Rick Haayen founded Music at Work in May 2014, Haayen grew up on both sides of the Atlantic, becoming equally fluent and at home as an American in Holland or a Dutchman in the US. Combining both cultures and experiences has given him a unique International perspective. Rick has worked over 25 years in the international entertainment industry both in Europe and the United States.
Having worked at major labels (Universal Music Group in USA + Europe) as well as independent labels (CNR + V2 Benelux in Europe) and management firms (The Entertainment Group & Montana ECI), Haayen decided to set up his own firm, Music at Work BV – a management & consultancy firm that represents successful DJs & Producers in the global Dance scene and singer/songwriters & artists from all genres.
Music at Work recently opened an office and a studio in the legendary Laurel Canyon LA area, creating an additional music hub for her clients in addition to the Amsterdam home. The core business will always be entertainment with Music at Work – creating a flexible and comfortable home for the creative community as a whole no matter where the talent calls home.
