Jason Magnus

The son of former Hong Kong Electric chairman George Colin Magnus, Harvard graduate Jason knows how to multitask. He currently manages the investment arm of the family business and his own investment vehicle, which focuses on real estate and education—all the while pursuing an entrepreneurial career in the area he loves the most: music. Since 2015, Jason’s been writing and recording his own tunes.

In January this year, with more than 50 songs under his belt, he was signed by ATC Management—the team behind Radiohead, Nick Cave and PJ Harvey, among others. Jason, who plays music with a childhood friend, is currently in the mixing phase of a debut album that’s being produced by Chris “Merrick” Hughes (who’s worked with Paul McCartney, Peter Gabriel and Tears for Fears). Keep your eyes­—and ears—open for Jason.
