Paradigm has acquired music agency Monterey International. Monterey International spun off from Monterey Peninsula Artists in 2004 when the latter was acquired by Paradigm.
The 23-year-old Monterey International will change its name to Paradigm, effective immediately. Monterey has 14 staff members in Carmel, California and Chicago. The Chicago staff will remain in their offices, while the Carmel staff will relocate to Paradigm’s Monterey location.
Monterey International’s diverse roster of more than 190 artists includes Buddy Guy, Van Morrison, Los Lobos, Lukas Nelson and Promise Of The Real, Roger Daltrey, Jonny Lang, Joss Stone, BADBADNOTGOOD, Taj Mahal, Keb Mo, Whitesnake, The Magpie Salute, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Flint Eastwood, Mavis Staples, Trampled By Turtles, Stick Figure and Trailer Park Boys.
“We’ve been proud of and have had enormous success from our association with the former Monterey Peninsula Artists, and we’re very pleased that all of the Monterey International agents will be joining us,” said Paradigm Chairman and CEO Sam Gores in a release.
Monterey International partners Garry Buck, Paul Goldman and Ron Kaplan said jointly, “We are very passionate about the jobs we do and the artists we represent and have been for decades. We are thrilled to join the talented team at Paradigm and be able to provide the wide range of services to offer our agents and clients under their remarkable banner.”
