People

Julia Bruns

Managing Director

Julia

Lucky enough to have grown up in the musical wonderland of Liverpool, Julia's first break came in bagging work experience at superclub Cream. For nine years she learnt every aspect of talent booking, promoting and producing live events, from club gigs to festivals and international tours. Julia went on to work with AEG Live, Live Nation, Bestival, Ministry of Sound and the Malawi Lake of Stars International Music Festival in Africa. In 2007 she moved into the world of brands, producing live events for various agencies in London. Having a serious passion for music, Julia still gets to at least 3 gigs per week... even in winter! Julia founded OURKIDBROTHER in 2009.

Charlie Jameson

Senior Talent & Production Manager

Charlie

Hailing from Bristol (The Home of Bass) Charlie has music written into his DNA. As a fresh-faced 14-year-old, he landed work experience at DJ's Choice in Bristol with Paul Morrissey. Meeting local legends DJ Krust and Andy Smith sealed the deal on his career direction. Soon came a stint at Pete Tong's FFRR in London. Then, after four years of travelling, Charlie started promoting his own reggae and funk nights. He also worked with Chibuku Shake Shake and was a monthly regular at the front for Bugged Out! at Nation in Liverpool. Charlie has been involved with the Lake of Stars festival since its inception in 2004, including a year living in Malawi producing the 2008 event. He has also worked for Harvey Goldsmith, Ministry of Sound, Sevens7 and Inca Productions, and continues work voluntarily with the Lake of Stars Festival. Charlie joined OURKIDBROTHER at the end of 2009.

Neema Fauvrelle

Talent Manager

Neema

Neema's musical education started in an arch off Villiers Street in London's Charing Cross, at the tender age of 14. What began with sneaking out of her parent's house to go raving became an almost unhealthy obsession with music - especially for all things electronic. Neema started an internship at MTV in 2001 and left seven years later as Label Manager, working in the Talent and Music department and travelling the world with MTV Dance. After having some much deserved time off to get hitched and have a baby she is back in the mix working with OURKIDBROTHER, loving being involved again.

Andy Lemay (Zing!)

Talent Manager

Andy

Andy has been DJ-ing for more than 10 years and collecting records a lot longer. When promoting club nights in Leeds and London became less of a challenge, Andy naturally progressed to launching an independent record label called somethinksounds in 2009. The label has set him up to DJ at festivals such as Glastonbury, Soundwave and Outlook and in cities across the world (favourites being Berlin, Paris and New York). Andy also worked for the Malawi Lake of Stars Festival and the Red Bull Music Academy in London before joining OURKIDBROTHER in 2010.
