Artist manager Bruce Kalmick on Wednesday (Dec. 16) shared more details about his recently launched company, WHY&HOW, which represents artists including BRELAND, Chase Rice, KALEO, and many others (full roster below).
Kalmick was previously a partner at Triple 8 Management, with several artists moving from Triple 8 to WHY&HOW.
Based in Austin, Texas with representatives across several major cities, WHY&HOW is a full-service artist management company with diversified ventures across music, entertainment, digital, branding and spirits, representing clients both domestically and globally.
Joining Kalmick on the WHY&HOW team are three artist managers who previously worked with him and are being elevated to Vice President roles: Rachel Cave (Belle Mt., ZZ Ward), Eddie Kloesel (Chase Rice, Bones Owens, Whiskey Myers) and Kelly Kresen (KALEO, Nox Holloway, FERBY).

Olson, Stubbs, Kaufmann and Bashaw previously worked with Kalmick, while DiPietro, Cankar, Strickland, Radford, Lindsey and Dahlstrom join the team as new hires.
Wednesday’s announcement says the organization plans to diversify with focuses ranging from publishing to educational and philanthropic endeavors. “We believe the foundation of success in any business starts with paying it forward,” notes Kalmick. “Our first initiative is to give back; both in charitable donations with W&H IMPACT, and also through our W&H EDU initiative further aiding educators by being a resource and encouraging a diverse group of future industry leaders attending universities around the world.”
