Grabbitz Signs With Managers Adam LaRue and Shawn Dailey

Veteran music managers Shawn Dailey and Adam LaRue have signed shape-shifting alt-rock and indie dance producer, singer and songwriter Grabbitz, born of this earth as American artist Nick Chiari and the vocalist behind the refreshingly dangerous Rezz collaboration “Someone Else.”

With cutting lyrics soaked in double entendre, the 2020 single has an insanely infectious sound signature that weaves in and out of its verse, chorus, bridge structure with no-frills guitar chords and grinding industrial electronica. The crank-the-volume nod to Nine Inch Nails peaked at No. 17 on the Billboard Alternative songs chart on July 4 and hit No. 23 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart in May.

Grabbitz has collaborated with One Republic, deadmau5, Pendulum, NGHTMRE and said he made a management shift this year because “Shawn and Adam understand my vision, short- term and long. They’re all around good energy, and as a team we will take this to the next level. I hope they’re not vampires.”

Dailey and LaRue currently manage Jerry Harrison from Talking Heads and The Modern Lovers and songwriter/producer Mark Evans. Dailey manages Grammy-winning producer Boo Mitchell and New York Times best-selling writer Anthony Bozza.

LaRue manages Australia hardcore outfit DREGG which signed with Epitaph Records last year, and The Homeless Gospel Choir.

“Grabbitz is the most diverse talent I’ve come across in years. I’m excited to explore all aspects of his vision,” says Dailey, while LaRue continues: “It’s very rare that you come across a talent such as Nick’s. It’s going to be a fun and fruitful partnership.”
