Irving Azoff Signs Delta Goodrem Post-Live Nation

American music industry mogul Irving Azoff has signed Aussie pop star Delta Goodrem to his management business as she endeavours to establish herself in the American market.

Azoff quit as boss of Live Nation on New Year's Eve and is subject to a non-compete clause with the touring and promotions giant, meaning that for the next two years he'll be focused on re-building his artist managing empire. He took with him artists including The Eagles and Christina Aguilera, which he had originally brought to Live Nation.

This morning News Limited have reported the signing, confirmed by a spokesperson for the singer.

“It's a great collaboration and a great start to the year to work Delta in a global music market,” they said. “She's ready to knuckle down.” Azoff and Goodrem have been acquaintances for a decade.

Tina Kennedy will remain her primary day-to-day manager.

Goodrem has made increasing moves into the US in the past 12 months, with high profile media exposure. Last year's album Child Of The Universe – her first in four years – was also largely conceived during long stints in the country. The album will get an international release this year and it is expected she will capitalise on foreign markets following the second season of ratings hit The Voice Australia, on which she is a judge.
