Chugg Music are thrilled to have Mick join the team.  “Having been involved in many projects since the late 80s I am excited to actually be planting the Chugg Music flag in the region.

After 5 months testing the waters we have no doubt that this will be a great step forward for both Australian and Asian music” said Michael Chugg.
“I am delighted to be working with Chuggi, Andrew & their team, in launching Chugg Music Asia and very excited for the opportunity to help develop the careers in Asia of the formidable roster of artists that they have assembled, including Sheppard, Lime Cordiale, Mia Rodriguez, Casey Barnes, to name but a few .
