Peter Jenner - Sincere Management & Secretary General, IMMF
After gaining a First Class Honours Degree in Economics at Cambridge University, Peter Jenner became a Lecturer at the London School of Economics at the tender age of twenty-one.
His career in academia lasted for four years after which he left to devote his attention to managing an up-and-coming modern music group that had caught his attention. The band’s name was Pink Floyd.
Peter then put on a series of free concerts in London’s Hyde Park which culminated with The Rolling Stones in 1969.
Now, after more than twenty-five years in the music business, the list of clients he has worked with reads like a Who’s Who of musical successes. He has managed T Rex (fronted by Marc Bolan), Ian Dury, Roy Harper, The Clash, The Disposable Heroes of Hiphopracy, Robyn Hitchcock and Baaba Maal.
Peter has managed Billy Bragg’s career for more than fifteen years and also manages Eddi Reader (the voice of Fairground Attraction). He is also chairman of the IMMF, a director of the UK MMF (Music Managers’ Forum), a council member of AURA (Association of United Recording Artists) and a director of Artspages.
Last year he worked in tandem with Jenny Toomey to put together the successful and provoking Tell Us the Truth Tour of the USA, featuring amongst others, Billy Bragg, The Nightwatchman, Steve Earle and Lester Chambers, to raise political, media and fair trade awareness.
