BLACK DIAMONDS ARE VINTEN'S BEST FRIEND

Behold Black Diamond Management—the just-announced company founded by biz player Katie Vinten, who just last year left her role as Warner Chappell's SVP and Co-Head of A&R to launch FACET Records and FACET Publishing with longtime colleague Justin Tranter.

FACET Publishing—home to Kennedi Lykken (Ariana Grande, Dua Lipa, Chainsmokers, Jonas Brothers), Jason Gil (Katy Perry), Wes Period (FACET/Interscope Records), Shea Diamond (FACET/Asylum), Brandon Colbein (ZAYN, Hayley Kiyoko) and The Roommates (Aaron Carpenter)—maintains a partnership with Warner Chappell. 

Vinten is also now holding down consultancy roles as Rita Ora's A&R at Warner Records and as an aid to Julia Michaels, Kygo, K Flay, Christina Aguilera and others at Warner Chappell.

For the time being, the Los Angeles-based Black Diamond solely represents writers and producers, but that is expected to change in due time. The initial roster will include Grammy-nominated songwriter Justin Tranter (Justin Bieber, Imagine Dragons, Bebe Rexha, Selena Gomez, Jonas Brothers), Zach Skelton (Jonas Brothers, Lil Nas X), Boy Matthews (Gallant, Hayden James etc) and Caroline Pennell.

“I’ve always loved black diamonds,” shared Vinten. “One of the first times I went skiing, I decided to forego the intermediate trail and try the black diamond after some quiet teasing and nudging from my biggest fan, my now-husband, Aaron Vinten. I went flying off my skiis, but I got back up. I’ll never forget the experience. I made it. I try to recapture that feeling as much as possible in my life. I realized you can do so much more than you think you can, you just have to try. As a manager, record executive and publisher, I’m serving clients by showing them their greatest potential.”
