MADISON HOUSE
EXPANDS STAFF WITH
SENIOR AGENTS BRIAN SWANSON & BRENT TACTIC;
ADDS JR AGENT CHRIS PALMER

FIFTH LOCATION ADDED IN
PACIFIC GROVE, CA
 
MADISON HOUSE INC., the Boulder, CO-based booking agency and management company, has expanded their team with three new agents–senior agents Brian Swanson and Brent Tactic, and junior agent Chris Palmer. The entrepreneurial-driven independent company has also added a new office in Pacific Grove, CA (*see details and photos below) on the heels of February’s opening of a nearby Oakland office and an expanded Nashville location.
“The landscape has changed enormously,” says Madison House Co-Founder Nadia Prescher. “Anyone who has been in the business a few decades has certainly seen a massive shift in the number of independent agencies operating in North America. 23 years later, we still pride ourselves on owning an agency that focuses on our independent spirit -one that continues to benefit our clients.” Prescher adds; “Our longtime clients are key to us, as well as new artists whose careers we are passionately building amid the ever-changing trends in the touring landscape.”
 
Agent Brian Swanson comes to MADISON HOUSE from Paradigm Agency. Having started his stint in the industry as a talent buyer for Prince’s Glam Slam nightclub, he went on to build a vast career at agencies including Monterey International and Proton Productions, and starting his own shop Hello! Booking which lasted six years. Brian will operate MADISON HOUSE’s new office in Pacific Grove, CA. Among the wide variety of artists he represents, joining acts will include: Smash Mouth, Spin Doctors (including solo dates of Chris Barron and Eric Schenkman), Alan Doyle, The Beths, Bad Bad Hats, Jesse Cook, Trailer Park Boys, Classic Albums Live, GRLwood, Matt Andersen, Lankum and Emily Wolfe.
“The move to Madison House couldn’t feel more natural for me and the artists I bring to the fold,” says Swanson. “The energy I’ve witnessed since we started talking has been mind-blowing.  This is about open mindedness and embracing someone’s vision, whether it’s on the artist side or the agent’s side. I have known Nadia (Prescher), Jesse (Aratow) and Adam (Bauer) for longer than I care to admit, so walking through these doors kind of feels like coming home, or finally arriving at the place I need to be. Everyone has embraced my approach, because it is their approach. Sign great artists, make the right decisions, don’t forget about the details. It is a simple mantra and simple mantras work. I’m looking forward to what lies ahead. It’s going to be fantastic!” Swanson‘s email is: [email protected].

His roster that will join him consists of: Ana Sia, Anoraak, Astronomar, Bad Gyal, Dances With White Girls, Dave Nada, Fat Tony, Fatherdude, Feign, Four Color Zack, Frameworks, Hook, ill-esha, Jantsen, Jon Casey, Kraak & Smaak, Late Night Radio, Lex Luger, Little People, Mark Redito, MikeQ, Moods, Moullinex, Natasha Kmeto, Nedarb, OSHUN, P.O.S, Phutureprimitive, Satin Jackets, SSION, Starkey, Stayloose, The Flashbulb, Tittsworth, vōx and Yuksek. Tactic‘s email is: [email protected].

Chris Palmer will be a junior agent supporting Swanson‘s roster and building his own roster in the coming months out of the Ann Arbor, MH office. Palmer comes to MADISON HOUSE from Paradigm where he has spent the past 6 years working alongside Swanson. Palmer has been an instrumental element in expanding that roster with the addition of Bad Bad Hats, The Beths, GRLwood and Girl Friday. Palmer‘s email is: [email protected]
