ESC Daily editor starts artist management agency

Preparations for Eurovision 2017 have already begun as Northern Irish artist management and promotion agency Cana Management have announced today a sub-division aimed at finding, working and promoting the best upcoming music talent to head to Ukraine next year.

Cana Management is formed by Brandon McCann, press editor at ESCDaily with over four years experience writing editorials, providing music consultation specifically for Eurovision. He has also worked at the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards featuring artists such as Coldplay, Lady GaGa, Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber. Having self-produced Europe Calling in partnership with, Brandon is now looking for upcoming singers, songwriters, musicians and more – interested in participating in Eurovision 2017.

“We want to focus on upcoming artists, supporting them throughout their progression towards established success,” says McCann. “Through my work at ESC Daily, I have been able to build a lot of knowledge about the Eurovision Song Contest and I have seen the immense impact of that journey on a young artists’ life. It is almost impossible to do it on your own.”

Cana Management wants to help aspiring Eurovision participants by providing all the personnel and tools necessary to produce the finest music in terms of songwriting, production and visual concept. McCann: “We’ll prepare for your full journey including touring, press relations and financial security.”
