The Agency Group was founded over 30 years ago in London (in 1981) by Neil Warnock, an industry veteran who has represented and/ or consulted for some of the most influential musicians of our time – including: The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, and Michael Jackson. A multi-award winning agent himself (Pollstar’s “UK Booking Agent of the Year” – 2006, 2007, 2008, 2011, & 2012), as Founder & Worldwide President, Neil continues to be the sole agent for a stellar roster of acclaimed international artists from Dolly Parton to Alice Cooper to Motorhead to Liza Minnelli. Neil and his team of 75 highly professional Agents (and 122 uber-dedicated support and administration staff) have been recently joined by Gavin O’Reilly, Worldwide CEO, who has a 20+ year career in media and entertainment.
At The Agency Group, we pride ourselves on building singularly strong ties with our Artists and their Managers by having each of our 76 agents represent specific acts, as distinct from most agencies who restrict their efforts to defined, geographic territories. Headquartered in London, The Agency Group currently operates from six dedicated offices – London, New York, Toronto, Los Angeles, Malmo and Nashville – allowing us to offer a truly global representation to our artists.
The Agency Group’s talent roster – in its music, literary, lecture, culinary, and classical and performing arts divisions – includes the full spectrum in Artists’ career trajectories, including emerging Artists, Artists at the pinnacle of their careers and living legends. Our hallmark characteristic and proven ability to successfully curate and book Talent globally, rather than territorially, enables our Agents not only to form that cohesive and strong relationship with our Artists, but foster our Agents’ abilities to play an integral role in our Artists’ development, their career growth, and their long-term, sustainable success.
