Three Six Zero is an international entertainment and music management company headquartered in Los Angeles. The company specializes in the fields of music, film, television and technology. It was founded in London in 2007.

History[edit]

The company was founded by Mark Gillespie and Dean Wilson. In July 2010, Three Six Zero forged a partnership with Jay Z's U.S. entertainment company Roc Nation where they began operating in Los Angeles and New York.[1][2] One of the first collaborations that appeared from the deal was Calvin Harris and Rihanna's multi platinum hit and 10-week-long Billboard Number 1 record, We Found Love.[3]

In June 2014, Three Six Zero announced a publishing and records partnership with Warner Bros. Records and Warner/Chappell Music. During the time of the Warner Brothers Records deal Three Six Zero released the 5th LP of British Electronic outfit The Prodigy - The Day Is My Enemy.[4] The imprint's first signees are electronic producers GTA, Australian DJ duo Cut Snake, and singer Anabel Englund.[5] In September 2014, Gillespie announced in a Billboard article that they had begun to work with Grammy Award-winning artist Frank Ocean.[6]

In February 2015, the company announced the formation of Three Six Zero Entertainment — a new full-service management company aimed at representing clients in the film, television and literary industries. David A. Unger, formerly of talent agency Resolution, was named as the co-CEO of the new division, alongside Mark Gillespie.[7]

In February 2016 manager Brian Young joined the group bringing clients such as Bret Easton Ellis and Nicolas Jarecki.[8] In June of that same year the company signed Travis Scott as a client.[9]

In July 2018, it was announced in a Music Business Worldwide article that the company signed Louis Tomlinson from One Direction. He was co-managed by Mark Gillespie and Matt Vines.[10]

Charity[edit]

In 2012, Three Six Zero and Roc Nation launched their annual charity event to benefit Los Angeles Children’s Hospital Orthopaedic Center as a post-Grammy event. The first installment of the event was held on February 12, 2012 and featured performances from Rihanna, Calvin Harris, Deadmau5, Michael Woods, and Chris Lake. The February 10, 2013 event featured performances from Deadmau5, Kylie Minogue, Crookers, Timbaland + Demetrius, and DJ Reflex.[11] Both events raised over $250,000 for the charity.[12]
