British breakout Arlo Parks has joined the Blue Raincoat Artists family thanks to a partnership between manager Ali Raymond's Beatnik Creative and Blue Raincoat.

Beatnik’s roster will operate under the Blue Raincoat management banner. The firm also reps rapper/producer/singer Miso Extra.

Jeremy Lascelles, CEO of Blue Raincoat Music Group, called Raymond “one of the brightest of the new generation of British managers.”

Said Raymond, “I’ve been an independent manager for 10 years but meeting Jeremy and Robin [Millar, Chairman of Blue Raincoat Group] made the decision to join a bigger family an easy choice. It’s a new chapter for Beatnik and Blue Raincoat. The sky’s the limit.”

Parks hit #3 in the U.K. with her Mercury Prize-winning debut album, Collapsed in Sunbeams (Transgressive), in 2021. The set earned three BRIT nominations and a win for Best New Artist. Parks is up for this year's Grammy Awards for Best New Artist and Best Alternative Music Album.
