About Starpower Management
Starpower Management was conceived and started in the late 1990’s, as a Chicago-based model and talent agency titled “The Starpower Agency.” The name was taken from the title of the song “Starpower” (with its unique spelling with both words ran together and the lower case “p”) by the rock band Sonic Youth, with the band’s blessings.
Starpower CEO Bruce Edwin was speaking with Sonic Youth guitarist and singer Thurston Moore back at that time, and asked Thurston if he could use the name for a new agency. Thurston said he thought it sounded cool, but that he should ask Kim, as it was her song that she wrote. Kim Gordon was in the bus changing, getting ready to play, so Thurston went and asked her on behalf of Bruce. Thurston came back and said, “Hey Bruce, Kim says it’s fine. She digs fashion. I wish you the best with that man.” And the rest is history.
Today, Starpower Management is a multi-million-dollar motion picture production, management, publishing, and public relations entertainment company. Recognized as one of the most powerful entertainment boutique companies in the world, the company represents over 10 billion dollars worth of deals in the areas of masterworks of fine art, literary property, runway and fashion models, celebrities, Grammy Award winners, entertainment companies, billionaires, and small businesses among more.
From early rock fanzines and chapbooks to a hard copy glossy cover rock magazine, Starpower now publishes Hollywood Sentinel dot com. It is also launching a new movie star site next quarter and has five books of poetry in preparation with its upcoming new publishing label. It will later expand to include a comic book division to tie in with its motion picture department.
