Alternative-pop artist Mod Sun has signed a management deal with Shelter Music Group, the company tells Billboard.
The firm is home to iconic artists and acts including ZZ Top, Joe Perry and Fleetwood Mac. Mod Sun will be represented by Carl Stubner alongside Jackson Stubner and A&R James Robinson.
“We at Shelter Music Group are beyond excited to announce MOD SUN as the first company signing of 2024,” Robinson shared in a statement. “His dynamic musical styles coupled with his diversity as an all-around artist make him a once in a generation kind of [talent]. We look forward to working closely with him to elevate the strong platform he has already established.”
Mod Sun is gearing up for a big year. On Dec. 28, he took to X (formerly known as Twitter) to write, “2024 i will release my best album” along with a fingers crossed emoji. He followed the sentiment with another post on Jan. 1, writing: “cool s— only all 2024…Welcome2myWorld”
Mod Sun, who entered the music industry as a rapper, released his debut full-length, Look Up, in 2015. It debuted atop Billboard‘s Heatseekers Albums chart and hit No. 120 on the Billboard 200. In 2021, he released his fourth album, Internet Killed the Rockstar, which leaned heavily into pop-punk (and was also his first release on his then-new label, Big Noise). That set hit No. 21 on the Heatseekers Albums chart, while the single “Flames,” which featured Avril Lavigne, became an alternative-rock hit, appearing on multiple genre-based charts and climbing to No. 21 on Billboard‘s Alternative Airplay tally. Last year, Mod Sun released his fifth album, God Save the Seen, which sonically followed suit with Rockstar.
Outside of his own music, Mod Sun has scored major co-writes alongside close friends like Machine Gun Kelly and blackbear.
