Shania Twain Signs New Management Deal

UMG Nashville/Mercury Records artist Shania Twain has signed a new management deal with newly-formed Sandbox Management. Managing Shania is her long-time UMG publicist Jason Owen, who exits the label on September 3.

"Shania and I have been together for over eight years in my role at UMG and to start this new journey with her is a true privilege for me," Owen told Country Aircheck today.

"We have some exciting plans in the works that will expand her worldwide career into new areas of music and entertainment, which will all be revealed very soon."

It's the "Shania" watch! ...

What's going on with Shania? ...

We've heard about new recordings and we're aware that she will have her own TV show on Oprah's new network ...

But what else ??? ...

Well, she has a new manager and a new management company ...
Jason Owen who handled Shania's account at Universal Music in Nashville has left the rceord company to form the management company "Sandbox Entertainment" ... his first client is Shania Twain ... Owen says, "Shania and I have been together for over eight years in my role at UMG and to start this new journey with her is a true privilege for me. We have some exciting plans in the works that will expand her worldwide career into new areas of music and entertainment, which will all be revealed very soon." ... from Country Aircheck ...


Shania, you've bee gone too long ... welcome back! ...

Hope it means new music too.

Owen (the shoe guy) handled her PR from the side of the label for years now.
I wouldn't say we knew really what he did (and how well he did it), but apparently Shania trusts him.

I guess it is hard to judge what the screw ups behind Up! Were caused by.

Jason Owen Leaves UMG To Form New Company
August 25, 2010 at 7:53 AM (PT)

JASON OWEN has stepped down from his post as SVP/Artist Development and Marketing for UNIVERSAL MUSIC NASHVILLE, to launch his own company, SANDBOX ENTERTAINMENT. The new company will be a full-service management and entertainment company, opening its doors on SEPTEMBER 7th with SHANIA TWAIN signed on as the first client.

OWEN will remain connected to UMG in a consultancy role, working with Chairman/CEO LUKE LEWIS. Prior to joining UNIVERSAL, OWEN, served as Dir./Marketing and Talent Relations at COLUMBIA TriSTAR TELEVISION. His background also includes stints with SPELLING ENTERTAINMENT and NEW LINE CINEMA/FINE LINE FEATURES.

“SHANIA and I have been together for over eight years in my role at UMG and to start this new journey with her is a true privilege for me,”said OWEN. “SHANIA is a true music icon who has broadened Country music's boundaries and brought many new fans to the genre. We have some exciting plans in the works that will expand her worldwide career into new areas of music and entertainment, which will all be revealed very soon. I am honored to work with someone of such talent and creativity who has had a lasting influence on all genres of music.”

“During my time at UNIVERSAL, I’ve also worked with many of the world’s most talented artists and many of the most dynamic people in the business, most notably, my mentor and friend, LUKE LEWIS. I am fortunate to be able to continue my relationship with him and UMG, while branching out with this exciting new venture.”

“JASON has done a tremendous job in helping us to guide the careers of many of our artists,” said LEWIS. “While we are sorry to see him move on, we certainly understand it. We wish him only the very best and are delighted that we will continue to work with him in his consultancy role.

What is important is he knew what he was doing, and Shania trusts hims and has confidence in him.

Well, let's go ahead and see what happens. He sounds like he has the background. Now let's see if he has the success gene for Shania as well. I'm glad to hear something positive regarding music finally after a long vacuum.

At this point, Im thinking about new music soon.
Probably next year.
Shania said that she was always writing new music.
But there was the divorce and she lost not only her husband but her producer too.
And I think that Shania and Jason Owen was talking about that step from time.

Owen and Shania have worked togheter for 8 years...
September 3 Owen left UMG...
October 25 announcement about the new production company and Shania as first client...
I am the only one that is not thinking that they are not just coincidences?!?

Sounds like she is in control, unlike with q prime. It seems like she is taking the reigns like when it was her and Mary.
