Actress, singer, producer, entrepreneur and author Kate Hudson has signed with Jason Owen and Sandbox Entertainment Group for music management, the company announced Monday (Jan. 9).
Hudson is known for her work in films including Almost Famous, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, but has also showcased her vocal talent in films including Nine and Music (which earned Hudson a Golden Globe nomination for best actress in a comedy or musical), as well as episodes of the hit television show Glee.
“Music has always been my touchstone,” Hudson said in a statement. “To finally feel ready to share mine is deeply personal to me, almost like a musical memoir. Writing this album over the past year and a half has been the most gratifying and immersive experience and I couldn’t be more excited to partner with Jason to bring it into the world. I can’t wait to hit the ground running with him on this and other creative ventures.”
“Kate Hudson is a superstar of our generation,” Owen added. “Much like other icons in film and stage — from Judy Garland to Lady Gaga — Kate is a multifaceted entertainer who clearly has a deep connection to music. I could not be more honored and excited to help bring her brilliant music to the world and to work with such an incredible talent but mostly a such wonderful person. Big things are coming.”
Hudson will continue to be represented by CAA, Untitled Entertainment, Full Coverage Communications and Jackoway Austen Tyerman Wertheimer Mandelbaum Morris Bernstein Trattner & Klein.
During a recent episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Hudson said that she’s been making an album for over a year, and revealed that she’s been writing music since age 19, though she had never publicly shared her own music.
“I have no expectations. I just want to put a record out,” she said during the interview. See the clip here:
