Todd Roberts, Partner

Todd is a creative strategist, producer and trendsetter from Los Angeles. As editor of seminal lifestyle magazine, Urb, Todd helped establish the careers of early creators in hip-hop, street art, and electronic music. Later a VP of A&R and head of Astralwerks Records in New York, Todd worked on the early careers of Phoenix, Basement Jaxx, Air, and Fatboy Slim. Under Todd’s leadership, Astralwerks sold millions of units, a first for an American electronic label.

In 2002, Todd left the recording industry to create Truant Media, acting as curator, strategist and creative director for music, art and brand projects. Early clients included Black Sabbath, Scion AV, and Verve Records, for which he produced the popular Verve Remixed series (nominated for a Grammy Award in 2005). Simultaneously, Todd also developed a music news site, The Daily Swarm, and a number of publishing entities, including PUTA, an art magazine which featured early work from Sage Vaughn, Marcel Dzama, Rostarr, and Darren Waterston.

Todd is an artist manager, executing all creative strategy, business development, licensing and tour production for his clients.

He lives in Glendale with his wife, two daughters, and dog. When not focused on a creative solution for you, he can be found on his yoga mat, snow/surf -board, or searching for the best taco truck anywhere.
