Matt Maher

Activist Artists Management
Co-Founder and Partner

Matt Maher is a Co-Founding Partner of Activist Artists Management, a top-tier, full-service music and talent management, integrated media, and advisory firm with offices in Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, and Atlanta. Maher currently oversees the careers of artists such as Ben Rector, Bob Weir, Clare Bowen, Dead & Company, multiple GRAMMY Award-winner Dwight Yoakam, Empire of the Sun, Frankie Ballard, Grateful Dead, The Lumineers, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Nahko, and Medicine For The People.

Prior to co-founding Activist, Maher was a partner at Roar and the head of the Roar Nashville office where he helped to expand the roster and build the music careers of Dwight Yoakam, Ben Rector, and Zac Brown Band in their rise from regional success to a GRAMMY award-winning stadium act. He previously worked as the sole manager of the entertainment law practice at the Cahill Law Office. Maher’s background as the founder, songwriter, and lead singer of a touring act signed to Capitol Records and EMI Music Publishing afforded him the opportunity to develop a unique artist-oriented skill set and professional network, which has informed and enhanced his ability to effectively represent Activist’s top-tier roster. Maher has been featured on Billboard’s annual Nashville Power Players list, and joined the T.J. Martell Foundation Southern Region Board in 2014.
