British guitar amplification legends, Marshall, have added to their growing house of services to the industry with the launch of their booking agency, Marshall Live Agency.
Commenting on the launch Managing Director, Jonathan Ellery had this to say.
“From day one, Marshall Amplification has prioritised the needs of musicians and done whatever we can to support live music. Marshall Live Agency is a natural continuation of this legacy. 2020 was a devastating year for the venues, musicians and support networks that rely on income from live performances and we’re not out the woods yet, so it is more important than ever to find creative solutions for audiences to reconnect. Marshall Live Agency under the guidance of Stuart Vallans and working with the wider Marshall business, will aim to play a key role in nurturing young talent for both the short term recovery and long term growth of live music.”
Head of Marshall Live Agency, Stuart Vallans, also had this to add.
“I’ve been in the industry for 15 years and quite often agent performance is measured by fees generated. Marshall has straight away thrown that out the window as it’s not how they do business. The Agency performance will be based on how many people we inspire to see live music. It’s incredible to be backed to do the right thing and put the needs of artists and venues first.”
