A MODEST! HONOR 

Modest! founders Richard Griffiths and Harry Magee will be the first managers to be honored with the Music Industry Trusts Award. The MITS ceremony on 11/4 will be held to aid the BRIT Trust and Nordoff Robbins.

Griffiths and Magee launched Modest! in 2003, which today represents One Direction, Little MixOlly Murs5 Seconds of Summer, Niall Horan, Katherine JenkinsAlison Moyet and the recently reunited Spice Girls.

 “I’ve been working with Richard and Harry for nearly 10 years now and if it wasn’t for them I don’t know if we all would have had half of the success we did,” Horan said. “On a personal note, I know they’ve worked their arses off for me and I can put it all down to the kind of relationship I share with them. They are basically like my uncles. We’ve been all over the world together, laughed together mostly, cried together at times but most importantly had many great nights on the wine together ahahah.

Moyet added: “Modest! are so much more than your sponge management. It is not running high days with hot acts that flags a manager as outstanding, it is the ability to find the heart beat when there is no discernible sign of commercial life and to platform it successfully. Modest! have given me the space and respect to be the creative I needed to be. I’m so grateful for that.”
