A new talent agency in the US is set to bring us the best of Irish stars.
Some of Ireland’s greatest talent is signing up with a new U.S. agency set to bring us more fantastic Irish entertainment than ever before.
Iowa-based company VenuWorks has announced the addition of a new division, the VenuWorks Agency, to its existing group, and they have already signed up some incredible Irish acts.
The headline acts represented by VenuWorks Agency include Ireland’s biggest star Nathan Carter, who since catapulting to fame with five #1 albums, two #1 singles, and three #1 music DVDs in his native country, is now blazing a trail to international success.
Also on the roster is Chloë Agnew, an original member of Celtic Woman supergroup, who toured the world with Celtic Woman for almost a decade as the group’s youngest soloist and performed to over 3 million fans worldwide before setting out on a solo career.
It also boasts Noël The Musical, the uplifting Holiday musical from international top-selling children’s author Eoin Colfer (Artemis Fowl) and preeminent Irish film composer Liam Bates. NOËL is directed by award-winning director Sam Scalamoni (Disney’s Elf National Tour, Beauty & The Beast) and produced by VenuWorks Theatricals.
Based out of company headquarters in Ames IA, and with offices in NY, the VenuWorks Agency establishes itself as a boutique booking group, whose primary function is to create and develop complete touring strategies for the artists it represents and to work in close collaboration with Performing Arts Centers, Promoters, Civic and Municipal Stages, Festivals and State Fairs across the USA.
The principal agents behind the company are VenuWorks founder and C.E.O. Steve Peters, internationally renowned artist and Emmy® nominated producer Michael Londra, and marketing and Public Television specialist Jean Clancy.
Drawing on their collective and extensive experience in all aspects of booking, mounting and marketing shows in the performing arts world, the founders of VenuWorks Agency bring their expertise in tour creation and management to their artists and a commitment to excellent service with high caliber content to the venues with whom they will partner.
Adopting a personal and dynamic approach, the company’s main focus will be on helping the artists it represents develop and grow their careers on a national and international stage, while working hand in hand with presenters to provide comprehensive marketing support for each show they contract.
