TORONTO (CelebrityAccess) — Paquin Artists Agency has added two new music agents to the team. Adam Kreeft and Rob Thornton have joined the agency and will both be based out of Paquin's Toronto office.
Kreeft comes to Paquin after a five-year stint at The Agency Group and UTA. Before that, he led his own company with a presence in both Toronto and Vancouver. His current roster includes Dear Rouge, The Dirty Nil, Current Swell, Protest the Hero, and The Flatliners.
“I’m excited to join Paquin, an agency that embraces and embodies what I love about being an agent. Passion for rock has always been my driving force, and Paquin will provide the gnarliest home for my clients,” said Kreeft. “I’m really psyched to continue working alongside my longtime colleagues Rob Thornton and Sarah Litt, who will be making the move with me as well."
Thornton also comes to Paquin from UTA/TAG. He got his start in the industry promoting local punk shows before moving into label promotion at Fat Wreck Chords Canada, where he worked with artists such as The Gaslight Anthem, ZZ Top, and EMI.
Also joining the Paquin team is Sarah Litt, who will be taking on an assistant role at the agency.
