168 Management

“The name 168 Management comes from the fact that there are 168 hours in the week,” founder Chris Erlanson states. “Too many times artists put their focus into the single hour that they have on stage. 168 Management develops a plan with every artist to be effective even when they’re not on stage through Internet, media and various nontraditional means.”

168 Management was launched in 2007 by Christian Music executive Chris Erlanson and now represents artists such as Phillips Craig and Dean, No Other Name, Bryan Popin and most recently 2015 breakout artist Aryn Michelle.  Chris’ track record in Christian music includes eight years in management at INO Records working with artists like The Jonas Brothers, MercyMe, CeCe Winans, Darlene Zschech, Chris Rice, Sara Groves, The Afters, SONICFLOOd, The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir and numerous others.
