Who is Lifestyle Music?
Gene Pierson is the founder of Lifestyle Music and a respected veteran of the Australian Music business. Gene’s significant career moments stretch back to the Seventies with his involvement in the creation of AC/DC, the early development of INXS and even helping to bring ABBA to RCA Australia – their most successful market.
Gene has a history of breaking acts that others have considered “too hard”. He launched Ladysmith Black Mambazo here. Gene has never lost touch with mainstream music while exploring alternative channels for music like the tourism market (Indigenous) and Spa industry (relaxation music).
Sue Itzstein is General Manager of Lifestyle Music. Sue was a founding member of the Holborne Music team and has run the “engine room” at Indigenous Australia for over 10 years. Sue brings a wealth of experience in making the business happen. Whether it’s detailed logistics, artist relations or “impossible” production deadlines, Sue keeps our business on track to deliver great results for our artists, labels and retail partners.
