The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sony Music Entertainment Australia revealed the news at the Queensland Music Awards earlier this evening where he was presented with the QMusic Honorary Award in recognition of his 50-year tenure at the company. 

Speaking at the ceremony, Handlin confirmed his commitment to the Queensland music industry.

"I am extremely proud of the team we have in Brisbane at Sony Music," he said. 

"They are doing an outstanding job. We love breaking Australian talent and putting them on a world stage. We have fine Queenslanders on our roster like Amy Shark, Conrad Sewell, The Veronicas, Pete Murray and a tremendous new artist called Marco who is the real deal."

The new office, to be located in Brisbane's Fortitude Valley, will reportedly open next month.

"As a commitment to the local industry, I am thrilled to let you know that we will be opening exciting new premises in Brisbane next month," Handlin shared.

"It will be in the Valley just around the corner [from The Fortitude Music Hall where the awards ceremony took place] and it will be great to be here in this creative precinct."

Handlin added that "the offices will be very artist friendly and include a studio and writer’s room". 

Sony Music's headquarters are located in Sydney and the company opened a Melbourne-based office in June last year.
