Michael Holyk

Forging his early career at the BBC – director Michael Holyk was responsible for the growth and success of their online content – since Radio 1 & 1Xtra, Michael has built relationships with many emerging and successful artists – including Sam Smith and Jake Bugg – meaning he has been able to get a real insight in to how they work and who they are. This strength, to be able to get to the heart of what the artist and music needs, is Michael’s super power – and means he can transfer this skill to any form of content.
