Daniel Glatman (born 27 June 1975) is an English pop music manager, best known for co-creating and managing the boy band Blue.[1]

Among the artists he has represented are the Froncysyllte Male Voice Choir, signed in 2006 after Glatman heard them perform at a wedding.[2]

He also signed the Regimental Band of the Coldstream Guards which released their first album, Heroes with Universal's Decca Label. The album went on to achieve Platinum status.[3]

In January 2010 he launched the highly publicised Punchbowl Recordings label with Guy Ritchie. The label is a subsidiary of Universal Music and will house the Punchbowl Band, a traditional Irish quartet which play frequently at Ritchie’s West End pub.[4]

In February 2011, Glatman described Blue's decision to represent the UK at the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest as "reckless insanity".

He said: "They will have to win. Anything less and their reputation would be in tatters. It is the equivalent of Lewis Hamilton entering a go-kart race - he will be the strong favourite but there is also the possibility he could lose. So why risk it?"[5]

Blue finished in 11th position.
