Exile Studios Launches Exile Music Division – Billboard


Exile Content Studio, a growing media and entertainment company focused on producing audiovisual content focused on Spanish speakers, has launched a music division.

Exile Music will provide touring and management services, but will also serve as a recording label and publisher. The company will be led by newly appointed president of music Jeremy Norkin, a veteran talent agent who was formerly at UTA. Norkin will report to Exile CEO Alejandro Uribe.

In turn, Santiago Duque, a former label manager at Rimas Entertainment and Sony Music, will oversee artist management for Exile, reporting to Norkin. Colombian star Fonseca is an investor and will serve as an advisor to the division.

Exile, whose founder is Isaac Lee, the former chief content officer for Univision, has already co-produced Netflix series Todo Va a Estar Bien with Diego Luna as showrunner; docuseries Un Sueño Real, about Real Madrid’s women’s soccer team for HBO Spain; and children’s series Club Mundo Kids, in addition to several podcasts. The music division, say executives, was a natural extension.

“Adding music is a natural progression with musical talent becoming their own brands and crossing artistic disciplines,” Norkin said in a statement.

Uribe added, “We are proud to announce the expansion of Exile Content Studio with the creation of a new music division aimed at unlocking untapped commercial and artistic opportunities for new and established talent on the global stage.”

Exile has already signed two up-and-coming artists to its management arm: Dutch-born, Puerto Rico-raised female singer Bodine, and Panamenian-born Chicocurlyhead, who blends R&B, reggaeton, trap and pop in English and Spanish, and launched his new single on Feb. 18.

On the touring side, Exile has booked performances for multiple artists, including Cypress Hill, Hanson and Monsieur Perine.
