Jason Mraz, Longtime Manager Split; Green Day Join Crush Management

Another longtime management partnership has called it a day. Or in the case of Jason Mraz and Bill Silva, 18 years. A rep for the singer confirms to Variety that the two have “split amicably.” Silva began managing Mraz in 1999. Four years later, the San Diego singer-songwriter saw a Billboard Hot 100 top 20 hit with “The Remedy,” and in 2008 reached No. 6 with “I’m Yours.” Mraz also received multiple Grammy nominations, winning twice.

Silva, whose BSE houses Bill Silva Presents, a concert promotion and touring division, also books the Hollywood Bowl with Andrew Hewitt. Mraz is still listed as a client on the BSE website.

Further up the coast, Bay Area band Green Day has officially signed with Crush Music’s management arm, joining a roster that includes Lorde, Sia, Fall Out Boy, and Panic! At the Disco.  Jonathan Daniel, co-founder of Crush, is representing the band. The pop-punk trio — singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tre Cool — parted ways with Pat Magnarella after 21 years together, as previously reported by Variety.

    Film Review: 'The Dirt'

    A long time ago, the words sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll carried a hint of danger. The lifestyle did, too, but I’m talking about the phrase. It used to sound cool (back around the time the word “cool” sounded cool). But sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll has long since passed into the realm [...]
