What makes us different

We’re managed exclusively by top professional musicians, which means that we’re utterly passionate about the quality of our acts. It also means we’re perfectionists - we understand the importance of getting the little touches right. Not only that but years of industry experience has given us access to the calibre of musicians it would be near impossible to find elsewhere.

Our artists

The musicians we choose to work with are selected from colleagues in the industry who we trust, respect and admire. Unlike many other agencies, none of them pay to be represented on our books. They’re there because we believe in them and their ability to deliver extraordinary performances. Our artists have worked with some of the top musicians in the world from Radiohead and Adele to the London Philharmonic Orchestra and have performed at all manner of prestigious events from the Olympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies to the BBC Proms and Glastonbury.
