Madison House Picks Up Philosophy's Egenthal & Samuel

BOULDER (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Madison house has tapped industry veterans Phil Egenthal and Wes Samual as the latest additions to the company.

Egenthal is the founder and owner of South Florida’s booking and management company The Philosophy Agency. The majority of the Philosophy Agency roster, including The New Deal, Benevento-Russo Duo, Brothers Past, Future Rock, The Mutaytor, Telepath, BioDiesel, Juno Reactor, American Babies and the Postmarks, will be making the jump to Madison House. In addition, newcomers Lance Herbstrong, The Fire and Reason, and Van Ghost have all signed on to join Egenthal and Samuel.

Egenthal launched the Florida-based Philosophy in 2006, after leaving AM Only.

"I have always admired Madison House's innovative booking and management strategies. After meeting with several agencies, it became clear that Madison House offers the competitiveness of major agencies without sacrificing the creative vision and hands-on artist development of successful boutique firms." said Egenthal of the move.

Wes Samuel, also an agent at Philosophy, will continue to handle day to day booking for many former TPA artists. Both Samuel and Egenthal will be working out of Madison House's Boulder office, beginning on Oct. 4th. There is no word yet on whether "Boca" Phil will keep his beloved moniker or a more bearded "Boulder" Phil will emerge. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
