While looking for exposure, Avicii revealed “It was all about house blogs. I was always on those websites.” During his outreach phase, Avicii was discovered by Ash Pournouri (who has since parted ways with Avicii). Apparently Ash Pournouri spotted Tim, reached out and soon became his manager after Tim realized he wanted to make music his full-time business.
