Moe Shalizi to begin own management firm following departure from Red Light
Red Light management took a loss this November in Moe Shalizi, who’s officially departing the firm to begin his own management company. Shalizi, who’s notably cultivated the careers of megastars like JAUZ, Marshmello, Ghastly, and more, will be taking all of his clients with him on his new venture. Both him and Red Light have yet to release official statements on their separation.
Shalizi certainly has the skillset to create a powerhouse agency on his own. Since helping Marshmello break into the EDM scene in 2015, he’s since helped him become one of the most followed crossover stars with $44 million in earnings this year alone, and a YouTube channel that’s now the platforms 36th most-followed. Moe got his start at a young age, making the leap from event promotion in his early twenties to artist management in 2014. Prior to his work with Marshmello, his first major breakthrough client had been JAUZ, who helped catalyze his move to Red Light Management.
