David Swartz

David is originally from Los Angeles and has been based in Berlin since 2015. He has worked around music for two decades, primarily as an independent entrepreneur. Live music served as the foundation of his initial love of music and it was within the live sector of the business that David spent the early part of his career — he worked as a concert promoter and then booking agent before settling into artist management. After a year of living in Berlin, following advice of a longtime friend and mentor Merck Mercuriadis, David took a position with !K7 who were expanding their artist management division. In early 2019, after a few years there, he decided to move on to his next chapter not wanting to be held back by the limitations of working for a company. Shortly after David’s departure, Mykki Blanco as well as FaltyDL (both artists who had previously been working with David at !K7) made the decision to leave to follow him, and so they became the basis of the roster of what has now become Singular Arts Group. Starting in 2021, we are happy that David is going to share some of his massive industry experience and knowledge with our community at Music Pool Berlin.
