John Watson is the President of both John Watson Management and the label, Eleven: a music company.
Over the last 15 years every musician on the JWM and Eleven rosters has enjoyed either gold or multi-platinum success and the companies have also helped four separate artists achieve gold certifications in the United States.
John’s companies currently represent Birds of Tokyo, Cold Chisel, Gotye, Midnight Oil, Missy Higgins and The Presets. In addition to 25 years of music business experience he holds a BA (Hons) from UNSW, majoring in politics.
He has also studied law and in 2008 he earned a GDM from the Australian Graduate School of Management. “The music business can be wonderful but unfortunately it also leaves a lot of damaged people in its wake; Support Act is one way of helping colleagues who haven’t had much luck in their lives.”
