Melbourne’s Jeremy Fox and Vienna Bradley have this week launched their own full-service booking agency, Raida Artists.
With artists from Australia, and abroad part of their growing roster, the pair will focus on each performer’s live strategies.
Raida Artists‘ roster includes Canada’s Snotty Nose Rez Kids, heavy-hitters Columbus, Teenage Dads and more.
“We have an unwavering passion to help artists in whatever capacity we can,” Vienna explains.
“For us, being a full service booking agency is really important. It enables us to work across all aspects of the live strategy, with a strong and collaborative effort between us, the artists and their teams”.
“Vienna and I have worked closely with each other for the last couple of years,” Fox tells TIO.
Both Fox and Bradley worked within the 123 Agency office, prior to a recent staffing reshuffle.
He continues, “The creation of Raida Artists allows us to achieve our shared vision of developing fulfilling and sustainable careers for a range of amazing artists.”
Not only do Raida Artists promise a full-service agency experience, but they’re also implementing a series of safe space and inclusivity policies in their operations.
The pair are also looking into ways to make their business and their acts more environmentally conscious.
“We want to help change the music industry for the better, and are making decisions towards a safer community. We recognise the need as an industry to be more inclusive. As such, we have implemented safe spaces, and inclusivity policies within our contracts and worksheets.”
“We are also wanting to be conscious on the live music industry’s effect on the environment, and one of the most obvious things we can do is to help aid everyone’s awareness, and impact.”
“There are so many amazing companies that are already acting as leaders in this field, and we know it is the right thing to do, to follow suit, by, at the bare minimum, ensuring artists riders are plastic free.”
Raida Artists has officially launched, and is now taking bookings for its artists. For more information, check out the Raida Artists website.
