Donovan Johnson (6th Floor Management)

Though the 6th Floor management business is relatively new, I have been working with artists for over 10 years. More recently I was selected for CMI’s Passport Music Export Summit program in 2021 and MMF’s Bespoke mentorship program in 2022 which really helped me grow further as an artist manager. I have been mentored by David Leigh (ToBi), David Click Cox (Sate, Jully Black) and Gavin Sheppard (Remix project) and my current distribution partners are Public Records / Fontana North for Kordoroy Floyd’s releases and Foundation Media for Charlie Noiir’s releases.

Over the last 2 years, I have supported Kordoroy Floyd and some successes include:

– Karla Moy mentioning “Kordo 2” as her favourite new project for 2020
– Saturday Spotlight feature in 2020
– NXNE 2022 performance
– Opener for OVO’s Smiley in 2022
– featured on many major playlists on both Spotify, Apple music and Amazon music to the total of 1 million + subscribers including Fresh Finds, Fresh Finds: Hip hop, New Music Friday, Northern Bars, NMD, Northern Touch and Northern Vibes
