MusicScott Maclachlan knows better than anyone how to succeed in the music business.
Scott runs Saiko Management, a boutique artist management company with bases here and New York managing artists as such as Sol3 Mio, Mt Eden and Parson James, LEISURE, Thomston and Glades.
When he spoke at #smcakl three years ago, a young artist he'd signed to Universal Music started gaining attention with a song "Royals". He spent the following two years managing Lorde through her rise to international superstardom.
Previously Scott spent a decade as A+R Director and Head of Business Development at Universal Music, having stared in the music business packing boxes before rising to Head of A+R at Jive Records through the wonder years of Britney, Backstreet Boys and R.Kelly.
