definition,” says Borman. “It is truly a privilege to represent such a gifted artist.”
Previous manager Denise Stiff (DS Management) and Krauss amicably parted ways last February after a relationship that lasted almost 23 years with a mutual statement that said, “We have the utmost respect and love for one another.”
Krauss was first signed to Rounder Records at age 14. Over her nearly three-decade career she has earned multiple CMA, GMA, ACM and IBMA Awards and is the most decorated female artist in Grammy history. Krauss and band Union Station are currently recording a new album.
Borman Entertainment, formed in 1976, has offices in Los Angeles and Nashville. The Music City division is headed by industry veteran John Grady. In addition to Krauss, the firm represents Lady Antebellum, Keith Urban and Michael Franti.
MusicRow’s Humble Scribe first tipped the new Borman/Krauss pairing on April 14 saying, “The Scribe’s crystal ball is percolating like a Starbucks on steroids. Alison Krauss…soon to affiliate with a respected management company with Nashville and Los Angeles offices.”
