The Industry Observer can exclusively reveal that Select Music booker Katie Rynne is moving into a new role at Village Sounds.

Rynne has worked with domestic booking agency Select Music for 8 years. Rynne has worked across a portfolio of artists including The Preatures, Montaigne, Japanese Wallpaper, LANKS, and Ziggy Alberts. Rynne’s recent highlights at Select Music include booking a mostly sold out tour for Alberts, including a sold out show at Festival Hall.

As of this morning, Rynne will work within the Village Sounds team. She’ll be part of a group which represents key domestic artists DMA’s, Courtney Barnett, and Violent Soho; as well as global hit-maker Vance Joy, and darling pop group Cub Sport.

In a TIO exclusive, Village Sounds’ General Manager Andy Gumley stated, “Katie is one of the most well respected agents in the country. Her knowledge and modern approach to breaking acts is something we have always admired.”

He continues, “The live landscape is forever changing and agencies need to evolve with it… bringing in current modern day minds like Katie is a big part of that and something we are really excited about. Gumley adds, “Katie joining our team is a huge asset for our current roster and future artists to come.”

Rynne is looking forward to being part of such a forward-thinking and industry-leading organisation. Village Sounds Agency is part of a broader Secret Sounds group which operates Splendour In The Grass, and touring festival Falls Festival.
