Blythe Scokin and John Geraghty have joined forces to launch a new management and entertainment company, rogue.
With a focus on the development, strategy, and bold storytelling of creators through music, social impact, film, TV and more, the team has been a driving force behind the careers of Ingrid Andress and rising pop star FLETCHER.
In 2020, Geraghty was featured in Billboard’s PRIDE issue as one of their top execs. For the last several years, he has independently developed FLETCHER into a star on-the-rise, with nearly 750 million streams worldwide (with her leak of The S(ex) Tapes immediately reaching No. 1 on iTunes across genres), sold-out global tours, an end-credit title and single from the Margot Robbie-produced Promising Young Woman, and iHeartRadio nomination for Best New Pop Artist in 2020. FLETCHER’s 2019’s breakthrough debut “Undrunk” was the fastest-rising single at pop radio from a new artist in the last five years.
Scokin has been the force behind breakout country star and 3x Grammy nominee Ingrid Andress. Her debut single, “More Hearts Than Mine,” topped the charts and was certified Platinum within a year of her debut. Andress was the first country artist to be named one of Apple Music’s Up Next, and was nominated for two CMA Awards, an ACM Award, and was set to tour with Keith Urban, Dan + Shay, Thomas Rhett, and Tim McGraw in 2020. Prior to Andress, Scokin managed superstar Ciara while working at Friends at Work, brokering her deal with Warner Records and brands like Revlon and Calvin Klein. She started her career at Endeavor working on film, music, and fashion projects for artists from Tyler the Creator to Sam Smith, fashion house Rodarte, and Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton.
“After knowing one another for almost five years now, we knew it was time to come together once 2020 hit,” Geraghty said. “Blythe is the most loyal friend, brilliant manager, and greatest example of integrity I’ve ever experienced in this business. I couldn’t be more excited to “go rogue” and to be developing such important projects together with one team.”
“I’m so proud to join forces with John to bring our artists together under one roof. We’ve been fortunate to work with two groundbreaking artists in both the country and pop genres who have become our family and are always ready and willing to go rogue with us,” said Scokin. “There’s no one with better taste and more heart than John. He’s the best of the best at finding and developing talent from the ground up.”
Since establishing rogue. in 2020, Scokin and Geraghty have added New Zealand’s Thomston to their roster, with other projects in the works.
The company will be based in both Los Angeles, California and Nashville, Tennessee.
