Nick Knowles had his first professional experience in and around music working across world-renowned magazine titles which included Q (r.i.p.), MOJO, Kerrang! and Mixmag. During his award winning decade in the media, Nick first visited Iceland in 2004 for the inaugural Iceland Airwaves Kerrang! Night. Having had a long fascination with Iceland and a certain female singer since her debut release in the mid-90s, Nick was immediately smitten.
A year living and working in Iceland in 2010 saw Nick transition from media marketing into management and on his return to the UK to co-manage a roster of artists with fellow Iceland aficionado Chris Morrison, known for Blur & Gorillaz (amongst others).
As manager Nick helps steer the ship for the multi-award nominated, multi-disciplinary chamber-doom icon sóley as well Sony-signed pianist and composer Eydís Evensen, the latter with whom he’s worked with since her very first show (at Iceland Airwaves in 2018) and subsequent career launch in 2021. Additionally Nick consults on and for the media. He can also occasionally be found in Kaffibarinn embarrassing himself with his terrible Icelandic.
