Nashville, TN – December 6, 2017 — Paradigm Talent Agency has moved its Nashville operation into larger offices in Downtown Nashville to accommodate the substantial growth and expansion of one of the industry’s most dynamic agencies. The new office is located 222 Second Avenue South, and features a performance space with panoramic views of the Cumberland River, Ascend Amphitheater, the Korean War Veterans Memorial Bridge, and Nissan Stadium.
“Since Paradigm first opened a Nashville office 14 years ago, we have carved an independent path into Music City,” said Paradigm Chairman and CEO Sam Gores. “Since moving to Nashville from Monterey five years ago, our office head Jonathan Levine‘s leadership and impeccable taste have anchored the growth of an extraordinary and unique Third Coast presence for our agency.”
“Over the last few years we have watched our business grow and thrive exponentially, not unlike the city of Nashville,” said Levine, who has won Pollstar Awards for both Agent of the Year and Third Coast Agent of the Year and is a fixture on Variety‘s and Billboard‘s annual Nashville power lists. “We’re thrilled to be moving downtown and want the new offices to be a welcome destination for our diverse roster of artists.”
Levine is joined by agents Andrea Ambrosia, Amanda Ances, Joe Atamian, Max Braun, Jenny DeLoach, Jeffrey Hasson, Nate Herweyer, Matt Korn, Keith Levy, Keith Richards, Matt Runner, Keith Shackleford, Josh Swann, Maxwell Wiebrecht and Clint Wiley. Recent accolades for this outstanding agent team include Atamian being nominated for Third Coast Agent of the Year at this year’s Pollstar Awards, as well as appearing alongside Levine on Billboard‘s “Nashville Power Players” list; Hasson earning a spot on Billboard‘s “40 Under 40” list this year; DeLoach and Wiebrecht each being nominated for IEBA’s Young Professional of the Year award; and Korn being nominated for Casino Booking Agent of the Year at this year’s Casino Entertainment Awards.
Nashville has exploded with a wealth of music (and music business) talent well beyond its renowned country roots, and Paradigm’s Nashville-based agents have built a top-shelf artist roster that reflects that diversity. Clients represented out of the Nashville office include recent GRAMMY nominees Brent Cobb (Best Americana Album) and The Mavericks (Best Americana Album, Best American Roots Song), as well as producer Dave Cobb, who worked on songs and albums that earned a combined five nominations; as well as The Lumineers, Sturgill Simpson, Echosmith, Margo Price, Ben Folds, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Cody Jinks, Big Gigantic, Anderson East, Young The Giant, Dr. John, Fergie, Aubrie Sellers, Flogging Molly, Lee Ann Womack, Asleep at the Wheel, Whitey Morgan, Shakey Graves, Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives, Tyler Childers, Colter Wall, Black Eyed Peas, and many more.
The Nashville office opening follows Paradigm’s move a year ago to new Manhattan offices, and a new, consolidated Los Angeles headquarters will open in early 2018. Paradigm also has offices in London, Chicago, Toronto, Monterey, San Diego, Berkeley, and Austin.
