Gold Coast trio Jake Wilton, Chris Lamaro and Brett Sellwood announced last month their acquisition of online blog and social media brand AAA Backstage from prior owner Margin Media. The deal has been in negotiation for the early part of 2017 with the new ownership taking effect 10 april. Starting out as a “get to know the music industry” event in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley, AAA Backstage quickly grew into a nationally adorned music news and reviews website. Now garnering attention from thousands of readers a day, the blog is one of Queensland’s most recognised music platforms. Margin Media Director Mat Lewis said he was happy with the acquisition. “I feel very confident that AAA Backstage will grow leaps and bounds under their ownership and management,” Mat said.
