HITS Daily Double

Ed Sheeran manager Stuart Camp has left Elton John’s management firm Rocket Music to go it alone with his star client. Camp will now helm his London-based Grumpy Old Management company independently which has been run as a JV with Rocket for the last three years.

Camp has worked for Rocket since 2007 where he signed Sheeran in 2011. The news arrived via a report from U.K. tabloid The Sun and the story was expanded on by trade title Music Week.

“Rocket was a great home to me for 10 years,” Camp told Music Week. “With invaluable support and care from Elton and everyone there, which I will always be grateful for."

John added: “After many incredible years of working together I would like to wish a heartfelt and fond farewell to Ed, Stuart and his team, with whom we have shared some amazing moments.

“It has been a very rewarding and exciting experience supporting them through their fantastic journey. We are immensely proud of all our achievements together and look forward to seeing Stu’s company and Ed’s success go from strength to strength.”
