Chris Richards Joins The Agency Group

LOS ANGELES (VIP NEWS) — The Agency Group (TAG) has announced Chris Richards is joining the company as an agent in its Los Angeles office.

Richards founded Autonomous Music, a boutique booking agency and management firm based in Portland, Oregon, US, that has been integral in transitioning a growing community of electronic artists out of a soft ticket environment and into hard ticket headline touring acts.

“The Agency Group’s 360 vision for its artist’s falls in line with the approach and vision I have had while growing Autonomous Music,” said Richards (pictured). “Joining my roster with theirs at this time is part of the natural progression for my clients careers, and will bring many new and exciting business and branding opportunities for us all.”

With a decade of experience as a booking agent, Richards brings with him a roster of artists including Emancipator, Ott, Blockhead, Wax Tailor, Mad Professor, Quantic, Novalima and Youngblood Brass Band.

“Chris’s ability to identify talent, booking experience, and eclectic roster will significantly contribute to The Agency Group’s ongoing efforts to expand its electronic music footprint globally,” added Natalia Nastaskin, CEO of TAG’s US operations. –According to Musicweek
