NASHVILLE (CelebrityAccess) — Jeff Roberts, President of the talent agency formerly known as JRA Fine Arts, announced that the company has a new moniker, Ovation Artist Group, effective immediately.
For the past five years, JRA Fine Arts has built a reputation as one of the leading booking agencies specializing in performing arts centers and symphonies but plans to expand its focus and roster to include artists in Jazz, Bluegrass, Americana, Pop, Magic, and Theatre.
To wit, the agency has recently signed several notable jazz artists including vocalist and composer Kurt Elling, as well as jazz pianist Ramsey Lewis. Other new signings include soul music legend Sam Moore, country artists Dailey & Vincent, Christian performer Sandi Patty and former Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies frontman Mike Farris.
As a part of the expansion, the company will expand its booking efforts beyond the PAC to include clubs, festivals, casinos and other concert venues.
“It’s an exciting time for Ovation Artist Group and our artists. We felt a bit limited in the past but with this change, the addition of a few agents and satellite offices in London and Los Angeles, the sky’s the limit for what we can offer our clients,” Roberts said of the rebranding.
