Amy Thompson, the manager of Scandinavian trio, Swedish House Mafia, announces her split from the group.
Amy got on her Instagram page to make the announcement and it seems that she enjoyed every bit of her 14-year journey with the trio. She took the opportunity to thank everyone, including her daughter.
Although the return of SHM is anticipated in 2019, Amy will not be there for this awaited affair. This is what she mentioned about SHM’s future:
“What a ride. But for me, life’s changed now. The future belongs to a new set of people around them and I wish them luck with all my heart. And I suppose telling people in this way is not very CEO of me. But that’s not who I am. My passion got me here not a boardroom”
And, she ended the post in a signature SHM style, “We Came. We Raved. I Loved it. Thank you so much. Amy x”
Thanks for all the messages I got hit with about this. But I guess now is the time to say that in May this year I told the boys I would be leaving at the end of summer 2018. In this industry people expect you to stay in projects that make you powerful. Ego. Pride. Power. Money. All of that. But for me I have learned that life changes you and what you want to do with that gift is a gift in itself. It was a big decision after 14 years but one I made for myself. I wish them so much joy and happiness and success and I will be watching proudly but the era of me with the boys is at an end. And what an era it was. We changed the game so many times through everything from brave hearts to sheer blindness. What a ride. But for me life’s changed now. The future belongs to a new set of people around them and I wish them luck with all my heart. And I suppose telling people in this way is not very CEO of me. But that’s not who I am. My passion got me here not a boardroom. Thank you to everyone who helped us. Who put up with us. The fans who stayed with us. We made history. But most of all to my daughter who shared me with this crazy ride without ever complaining. We Came. We Raved. I Loved it. Thank you so much. Amy x
