Music Glue

Neil Robertson has worked in music for 20 years. He managed Scottish icons Belle & Sebastian for 10 years, helping them become one of the biggest indie bands in the world, with acclaimed albums selling millions of copies and winning a highly-controversial and memorable Brit Award. He founded and co-curated ‘The Bowlie Weekender’, the residential festival which became All Tomorrow’s Parties, and managed Banchory Merchandise, an online merch company which worked with B&S, Snow Patrol, Franz Ferdinand and Mogwai.

In 2006 he quit management and moved to Australia, becoming label manager for V2/ Cooperative Music (later [PIAS]/ Liberator) as well as running his own label, Scotland Yard Records, signing Architecture In Helsinki and Laura Jean. In 2016, after 10 years working with acts including Bloc Party, Phoenix, CHVRCHES, alt-J and Childish Gambino, he left to become Australian head of A&R for e-commerce specialists Music Glue.
