Max grew up in Devon, England before moving to Stockholm, Sweden, where he formally studied songwriting. After this, he moved to London to hone his craft at the Institute of Contemporary Music. Recently he has worked with Sanctuary Music Vault’s Eric Appapoulay, David McEwan and Cassell the Beatmaker. Singer-songwriter Max is an artist whose unique vocals sound incredible with an acoustic guitar alone, and with the addition of a band, his music has taken a whole other dimension. Max has always been shy and in early 2015 he was approached by both The Voice and X Factor. He auditioned for both and got through each round until he had to chose which show to enter. The rest is history. Max chose X Factor and his voice was instantly recognisable. Max Stone made it all the way to the live shows and admits his and X Factor’s song choices did not best suit his voice. Max now wants to collaborate with other musicians having learnt a lot from X Factor and is now ready and focused to deliver his dream..

Alien/Alien Uncovered are a group put together by 141a Management with the aim to develop a girl group with the same swagger as Jessie J. Working under the title CXV24, the group was put through singing and dance lessons and the management filmed a video diary of their development. The process took over 2 years in which various girls who couldn't cut the mustard were replaced. Even before the X Factor, the girls were invited to perform at the prestigious Popcorn event at Heaven in which they were acclaimed. A year and 3 months after we started the project we finally settled for the line up with included Temple, Shae, Frankie, Madison, Yaz and Natalie, and this is when we suggested the name Alien. Similar to Max Stone, X Factor had made enquires about Alien appearing in the show and in 2015 the girls finally signed up. Preparing Alien for X Factor meant they were rehearsing 5 days a week at the 141a Management rehearsal rooms. The girls did extremely well in X Factor and made the live shows..

Every once in a while we chose an artist or group who we are developing to feature in one of our social campaigns. The last artist was Jessie J who featured in the “Don’t Trigger” campaign which was funded by the Home Office and Number 10. Our latest campaign, “Don’t Touch It. It’s Mine” addresses the issue of child abuse at Shirley Oaks and other south London children’s homes. After speaking to all our artists, Ether Mia were chosen not only because they empathised with the victims (i.e. they burst into tears when we played them the song), their unique vocal talents combined with their classical and contemporary dance training enabled us to push the boundaries of pop music whilst still retaining the theme of a campaign song. The girls own music is equally expressive and fuses all art forms in such a way that makes them progressive. Ether Mia consist of Lucy, who attended the Royal Ballet School; Sophie who attended Bird College to study dance which included Cunningham and Graham Technique; and Millie who gained a place at Laine Theatre Arts.

Dolly is a new artist in development who we discovered whilst she was auditioning for Alien. Similar to Jessie J, she produced a jaw dropping moment when she sang for us at 15 years old. Needless to say we are excited about working with her and producing an album with justifies her talent..
