About Milk & Honey Labs
Milk & Honey Labs is a new media division of Milk & Honey Music + Sports that officially launched February 2022. The group run by long-time music manager and Milk & Honey executive Alex Harrow is a deep dive into web3, a new moniker for the next gen of the internet. Harrow had a vision to merge the company’s traditional Hollywood relationships and deep understanding of the entertainment business with web3, being right at the starting blocks as these nascent technologies, and asset classes such as NFT, launch. Similar to the rest of its entertainment business, Labs is focused on representing talent. The group will represent top tier names and offer services including advocating and forging new norms on deals, creating business opportunities, and taking their content to market. This new digital lab and creative studio will focus on NFTs, and all areas of web3, representing some of the most blue chip artists, celebrities, brands properties and IP in the space, including its initial “Man and the Beat” NFT project which is a collaboration between some of the biggest artists in music and unreleased Picasso artwork. Milk & Honey’s heritage is representing the world’s most successful songwriters, record producers, and music artist talent in a management capacity. The company’s roster boasts nearly a billion albums sold globally across every prominent genre in music with offices in Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, Dallas, London, Amsterdam and Sydney. In 2021, the company launched a sports agency that now represents 20 athletes in the NFL as a way to further grow and diversify its entertainment practice.
