Blackstar London has announced two new hires as well as the opening of a new office in Los Angeles.

Founded in January 2018 by Olivia Hobbs (pictured), Blackstar has worked with music artists including Aurora, Health, Alice Phoebe Lou, Melt Yourself Down and Zuzu, offering services including campaign management, social media planning and digital marketing.

The Brixton-based office has hired Breyner Baptista as Campaign Strategist and Holly Glanvill as Social Coordinator.

And Matt Cohen is to lead the new LA office.

Hobbs, who has previously worked for Universal Music Group and Fiction Records, said: “I can’t believe we’re launching an LA office! The expansion of the team and company is as vital as it is exciting.

“We’ve welcomed so many more acts and labels to the roster in the last 12 months. Having an arm in LA helps us bridge time-zones and broaden global growth possibilities for our clients.”
