Takhar, involved in launching the careers of One Direction, Il Divo, Little Mix, Fifth Harmony and others, said “Kyn, by definition, is a company founded on the simple principle of putting relationships at the center of everything that we do.

“There has never been a more exciting time in our industry to be next to and aligned to the artist, providing them with the tools to become our next global superstars, whether that be hit songs or building their global audiences. This state of the art venture with Live Nation allows the artist to thrive and realize every part of value from what they ultimately create. I can’t wait to get started.”
