Steven Curtis Chapman and artist manager Mark Mattingly have launched a new management company together, The Stable Collective. The company will focus on growing Chapman’s music through brand development and touring as well as creating strategic partnerships outside the music realm. Future goals for the company, where Chapman will oversee artistic direction and songwriting and Mattingly will head business development, will include working with other emerging and developed artists. No other artists have been announced as part of the venture at this time.
Creative Trust, Inc. handled Chapman’s management for nearly 30 years, and Chapman will still work with Creative Trust for business management duties.
“After 30 years in this space, it’s an exciting thing to be able to bring my years of experience and passion for being a part of creating redemptive and impactful art and join forces with Mark and his expertise in the formation of The Stable Collective,” Steven Curtis Chapman said. “Mark has been a significant part of helping guide my career over the last few years. He’s a very talented, super hard working guy and I’m honored to be partnering with him. We’re excited to explore the new frontiers of music and find fresh ways and means to communicate ageless truth…celebrating and building on the great things that have been accomplished with a firm belief that even greater things are yet to come.”
“It’s such an honor to partner with someone who’s not only as accomplished as Steven is, but who’s also one of the most well respected people in our industry,” said Mattingly. “My years of working with Steven have allowed me to see firsthand that everything he does he does with excellence – from perfecting the craft of songwriting, to his ministry and the way he selflessly and tirelessly cares for people, to the wisdom and passion he’s pouring into this new endeavor we’re launching. We could not be more excited to find and create new, innovative ways to continue bringing great art to the world.”
