Founder/CEO,
1851 House Inc.

Byron Wilson is the Founder/CEO of 1851 House Inc., a talent management company he founded in 2015. Working exclusively in the music industry for the past 8 years Byron’s career started in Vancouver, British Columbia. It was here that he found himself immersed with creatives all living under one roof including his first client SonReal. Together Byron and SonReal learned the business from scratch and gained an international fanbase and a global touring business. In 2016, Byron partnered with Mauricio Ruiz to add singer-songwriter Jessie Reyez to the roster. Jessie is a Grammy-nominated Platinum selling artist who has garnered over 1 billion streams world-wide.

Byron’s deep knowledge of the industry and genuine passion for connecting his clients’ artistry with fans worldwide have led to a string of accolades for his roster. While he is across all traditional aspects of his artists’ careers – it is his enthusiasm for exploring innovative release strategies and new trends that is the key differentiator in the success of his clients.
