Still proudly independent, Mark Lippmann has built Manchester based Scruff of the Neck from its humble DIY beginnings, into the wide-reaching organisation it is today. With a strong emphasis on the development of new artists, Mark has enabled Scruff of the Neck to go from strength to strength, evolving from local promoters into a multi-divisioned, 360-degree music company with an impressive roster of bands for management, label, publishing and live promotion alongside in house creative, marketing and tour management teams.
Mark has progressed in music with a desire to collaborate with others as well as pioneer his own methods, an approach that recently lead to record deals for Cassia (Distiller) and Larkins (Good Soldier). Now entering it's 10th year, Scruff of the Neck has statement shows on sale at Manchester Apollo (The Slow Readers Club), The Albert Hall (Larkins) and The Ritz (Cassia) as well as huge tours spanning UK and Europe.
